Acclaimed development studio WayForward has announced via Twitter that it will be bringing its first Gameboy Colour game Xtreme Sports to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. The company announced that the game will be available to download on the 7th of August. You can watch a video for the retro themed title, below.
Game developer WayForward has revealed via Twitter that Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse will be delayed for another couple of months. The 3DS platform title was due for release between last December and mid-March this year. However, WayForward has informed fans that the game will be in development for a little longer, in order for the team to polish and add the “finishing touches”.
Though there’s still haze surrounding the exact release date of the title, WayForward expect Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse to land on the 3DS eShop in the second quarter of 2014.
“Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse will be in development for a couple more months while we add a few finishing touches. Almost there!” – WayForward via Twitter
Matt Bozon, WayForward’s Creative Director and founding member, has revealed on Twitter that he expects Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse to be released in the next couple of months. Bozon has nailed it down to somewhere between December 21st and March 19th 2014. Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is due for release on the Nintendo 3DS.
Looking at sometime this winter for Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse. So Dec 21 – Mar 19 timeframe. A couple more months, best guess.
D3 Publisher has released a launch trailer for Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-Bit Land. Developed by WayForward, the game is based on the Cartoon Network series Regular Show. It stars best friends Mordecai and Rigby – both of whom get transported into a variety of mysterious video games. The characters must then use their skills to get back home. Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-Bit Land is now available for Nintendo 3DS.
WayForward and Two Tribes are both continuing their ardent support of Nintendo consoles by bringing a couple of tried and true games from their catalogs to the Wii U this month. WayForward’s Mighty Switch Force 2, released on Nintendo 3DS in June, will be ported over to the Wii U on October 17th in North America and October 25th in all other regions. The title will sell for only $5.99. The original Mighty Switch Force was given new stages and visuals when it was brought to Wii U from 3DS, so here’s hoping WayForward will continue this trend.
Additionally, Two Tribes have announced on their Twitter page that the first Toki Tori will be rushed out onto the Wii U eShop before month’s end. The title had been previously confirmed along with two other puzzle classics from the Two Tribes vault, and now the company has revealed that it will be arriving even sooner than expected. Even though the Wii U picked up some momentum from the release of The Wind Waker HD in North America, the ailing console can certainly use the help of these stellar games coming to its eShop this month.
WayForward’s campaign for Shantae: Half Genie Hero ended its Kickstarter run on Friday, finishing with a total of $776,084, nearly double its intended goal of $400,000. In addition, WayForward revealed that they received over $37,000 in additional funding from Paypal donations, for a grand total of over $811,000. The impressive haul for Shantae will not only fund the game, but has allowed the campaign to meet several of its stretch goals, including extra costumes, chapters, and the ability to play as Shantae’s nemesis, Risky Boots. Paypal funds will continue to be collected, with that sum going toward the development of cut scenes for the game. Half-Genie Hero is scheduled to be released in October of 2014 over multiple platforms, including Wii U.
WayForward, the developer behind DuckTales Remastered and Shantae , have revealed on Reddit that they would love to make a game in the My Little Pony series. WayForward’s Game Director Adam Tierney explained in a Ask Me Anything thread that there’s a lot of developers at WayForward who would absolutely love to work on a Pony game. Tierney said that if people want a My Little Pony game then they really need to contact Hasbro.
Oh, and we’re 100% not kidding, people – SO many people here at WayForward wanna make a My Little Pony: FiM game. Lauren Faust ROCKS. Make it happen, Bronies! You guys should email Hasbro – tell them how much you’d like to see a WF-developed FiM game
