European Wii U release is a go!

Hey cool backers! 

STARWHAL is out in Europe on Wii U eShop today! We just sent out the download keys for those who were to receive a copy. However, we're currently still working on a Wii U release in Australia, so those from the land down under will have to sit tight a bit longer!

Of course we're also working on finishing up the Xbox One release as well. We're nearing the very final stages of submission with Microsoft, so hopefully not much longer on that front.

Thanks again, everyone!

Hey everybody! 

STARWHAL is out on Wii U in North America today. How cool is that!? It's thanks to your support that we could make it this far. 

Just a word for those waiting for Wii U download codes: we are still waiting on them from Nintendo, but the moment we get them they'll be sent out! If everything goes well it should be very soon. Thanks for sitting tight!

Hey everybody! STARWHAL now has a Wii U release date for North America - it will be live on September 24th! 

As we said previously, the game has an exclusive new multiplayer mode. It also supports Wii Remotes and Wii U Pro Controllers. 

We'll be working with Nintendo to try and get Wii U keys for backers who are owed one. And while we don't have a final word on the European release, it's super close and we'll give you an update as soon as we know!

How exciting, right?? Thank you for patience on this. We love you all <3

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!
