Great news for fans of the Mario Kart franchise as Nintendo UK has announced that Mario Kart Super Circuit will be arriving on the Wii U eShop this week. Yes, you’ll be able to relive the original Cheese Land and Ribbon Road on your Wii U console. Mario Kart Super Circuit will be coming this Thursday.
Yes, we’ve finally got details of a brand new horror title which is coming to Wii U. The game is called Bizerta: Silent Evil and is developed by Edrox Interactive. You won’t be able to find the game at retail though as it’s currently for the eShop only. Edrox promise that the game will take full advantage of the Wii U GamePad, so I expect there to be some interesting functionality there as the potential is endless. You can check out a summary of the story and some screenshots, below.
Bizerta: Silent Evil has an interesting story that is still being fully developed. The developer shared with us that in the game you play as a 15 year old boy who awakens in a “Dark World” and is now a 30 year old man. He must find out what caused it, why he is there, and how he can escape this area. The game uses the GamePad in an excellent way too. The developer shared some prototype (not finished) screenshots of different uses of the GamePad.
Nintendo has just released Code Name STEAM Version 1.1.0 on the eShop. You will be pleased to know that the update allows you to speed up alien movement while the enemy turns are taking place. The latest update for the game takes up 27 blocks of space. You can read the official patch notes for the game, below.
A new software update is now available for the Code Name S.T.E.A.M. game. This update adds a fast-forward button to speed up alien movement on the enemy turn.
When playing on a Nintendo 2DS, Nintendo 3DS, or Nintendo 3DS XL system, the fast-forward function roughly doubles the speed of the enemy turn.
When playing on a New Nintendo 3DS XL system, the fast-forward function roughly triples the speed of the enemy turn.
Ronimo Games is proud to announce Swords & Soldiers II will be releasing exclusively on the Nintendo eShop on Wii U on May 21st. Swords & Soldiers II is the sequel to our award-winning debut title, which launched on WiiWare in 2009. The sequel is bigger, better, and more awesome in every conceivable way, but fans of the original will find the same accessible-yet-challenging 2D strategy experience they’ve come to know and love. The game has been in development for more than two and half years, but we’re still hard at work to apply the final bits of polish.
Swords & Soldiers II follows the Viking chieftain Redbeard on an adventure that takes him across the globe (from the snowy peaks of Redbeard’s homeland to the Netherworld and the even more demonic party island Barbeardos), and pits him against the all-new Demon Horde and Persian Army factions. The world needs some serious savin’, and it looks like the meatloving Redbeard and his local Kebab salesman Al’Yucaneet have an important part to play in events to come. Aside from the extensive campaign, players will be able to face off against their friends in the local multiplayer mode.
