Looks As Though A Web Version Of The Nintendo eShop Could Be Coming

NeoGAF member L-A has done a bit of digging and it looks as though a web version of the Nintendo eShop is currently in development at Nintendo. It isn’t too surprising considering Microsoft and Sony have similar offerings where you can pre-purchase content online and download it to your console. There aren’t any hints as to when this is coming, but it could be announced in a Nintendo Direct.

Thanks, Kallum and TheDuke4711

Xseed Says Rune Factory 4 Will Be Coming To Europe Digitally

Xseed has told online gaming publication Siliconera that the company is trying to release Rune Factory 4 in Europe. The good news is the game will be coming, but it will be a digital only release. News emerged yesterday that the game was coming to Europe when a listing for Rune Factory 4 was found on the USK ratings board. Here’s what Xseed’s Executive VP, Ken Berry, had to say about the situation.

“The situation is that we know the Rune Factory 4 fans in Europe have suffered enough with one cancellation already,, so we didn’t want to announce anything until the game passed [Nintendo of Europe] certification and we were sure its digital-only eShop release was imminent since we are using a different programming house to try to pick up where the original dev team left off.”

“Though I can’t disclose which development house is handling the PAL localization programming duties for us, I can say that it’s been in the works for months already and we hope to start the master submission process with NOE within the next couple weeks.”

Hazewalker Coming To Wii U eShop And Will Feature Proper Wii U GamePad Support

Hazewalker, the upcoming dark fantasy Metroidvania game slated to go live on Kickstarter on October 15th, will be coming to the Wii U console with fully featured Wii U Gamepad support, TheoryForm Games has announced.

“I want to bring Metroidvania games into the next generation,” lead designer David Pierce said. “I want to redefine what people expect from these kinds of games. I’ve been excited by ‘second screen’ possibilities and the kinds of gameplay experiences they can open up since Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles on the Gamecube and Gameboy Advance.”

“Imagine being able to look at your map, thumb through your character’s journal, or see your inventory in the palm of your hands; for me, that’s really exciting. We’ve just started to scratch the surface of the really cool possibilities this brings to the table.”

“We are fully committed to an awesome, next-gen second screen experience, and Nintendo has been a fantastic partner to work with so far,” David said.

If successfully funded on Kickstarter, TheoryForm has committed to releasing Hazewalker on the Wii U, along with the previously announced PC, Mac, and Linux. TheoryForm will be announcing further console plans as the Kickstarter approaches.
