Wii U eShop release schedule - Runner2, Mutant Mudds and The Cave coming soon

What are you going to download?

Runner2 is the highlight of the new Wii U eShop release schedule. It will be joined in Nintendo's digital store by Mutant Mudds Deluxe and The Cave during the first quarter of 2013.

Bit.Trip Runner is one of our best WiiWare games so it's good to see CommanderVideo returning to our screens during the first quarter of 2013 in Bit.Trip Presents... Runner2.

Mutant Mudds Deluxe is the Wii U version of Mutant Mudds, Renegade Kid's retro platformer that came to the 3DS eShop earlier this year.

As for The Cave, that's the new point and click game from Ron Gilbert who made the Monkey Island games.

Here's the Wii U eShop release schedule. This only covers games that are only available to download from the eShop. You'd expect some retail games to come to the digital store, too.

  • Toki Tori 2 (Two Tribes): 20 December
  • Zen Pinball 2 (Zen Studios): TBC December
  • Bit.Trip Presents... Runner 2: Future Legend of
  • Rhythm Alien (Gaijin Games): Quarter 1 2013
  • Mutant Mudds Deluxe (Renegade Kid): Quarter 1 2013
  • The Cave (Sega): Quarter 1 2013

    I hadn't heard of a Wii U edition of Mutant Mudds. Do we know if it's a remake of the 3DS game like Mighty Switch Force, or an entirely new and bigger game.

    I'm a big Ron Gilbert fan, loved the monkey Island series and both Maniac Mansion games so I've been pumped for The Cave for months now.
