Nintendo TVii Shutting Down Service 

  
Nintendo’s TVii service is set to close up shop come next month. The service was available for the past 3 years and was a nifty little feature for the Wii U system that could’ve been used a bit better if they decided to “flesh out” the app. Here is what they had to say regarding Nintendo TVii:

After almost 3 years of finding, watching and engaging with Nintendo TVii, we will be ending the service on August 11, 2015 at 3:00pm PT. At the same time, we will be closing the Nintendo TVii Miiverse community.

We sincerely thank you for all of your engagement within the community and the Nintendo TVii service. We look forward to your contributions within our many other Miiverse communities.

Nintendo of America has now tweeted that they are excited to bring Devil’s Third to Wii U and that we should expect more on the game soon. After all that I have been reading about the game, this is kind of a surprise. I am eager to see what happens with all of this and feel that we may be getting a new Nintendo Direct soon (just a hunch though).

Above is the North American boxart for the Wii U exclusive, Yoshi’s Woolly World. This boxart showcases what the Amiibo bundle will look like and comes with an adorable, green Yarn Yoshi Amiibo. We are really hoping Nintendo can figure out their Amiibo problems and get more in the hands of gamers who crave the collectable toy. I LOVE the art direction for Yoshi’s Woolly World and I really hope I can get my hands on this attractive bundle.

Let me know if you plan on picking this one up.

What’s in the box?!

The physical version of Shovel Knight contains everything we’ve released so far. First, there is the original Shovel Knight campaign with all the content you know and love! Also included is Shovel Knight’s first content update: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows. Finally, there’s a full-featured Challenge mode with more than 50 crazy challenge levels to explore!

Of course, like the digital version, every boxed version will also receive FREE future updates as they become available:

Specter Knight’s Campaign – A full campaign starring the shadowy scythe spinner!
King Knight’s Campaign – A crazy campaign with the gilded goob himself!
Battle Mode – Duel with up to 4 players as your favorite heroic or villainous knight! (Wii U/PS4/XB1/PC exclusive)

Body Swap Mode – Did you ever wish Shovel Knight was a lady, or Shield Knight was a dude? Well, now you’ll be able to change them all around, along with the rest of the cast!

Oh, and one more thing: every boxed copy of Shovel Knight will include a lavish instruction booklet similar to the Kickstarter reward. No 2-page inserts here! You deserve a full manual, to hold in your hot little shaking hands and pore over as you wait to get home!

This game is said to be one of the best out there so if you have yet to pick up the title, this seems like a pretty great deal.
