Yooka-Laylee Gets Physical (and in shelves) This Spring

The game that broke records of records on Kickstarter, Yooka-Laylee was the mighty one to do it all. With heads up higher than ever with it’s multi-platform release for Q1, the game has now been elevated to a even higher release expectation.

Playtonic Games has confirmed that Yooka-Laylee will get a physical release alongside the release of the digital version. Allowing Kickstarter’s to even have the option to change their digital to a physical version will also be an option.

We’re delighted to be able to offer Yooka-Laylee in both digital and boxed flavours in time for the game’s launch in Q1 2017. As we speak, our business badgers are busily burrowing away on an initiative that will allow Kickstarter backers to upgrade their digital pledge to a physical version, if they choose to do so. We’re not ready to share the exact details just yet, but very soon you should be able to stick your head in the badger hole and look for yourself.


Confirmed via a blog post on the Playtonic Games website, the option of whether to go digital or physical is really up to you. Will you be picking up Yooka-Laylee digitally or physically?

 

Nostalgia! Fans Make 13 Years of Nintendo Power Scans Available For Everybody To Enjoy

Now your playing with power.

Nintendo Power, the official Nintendo magazine here in the United States, was dear to many people. It all started with Issue 1 (seen above) with a clay cover of Mario promoting Super Mario Bros. 2 with a free poster included.

For those of you didn’t get to experience Nintendo Power; or getting a magazine in general through the mail, it was a wonderful time where waiting anxiously for the mail man to deliver you the fresh print known as Nintendo Power. Within it, it would include all the news for upcoming games, impressions, reviews, and even a poster from time to time. As some one who had the chance to have Nintendo Power in their life, it’s great for fans to be able to read and glance at many publications of the writing issue per issue.

Nintendo 64 games coming soon to Wii U Virtual Console

*UPDATE*

It’s actually been confirmed since early 2013 that they would be on Wii U eShop, so sorry about the false alarm guys, I’ll try not to make the same mistake next time*

 

 

It now appears that Nintendo 64 games are finally making their way onto the Wii U eShop. Currently, if you want to play Nintendo 64 games, you have to go to Wii mode, making it very tedious and annoying. The latest rumor suggest that Nintendo 64 games are finally coming officially to the Wii U eShop.

Coming from the official Nintendo website, it was spotted that a little banter that proved that Nintendo does indeed plan on putting N64 games accessible without going into Wii mode. No details were given, apart from the possible confirmation of the games coming to the Wii U eShop.

N64 Wii U

It shouldn’t be surprising if this is true, as it does come from the official Nintendo website. It just seems that they may unintentionally released it by accident. Would you loved to play Nintendo 64 games on your Game Pad? Or would you want remastered games instead? Let us know in the comment section below.
