Wii U eShop
Puddle – Dive into Puddle, a game unlike any other where you have to guide a puddle of fluid by tilting the environment to the left or right!
Ikachan – Near the bottom of an enormous abyss, there’s only one way out. Swim in a dark world under attack by frequent earthquakes and famine. This vast undersea kingdom is filled with both dangerous and hamless denizens. Its fearful inhabitants are led by a reluctant fish who has no answer to the impending disasters.
Witch’s Cat – In the previous adventure, the Queen sent a large group of her precious minions, the Cheshire Cats, to find and capture Alice and Rabi. Shortly, after they were captured, one of the Queen’s minions, a Cheshire Cat named Alicia, became curious of Alice and instinctually knew that Alice was a good person. Alicia, unknown to Alice and Rabi, helped them both escape from their imprisonment.
Bloody Vampire – This is the story of Latis, a girl who is half-human, half-vampire, and her quest to discover why a vampire is invading the human world. This is a platformer type game with elements of an RPG. The player advances and collects money by defeating enemies and must explore to discover items used to increase abilities, such as magic and transformation.
Ice Climber – It’s only you and an ice hammer as you make your way to the top of the mountain!
Fire Emblem: Awakening (February 4) – In the visually stunning world of the Fire Emblem Awakening game, you command and fight alongside an army of spirited heroes standing against an enemy with the power to destroy empires; a dark dragon whose agents include armies of the undead. Plan your attack, customize your forces, and guide your heroes as you forge alliances that strengthen your resolve in battle and shape the course of history. Lead a team of distinct characters with unique abilities, rich backstories, and evolving relationships that guide the path of your quest. Plan your attack carefully – the lives of your soldiers and the future of the world depends on it.
99Moves – A retro arcade game where you will have to survive with just 99 Movements.
Wii Virtual Console
Metal Slug 4 – Metal Slug 4 is the fifth installment in the Metal Slug series. Choose from four different mercenaries and battle against the terrorist group “Amadeus”. Skillfully jump and shoot your way through enemies while picking up items to replenish your weapons. Like in the previous games, you can ride vehicles and fight rigorously against enemies. Furthermore, Metal Slug 4 introduces the all-new Metallish System, an interesting bonus scoring system that puts a new spin on things. Additionally, there are new items and characters, creating a fresh new take on the Metal Slug universe.
