Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures Coming To Wii U On April 2nd In US

The official Nintendo site mentions that Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures will be arriving on the Wii U, April 2nd. It has been a long wait, but it’s finally coming next month in the United States and will set you back $10. If you are not familiar with the zany 2D game then you can read more information about it below or alternatively watch the retro themed video embedded above.

Influenced by retro classics, Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures features the AVGN and friends as they blast their way through 10 levels of fun, fast paced 2D action based on the AVGN’s adventures in his online series. With multiple playable characters, power ups, cameos galore, tons of secrets and more, we’re making a game that all fans of video games will enjoy. If you’re a fan of old school difficulty, fart jokes, The Nerd and/or old school platformers chances are you’ll enjoy AVGN Adventures.  Some say “hard” we saying “rewarding!” Why? Because every check point you get, every boss you beat, every accomplishment is earned. You feel like like a stud. This is a game that allows you to brag to your friends if you beat it. Yes, this is the official The Angry Video Game Nerd game!

Pokemon Shuffle’s First Passcode Released, Plus New Event Details

Game Freak and Nintendo’s free-to-play eShop title Pokemon Shuffle has updated with new events today following its downloadable patch last week. Along with new events, the match-3 game has introduced its first worldwide passcode. Players will have to enter a short code on the settings screen under “Passcodes”, where you can enter the following number and obtain two Mega starts for your Pokemon team: 20150007. So if you’ve been in a spot of trouble lately, the two mega starts – which allow specific caught Pokemon to mega evolve before the battle begins – will help players to clear some of those pesky higher levels.

In addition to the passcode, new events have also been added. The Pokemon Company has extended the Mew event until March 23, which is lucky for players who have been nabbing the daily 1,000 coins from it. Plus, alongside the daily Rotom events, players can battle and capture the legendary Kyogre from Pokemon Alpha Sapphire until March 23. You’ll also unlock a jewel the first time you complete the battle, too. Let us know if you’ve been enjoying the free-to-play game in the comment section below.
