Shakedown: Hawaii Coming to Wii and Wii U in Summer 2020

Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U platforms will get a new game this summer: Shakedown: Hawaii, sequel to developer Vblank Entertainment 2019 for Retro City Rampage. Both versions will be released this summer, but as expected when a modern game is transferred to a nearly 14-year-old console, there is a catch.

Shakedown: Hawaii It will launch on Wii on July 9, with a limited run of 3,000 physical copies. The Wii port will also be limited to PAL territories; Apparently, Nintendo of Europe is still making Wii discs, but North American Wii owners have no luck, because Wii games are not region-free. That said, Wii collectors probably still want a copy. (The Wii digital store, the Wii Shop Channel, closed in 2019.)

Vblank says that, as a consolation to American gamers, it will also release a Wii U version of Shakedown: Hawaii in August. Here are some important technical details about the Wii and Wii U ports, from the developer’s website:

The Wii version supports 50hz and 60hz, and NTSC and PAL output. Supports Wii Remote (with smoothie!), Wii Classic Controller, Wii Classic Controller Pro and GameCube Controller. I paid special attention to ensure that it parallels the experience of the most powerful platforms, and further optimized it to fully accommodate the memory of the Wii system. This means that you will not experience any disk loading times during the game. Once the game starts, you are inside!

The Wii U version supports SD and HD, 4: 3 and 16: 9. You can play it with Wii U GamePad, Wii U Pro Controller, Wii Remote, Wii Classic Controller or Wii Classic Controller Pro. It can be played entirely on the GamePad (with touch!), or on TV from the comfort of your sofa.

The Wii version of Shakedown: Hawaii It will go on sale Thursday, July 9 at 1 pm ET / 10 am PT and will cost $ 29.99. The Wii U (and Steam) version will follow in August.

Shakedown: Hawaii It launched for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Windows PC in May 2019, with a Nintendo 3DS port coming in September 2019. The top-down action game is the follow-up to Retro City Rampage, a game that Similar is available on a wide variety of consoles, portable devices, and PCs, including MS-DOS.
