Double Fine’s The Cave Officially Confirmed for Wii U
During its demonstration at last week’s PAX Prime expo, developer Double Fine Productions confirmed that its stylish new platformer, The Cave, which was originally announced for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, will also be heading to Nintendo’s next home console.
While no further details on the game were divulged, it’s nevertheless encouraging to see another high-profile third-party release, particularly a digital one, added to the console’s growing library. The Cave is slated to hit the aforementioned platforms in early 2013.
Square Enix to Reveal Dragon Quest X Wii U Details at Tokyo Game Show
Since Square Enix announced that its upcoming MMO, Dragon Quest X, would be a dual platform release, the developer has been uncharacteristically mum about the Wii U version of the game. It seems all that’s about the change, however, as the company has revealed that it will be discussing the title during its Tokyo Game Show presentation.
Dragon Quest X marks the Dragon Quest series’ first foray into the world of online multiplayer. Its immediate predecessor, Dragon Quest IX, briefly flirted with the idea by adding some MMO-like elements– not to mention local wireless co-op– into its design, but the upcoming Wii/Wii U title will be the first time it full-on makes out with the genre, to continue the awkward metaphor.
This year’s Tokyo Game Show is scheduled to begin on September 20. Here’s hoping it’s a little more exciting than Square’s other recent revelation.
“Wapeach” Was Almost in Mario Tennis
After the debut of the devilishly handsome Waluigi, many Nintendo fans had joked about which Mario character would be the next one to receive a creepy doppelganger. Most, of course, were quick to point to Princess Peach, likely because of how fetching she would look with an unkempt mustache, but what they may not realize is just how close that actually was to becoming reality.
According to the gaming trivia website Did You Know Gaming?, Nintendo was originally considering adding a “Wapeach” to the Nintendo 64 Mario Tennis (though not necessarily under that name). Thankfully, Miyamoto stepped in with his tea table-upending powers and put a stop to that. Just imagine how much more disturbing the Mario universe would be right now if it weren’t for him.
