Wait, does that mean the world is going to end in 2012 ?
We all dead. But I'll play this while I wait for the purge.

Wasn't WiiWare a dead service? At this point, it may have just been wiser to release it on a more competent digital platform.
It's on PC. But it was already done for WiiWare so why not release it.

Ugh, I should have just waited for this game! I downloaded that Playism version, but I've barely played it. I don't really enjoy playing games on my PC so maybe this time I'll actually spend more time with it.

Is Nicalis involved with this release at all?
Well, they'll probably get a credit and some of the money for funding the port in the first place. That said, it seems that a small publisher is taking a gamble, presumably in the hope that it'll be one of the first big downloadable titles for the WiiU shop, assuming Nintendo replicates with what they did with DSiware and made the previous generation's download-only games available day one on the next generation's service.

They could've just waited a little and release it on Wii U's eshop.
If it's like eShop is to DSiWare's, the entire Wiiware library will be brought over and integrated into the WiiU's new shop. So they can release it early for Wii and it'll still be near the top of the charts and recommendations on Wii U.

Europe, Europe, release it here as well.

EDIT: just researched a bit. EnjoyUp Games are the publisher for US, and they already published at least one other game in Europe. So dance dance dance unless they forget about releasing it here too.

Having never played the original version, I decided to just wait for the WiiWare version. When it seemed the Wiiware version was never coming out in EU/US, I got the PC version when that was released. I played the game for a while and then decided it's not a game I enjoy playing. It doesn't feel like a Metroidvania, but more like a sadistically challenging puzzle game.
I feel sorry for the unwary souls, especially kids, who will be lured by the charming and cute retro graphics and will buy this game not knowing what they're getting into.

are you sure? I think I remember something about that but my brain needs more recent confirmation
Yes, all Wii stuff (incl. saves, and previously purchased games) transfers over to Wii U. It's been confirmed at or around E3 in an interview.

Is this just for NA, or will it come to Europe too?
Europe, Europe, release it here as well.

EDIT: just researched a bit. EnjoyUp Games are the publisher for US, and they already published at least one other game in Europe. So dance dance dance unless they forget about releasing it here too.
I sent them a tweet a few hours ago asking if there's a chance for them putting it out in EU as well. Still waiting for a reply.

Enjoy Up?

The Chronos Twin people, right?
Yes, correct.

Now I'm pissed off that my Wii decided to stop connecting to my home network for whatever reason last week. Now would be a good time for NOA to rub it in my face even further by releasing Earthbound and Yoshi's Island on the Virtual Console.

I'll be sure to buy this as soon as I get the chance.

Not buying anything digital for Wii anymore, so I'll look into this whenever I get a WiiU.

Glad to see it's finally coming out, even though I know next to nothing about this game and will be going in 100% blind :p
