NINDIES SUMMER JAM – TRAILER

Get ready for #Nindies Summer Jam! Every Thursday in September, a new digital release for Wii U, Nintendo 3DS or both, will hit the Nintendo eShop at 10% of listing price for the first week!

Check out these participating #Nindies Summer Jam titles, as well as a variety of upcoming Nindie games for the rest of 2016 and beyond!

It’s a good thing that these Nindie titles are showing up on the Wii U as the release schedule for the dying system is pretty dismal. It’s unfortunate because the Wii U was a very nice system that will never full reach its true potential. I do have to say that these indie titles do look pretty nice and I see a number that I want to download.

Check out the trailer and let us know what “Nindie” is your favorite.

FAST Racing NEO : Neo Future PACK DLC Trailer

Here is the FAST Racing NEO : Neo Future PACK DLC trailer for your viewing pleasure. The Wii U downloadable title reminds us of FZERO and may be the closest thing to Nintendo’s classic that the Wii U will see. The Neo Future DLC Pack is coming soon and introduces some brand new courses that certainly look stunning. It always surprises me what the team at Shin’en Multimedia can do…

Enjoy.

maxresdefault

Pokken Tournament, the popular fighting game for the Wii U, has now shipped over 1 million units. The title, which debuted on the Wii U 5 months ago, seems to have struck a cord with fans worldwide and we hope to see the game receive a much deserved sequel.

Good news for Bandai’s brawler… Here’s hoping we get another one on the upcoming Nintendo NX console.

Did you pick up Pokken Tournament for Wii U?

YOOKA-LAYLEE – GAMESCOM TRAILER

An all new trailer for the platforming title Yooka-Laylee has been released, so be sure to check it out above. Yooka-Laylee is hoping to bring back some classic platforming gameplay to PS4, XBOX One and Wii U (and presumably NX) in 2017 and things are shaping up rather nicely. Team17, founded in 1990, are a fully independent Video Game Developer and Games Label, responsible for the Worms™ series, Beyond Eyes, Sheltered and many more.

Take a look at the new trailer and let us know what you all think. I love the use of color in the art style and I am praying that the game plays as good as it looks. Look for this one next year.

Enjoy.

Paper Mario: Color Splash – Rescue V: Episode 1

Here is a whimsical all new video showcasing one of the Wii U’s last big titles, Paper Mario: Color Splash. Follow the Rescue Squad as they take a look back at Mario’s adventure on Prism Island. I am impressed with the games visuals thus far and love how they seem to be keeping the humorous side of things with this series. It seems as though there will be more episodes like the one above in the near future so stay tuned for those.

Paper Mario: Color Splash is set to release in October for the Wii U. Color me in Nintendo.
