Today, it was announced that Kick and Fennick would be released on June 2nd on Wii U. For those who don’t know, it’s physic-based platform, in which you control Kick.

Climb all the way to the top of the city’s tallest building, in order to find a new energy core for his robot friend.

The game features:

  • 45 levels
  • intricate and delightfully chaotic levels
  • highly-detailed animations
  • a cinematic camera system that dynamically follows all of the action
  • ochallenging platforming adventures and puzzles
  • and more…

Head after the break for the rest of this post!


Earlier today, Joachim from Noowanda Games posted another message on Miiverse about the upcoming update for Discovery. He explained that he was currently busy fixing bugs, which appeared during the beta phase (even though some of them are already in the released version).  The thing is, the game is coming to Japan later this year, and both him and the publisher want it to be as stable and bug-free as possible.

As you can imagine, it’s a pretty frustrating process, especially with fans waiting for the update. That being said, it looks like he’s almost done with bug fixing, and the game could be submitted by the end of next week (which would give a mid-June release in Japan).

Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge

Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge came out last week in Europe and North America, but it’s only yesterday that Nintendo of America uploaded its launch trailer.

Here it is:

Reminder: the game is available for free from the Nintendo eShop, but you need amiibo to play. That includes amiibo of specific characters (such as Mario, Peach, Donkey Kong, or even Bowser), required to unlock levels.

Heads up for European players: the update for FreezeMe is now available for download. It was originally supposed to come out yesterday, but it looks a last-minute delay crashed the party. It requires 861MB of free space on your Wii U or external HDD.

Thanks NintendoIpactGaming for the heads up.
