Official PR - Tetraminos to fit into the Wii U eShop on September 1st in Europe

Bangkok, August 29th, 2016. – Sanuk Games is proudly dropping Tetraminos onto the Wii U eShop on September 1st in Europe (€4.99). The game will be released at a later date in America ($4.99).

The classic arcade game is back in a supercharged version! For beginners or veterans, Tetraminos offers an easy-to-learn, limitless challenge.

· The Puzzle mode boasts 50 levels to give your brain a workout.

· The Endless mode will challenge you on both surviving and scoring – how much risk are you willing to take to rack up the combos and same-color lines?

· The local Versus mode, with up to 4 players, will have you challenge your friends and sabotage their boards in wild games.

Tetraminos is Sanuk Games’ third release on Wii U, after “Spot The Differences – Party!” and “Bombing Bastards”. Like its two predecessors, it offers a contemporary, state-of-the-art rendition of a classic gameplay.

It will be followed by three more classic games in the upcoming months: Brick Breaker, Mahjong and Solitaire.

Renegade Kid closes, co-founders continue with their own studios

This comes from a PR email given to NintendoLife...

Renegade Kid has announced that its co-founders, Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove, have made the difficult decision to bring their 10-year partnership of developing games together as Renegade Kid LLC to an end.

With their friendship and respect for each other still very much intact, Watsham and Hargrove will continue developing videogames under the names of their new companies: Atooi and Infitizmo.

The award-winning library of Intellectual Properties that Renegade Kid has created over the past decade will be finding new homes. All of Renegade Kid's "2D" games, including the Mutant Mudds series and Treasurenauts, will become the property of Atooi. All of Renegade Kid's "3D" games, including the Dementium series and Moon Chronicles, will become the property of Infitizmo.

We hope you will share in the excitement that both Jools and Gregg feel for their new journeys. You can follow their progress on twitter: @AtooiLLC and @InfitizmoLLC.
