    Still no word about D&D: Chronicles of Mystara? I’ve been holding out from purchasing on other devices just to have it on the Wii U…

    • multibottler0cket

      I forgot about that! I’m getting it as soon as it’s out!

  • Axle_Magnum

    Ducktales doesn’t come out until the 13th, though.

    • Dude

      Which the press release mentions…..

  • Cameron Ward

    yeah why advertise a game that wont be out until next week?

    • Jeff Neuenschwander

      Because Nintendo does press releases for this every Thursday (hence, why we do these articles every Thursday). It wouldn’t make sense for them to include the game on a press release after it has already been out for a couple of days.
      That said, I think we’ll be seeing some sort of launch trailer this coming Tuesday when the game releases.

  • Ross MacPherson

    $14.99 for DuckTales? I know the hype is big, but I’d be much more comfortable with $7.99 or maybe $9.99. :/

    • Gabriella Creighton

      It’s not a port, it’s a complete remaster.
