In an unsurprising turn of events, Developers ConcernedApe and Nicalis have pulled out for developing Stardew Valley and the upcoming DLC for The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.
This is what ConcernedApe had to say on the matter:
“Stardew Valley will not be coming to the Wii U, however. Looking at Wii U and the current gaming landscape, we made the difficult choice to shift our development efforts to creating a version for Nintendo Switch. I am really looking forward to the Switch, and I believe that the Switch’s unique capabilities could create some exciting opportunities for Stardew Valley. I do want to emphasize that I am absolutely committed to seeing Stardew Valley on Nintendo platforms, and I really do appreciate your support and understanding in this.”
It is understandable, With Nintendo confiming that they are pulling the plug on further Wii U software development and discontinuing Hardware distribution, indie developers has little choice but to follow suit.
However, as regards to the DLC, Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth+ not coming to Wii U, it does seem a little odd but then again it’s not the first time a 3rd party game didn’t receive DLC on the Wii U, Ubisoft did the same with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black flag. It will be interesting to see if Nicalis release the game along with the DLC or whether it will have to be downloaded separately, only time will tell.

Hi Guys & Girls, Mike Scorpio Here! Sorry I have not been around very much, I have been working on a new series of videos called NES Classic Gameplays for our YouTube Channel.

Each Video is uploaded everyday at 1:00pm GMT and has started on November 25th. With 30 games on the NES Classic, that means there will be 30 videos in total leading us straight into Christmas time. All videos are in alphabetical order which will hopefully give you an idea of when you can expect a particular game you are interesed in. Hoping for Super Mario? That might be a couple of weeks yet, Looking for some Double Dragon action? You can expect that sometime this week.
I hope you all enjoy these videos and you can check them out as they are uploaded via our YouTube Playlist or even right here! Be sure to subscribe to our channel to help support us further and slide the alerts toggle to ON so you never miss a video!

Apparently, Niantic Labs is reported to be planning a huge Pokémon Go update sometime in December that will finally give players what they’ve been asking for since the release of the App, Trainer Battles and Trading .
It is also rumoured that the update will also include more than 100 new Pokémon, both normal and legendary, and will also be able to raise your Pokémon Tamagotchi style, after the eggs hatch. This information was found via an analysis of Pokémon Go’s code by people associated with web scanner PokeVS. If this turns out to be true than Pokémon Go could be making an impressive comeback during the holiday season (Wrap up warm kids!). Mew & Mewtwo are among the Legendary Pokémon that are due to make an appearance in the game.
What do you think about this rumor becoming true? Do you think its great for the long awaited trading and trainer battles to finally come to the gae or do you think it is too little, too late? Let us know in the comments below!
