Australian indie developer Jerrel Dulay has announced that he’s bringing seven new titles to the Wii U and 3DS eShops this year – despite the fact that Nintendo is closing the digital storefronts for the two systems.
In a press release, Dulay states that the move was in response to the news of the closure, and “significant fan demand” for the games.
Here’s Dulay’s statement:
We have announced 7 new titles to launch exclusive on Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. What!? Why!? In response to Nintendo’s recent announcement of the end of eShop sales for Wii U and 3DS, and as a result of significant fan demand, we are bringing 7 final games to these consoles. Most of these titles were games we had in development for the Wii U and 3DS already, but either moved main development to the Switch or cancelled entirely. After some discussion with Nintendo, we organized bringing these titles back to the Wii U and 3DS as a way to celebrate those consoles and the eShop.
The seven games are:
- Silver Falls – White Inside Its Umbra (Wii U)
- Silver Falls – Gaiden (Wii U)
- Silver Falls – Undertakers (Wii U)
- Silver Falls – Guardians And Metal Exterminators (3DS)
- Silver Falls – Ghoul Busters (3DS)
- Silver Falls – Vicarious Brothers (3DS)
- Silver Falls – Gaiden Deathly Delusion Destroyers (3DS)
White Inside Its Umbra was shown off earlier this year and seeks to include Wii Balance Board support.
The Silver Falls series all take place within the same fictional town. There’s no solid release date (or pricing) for these games as yet, but Dulay states that the first should be released in Q2 2022.
