Hot on the heels of last week’s double whammy of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE and Mario & Sonic: Rio 2016 comes another Wii U big hitter – LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
According to both Amazon and GAME, the physical release of TT Games’ latest blockbuster isn’t due out until 5th July, so those looking to take down Kylo Ren this week have just one option – go digital. It’s your only hope.
The eShop price has been set at £39.99, with a release date of 28th June. The 3DS version meanwhile will set you back £29.99. Although it’s likely to be a safe purchase, the Wii U LEGO games are known to be slightly more glitchy than on other formats. It’s also worth bearing in mind that the belated physical release can be pre-ordered for around a tenner less than its digital counterpart.
The Wii U also gets a surprise release of Ziggurat (£12.00), a first-person dungeon crawler that gained a cult following upon debut. The PS4 and Xbox One versions arrived to a mixture of 7s and 8s, and so unless something horrid has happened while en route to Wii U, we reckon it’ll be worth investigating.
Also on Wii U this week: physics-based puzzler Midnight 2 (£1.79), a demo of Runbow, Hyrule Warriors: Legends of Hyrule Pack (£8.99 for Wii U only season pass or £15.29 with 3DS season pass), Hyrule Warriors: Character Pack (£10.79), and the Hyrule Warriors: Link’s Awakening Pack (£4.49 or part of Legends of Hyrule Pack).
