Nintendo is bringing some of their unique Wii games to Wii U in the next few weeks starting with Zangeki no Reginleiv. Developed by Earth Defense Force creators Sandlot, the game makes use of Wii MotionPlus to slash limbs off giants.
The game feels like a mix of their bug blasting series with Norse mythology and in the original release an online multiplayer mode where you can farm for better gear. Since Nintendo shut down online services for Wii the online mode no longer works. Zangeki no Reginleiv will get a digital release today and on Amazon Japan you can get a code to download the game for 1,700 yen instead of the usual 2,700 yen price.
Pandora’s Tower is due on March 4. While Nintendo released the RPG in Europe and Japan, Xseed brought the game to North America. So far, only Nintendo’s lineup of Wii games has been re-released for Wii U. Sin & Punishment: Star Successor, an awesome on-rails shooter from Treasure, is slated for Japan on March 25.
