Nintendo World Report has the first look at STARWHAL on Wii U, including the exclusive 5 player "Blastopus Mode". 

Included is a trailer for this new mode, showing a GamePad player dropping bombs on the unsuspecting starwhal players on the tv screen. Starwhals, try to dodge the barrage until the timer ends and emerge victorious!

As a bonus, we can announce we've sent our first submission to Nintendo of America to see if it's ready for prime time. Hopefully not much longer now! We'll keep you all posted.

Upcoming Wii U and Xbox Versions!

4 likes

Hey everyone!  

It's been a very busy time over at Breakfall! We’ve been super hard at work on finishing up STARWHAL for Wii U and, as we can finally start talking about, for Xbox One as well! Both versions of the game are getting very close and we’re almost about ready to put a bow on them and give them to Nintendo and Microsoft respectively. We expect the Wii U version to release in about 2-3 months and the Xbox One version shortly after that. Fingers are crossed for a smooth release!

The Wii U version of the game has a brand new multiplayer mode built especially for the system that uses one player on the tablet and others on the television with Wii Remotes or Wii U Pro controllers. We’ll be sending out more information on that soon. We have to say - it feels great to play this game with Wii Remotes, as most people have some lying around already!

Thanks so much for all your continued patience, especially for the Wii U version. It’s been an enormous challenge for us and it’s almost out there. Have a great summer!

STARWHAL Store Localization Help

Hey backers,

We're looking to bring STARWHAL to new territories and we thought we'd ask your help for that. For certain territories we need to provide translations on the game's description. If there are any fans that can help us out it would be a massive save for our little team. Here is the link to the form to submit translations for the game in some of the languages we didn't have access to.

Thanks so much for your time and a huge thanks to anybody who submits a language!

STARWHAL is out on Playstation!

Hey cool backer-folk! Guess what? STARWHAL is now out on Playstation 3 & 4 in Canada, US, and many European territories. Hooray! It was a long time coming and we couldn't have made it this far without your feedback and support. 

Here is where you can find it on the US Store.

The game supports cross-buy, so if you buy it on either platform (PS3 or PS4) you get the other version for free. Here is a post we made on the Official Playstation Blog that has even more details. 

Next we're working on the Wii U version and hopefully some other developments we can share with you soon. Oooo exciting!
