FAST Racing Neo
Today, Shin’en Multimedia released an update for FAST Racing Neo on Wii U. All the update seems to do is fix the issue with DLC. Before, if you bought the DLC, it would be locked after restarting the game. The only way to get it to unlock was to visit the Nintendo eShop again.
Right now, the update is only available in Europe, but it should be released in Japan and North America pretty soon.
On Friday, Keiji Yamagishi revealed on Twitter that he composed the atmospheric music for Exile’s End. This action/aventure game will be released later down the line on Wii U.
