Shakedown: Hawaii gets a Wii U ESRB rating

It's a Wii U shakedown!

In recent weeks, it seems like a number of developers are out to make a name for themselves as the creator who released the last game for Wii U. We thought it was going to be the person behind Regina & Mac, but now it looks like Vblank is going to earn that record. A Wii U ESRB rating for Shakedown: Hawaii has just popped up, which means the game should be hitting Wii U in the near future!

Beta64 takes a look at the early days of Splatoon's development

A game about bunnies

Before Splatoon released for Wii U, the game went through all sorts of testing and changes, as most games do. If the original idea for Splatoon saw release on Wii U, things would have been quite different, especially when it comes to characters! Check out the video above to see how Splatoon got its start, and learn about the many changes that took place prior to release.

Thanks to ibbsters for the heads up!

Nintendo Minute - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: 20 Challenges in 20 Minutes

Got a minute?

Nintendo Minute is never a minute! Happy New Year everyone. We’re so excited to be back with the first Nintendo Minute video of 2020. We thought it would be fun to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and see if we can complete 20 challenges in the game in 20 minutes. We didn’t want to fail at the first video of the year so we tried really hard. How do you think we did? As always, thanks so much for watching. We’re so excited for this year! Can’t wait to share it all with you.

First 4 Figures working with the Darksiders franchise

Face the darkness

First 4 Figures has revealed a new license that they'll be working with this year. The company has secured a deal with THQ to creature figures based on the Darksiders franchise. No specific details were shared on what figures to expect yet, but I'm sure we'll hear something as we get further into 2020.

Regina & Mac - more footage

Join the macaw Regina and the tyrannosaurus Mac on their adventure as they try to escape a lifeless research lab. The only way out? To find the golden Floppy discs on which the memory of the lab’s computer system U64 is stored so that it can help the duo to find an exit. Regina & Mac is a 3D platformer that stands in the tradition of the classics from the late 90s and offers a fair challenge even for genre aficionados.

Dying is Dangerous - Wii U gameplay

"Dying is Dangerous" is a memory game set in a horrific and dangerous world. Observe and remember the traps or... die!

Dragon Quest X 'Version 5.1' intro video

All sorts of fun in Version 5.1

Dragon Quest X is getting a major Version 5.1 update on Jan. 29th, 2020. We went over the details for that update a few days back, but now we have a trailer to showcase what's to come. See everything Version 5.1 has to offer in the video intro above.

The official website for Pikmin 3 has disappeared

Couldn't have picked a better time

There have been rumors swirling about Pikmin 3 getting a port from Wii U to Switch, and today we get a bit more fuel for the rumor fire. The official website for Pikmin 3 has up and vanished. If you try to visit the site today, you'll get redirected to the Nintendo.com listing for Pikmin 3.

Why did the official site disappear after all these years? It seems a little too coincidental that the site was yanked now while all the rumors of a port are flying about. Let's hope this does indeed point to a port of Pikmin 3 to Switch. More Pikmin is never a bad thing!

Dragon Quest X - game updated to version 5.1

Dragon Quest X, the MMORPG available on Wii U and Nintendo Switch in Japan, has been updated to version 5.1.0. There have huge changes made, which were translated by Japanese Nintendo and BlackKite. There are new locales, characters and a whole bunch of features. A fun surprise is Great Demon King Madesagora's grandson, Peperogora, who is more much an artist than a ruler.
