Tiny Galaxy is an entertaining little Wii U eShop title that players may want to check out. It’s a challenging game with an adorable sound track and interesting visuals. Tiny Galaxy isn’t your average platformer and is an interesting take on the genre. Rather than traversing levels from left-to-right found in a typical platformer, players are tasked with performing vertical jumps from planet to planet while collecting the stars located on each one. While it’s not a perfect game by any means, if you have a few extra bucks laying in your eshop account, you may want to give this one a try.
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.
Ubisoft is holding a grand sale on Nintendo systems and you can check out the eShop deals below. I would highly suggest picking up a bunch of titles because most of these are very nice and they are at ridiculous prices. Check out the list below:
Here is the Wii U VC trailer for Yoshi Touch & Go. Yoshi Touch & Go (which originally came out on Nintendo DS) is one of the games hitting the Wii U Virtual Console this week, in Europe so hopefully we will hear something regarding the US VC soon.
Here is a list of what you will find on this week on the Nintendo eShop. We suggest giving Tiny Galaxy a look as we were able to secure an advanced copy of the game and are enjoying it a lot (look for a review soon).
