Today’s Nintendo eShop news: a release date and a trailer for the long-awaited forma.8, but also…
- David Wise
- Ackk Studios
- Circle Ent.
- Super Destronaut 3D
- Shakedown Hawaii
Yesterday, Mixed Bag Games finally announced the release date for their Metroidvania, forma.8. It has been a long time in the making, but the game is finally ready, and will be released on February 23rd in Europe and North America. As mentioned previously, the New Nintendo 3DS version will follow at a later date.
Here’s the launch trailer for forma.8:
The Upcoming Releases page has been updated!
Earlier this week, The Soudn Architect published an interview with the one and only David Wise. It goes over various topics, starting with David Wise’s musical career, his approach for each game he composes for, how composing for Yooka-Laylee has been, and much more. Click here to check it out!
Plantera was released on Wednesday in Japan, but not in Europe and North America. The good news is, there’s not much longer to wait, as both versions (Wii U and Nintendo 3DS) will be released next week, on February 9th. Even better: the game will be cross-buy!

It’s been a while since we last heard about Chromophore and YIIK. With the Nintendo Switch coming soon, it’s easy to believe that they’ve been moved to that console, but it’s not the case: earlier this week, Ackk Studios confirmed that both games were still coming to Wii U, though they didn’t specify when exactly.
Earlier this week, Circle Ent. shared screenshots of the title screen of two of their upcoming games for the Nintendo 3DS:
