SNES-Inspired Title Lumo Aiming For Wii U Release

Not many people have heard of the upcoming indie title, Lumo. Developed solely by seasoned professional Gareth Noyce, the isometric puzzle game is set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation Vita, PC, Mac, and Linux in 2016. While the list presently excludes Nintendo platforms, Noyce isn’t stopping from pursuing a Wii U release. In a Twitter conversation today, Noyce addressed rumors saying he is “100% trying to make it happen”:

Lumo is inspired by SNES game Equinox, which was also an isometric puzzle title. For a better idea of what Lumo constitutes, check out the video below. Would you want Lumo on Wii U?

Super Meat Boy Teased For A Wii U Release

Today is a hell of a day for Team Meat. Besides officially releasing Super Meat Boy on PlayStation consoles via PlayStation Plus, they have released a blog post on their official blog hinting at a possible Wii U release. Among the lengthy post thanking the porters, Sony, and the fans, Team Meat threw in a small tease:

To the fan’s we’re still excluding I’ll leave you with this: Wii haven’t forgotten about U.

Undoubtedly a hint for Nintendo owners, it seems like Team Meat may be pushing to release their indie-darling on Wii U next. Super Meat Boy originally released October 20, 2010 on Xbox 360 and has since been re-released on PC, Mac, and (as of today) PlayStation consoles.

Rakoo & Friends Available Next Week On Wii U

According to a tweet from developer Moving Player, their 2D side-scrolling Wii U title Rakoo & Friends will be available October 15th on Nintendo eShop in both America and Europe. The game, which starts the titular fox Rakoo, is a remake of a Bandai Namco mobile game (Rakoo’s Adventures). However, the Wii U version is more than just a port, sporting five-person multiplayer and Wii U GamePad integration. Check out the trailer below:

Gory Game Slain! Won’t Hit Wii U Until Early Next Year

It looks like Wii U owners won’t be able to get their hands on the gory Slain! until next year. Although it was supposed to launch earlier this year, the action-adventure game from Digerati Distribution is now targeting a “mid-late Q1 2016” release on consoles, including Wii U. Set in a Gothic world, Slain! revolves around a lycanthropic hero named Bathoryn who seeks to liberate seven towers from seven deadly overlords. Along the way Bathoryn will encounter puzzles, traps and monsters in his path.


Freedom Planet Won’t Arrive In Europe Until November

Wii U owners in Europe and Australia will have to wait a bit longer for Freedom Planet to come out. The combat-based platformer won’t arrive in either region until November, according to developer GalaxyTrail, which has yet to announce a solid release date. Freedom Planet debuted last week in North America on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. It asks players to help a monster girl named Lilac and her friends save the world from a war influenced by an alien attack force.
