Wii U release imminent!

Posted by Snowcastle Games (Creator)

Dear backers, 

In This Update: 

  • Wii U release imminent! 
  • Japanese Publishing deal 
  • Nintendo Switch version 

Wii U release imminent! 

We are very happy to announce that we have passed certification and the game is scheduled for Wii U launch on: 

We had some snags with the US version, though still in the certification process, the title has been approved and moved on to release preparations as we speak. If everything go as planned (and we don’t see any issues with the delivery as is at this point) the US version should be visible and ready for download on the 14th September. 

We will be sending out Wii U keys soon, so make sure that you have updated your BackerKit Survey (link). All who have ordered the game for Wii U still has a chance to update that order. Many people have replaced their Wii U with another console like the Switch.

It has taken a lot longer than anticipated, but we were dead set on keeping our promise to our Kickstarter backers.

So, from all of us to all of you, we sincerely hope you enjoy the journey through Umbra!

Japanese Publishing Deal

We are very happy to announce that Cross Function will be helping us publish Earthlock in the Japanese market digitally (no physical launch there).

We will be going over to Tokyo Game Show on September 20th to 24th to show off the Japanese version.

Switch Version? 

At this time we can’t say much more than earlier, but keep an eye out for announcements from Cross Function during Tokyo Game Show!

Best regards,
Snowcastle Games

      Hi. Still haven't received any European Wii U key.
      When will you ship them out?
      It says that my backerkit survey is not locked down, from you guys. Does that have anything to do with it?

      I already changed my key for Nintendo Switch. Hope it gets released on the new platform even if I have to wait a bit more. Thanks for working hard on it!!!

      Wonderful! You'll go down in my memory as one of the only Kickstarter developers I backed who delivered on this goal. It is much appreciated.

      In the last update you wrote:
      "If and when we release a Switch version we have decided that all Wii U backers will get both. So feel free to get your Wii U version as soon as it arrives!"

      So, I will be sticking with the Wii U version.

      Thank you so much for sticking up for us Wii U owners. This means whole lot to me and I'm sure many many more. You have earned my loyalty big time!

      Awesome~! nOn Thanks!

      Thanks for the update! Really great seeing you're still committed to the Wii U version! I played the game when it came out on Games with Gold for the XB1, so I've been holding off on using my Kickstarter Redemption for the Earthlock 2; that being said, the Switch is my new favorite system! Hoping that the 2nd game comes straight to the Switch. ^_^

    17. Ian Hsieh on

      I'm torn. I love my Wii U but I'm getting my Switch soon.
      I might just switch to Switch version/
