Okay, we’ll stop speculating about when the final Wii U game will hit us. Every time we address it, another one creeps in. We love seeing this underrated console get some love, so we’ll be screaming about any new games we discover on the horizon.
April 2022 will become official Wii U Revival Month as Cragworks releases Reversi 32 on April 28th. Well, this is a version of the classic strategy board game Reversi that you can play on your GamePad, but it’s actually been in development for quite a long time.
Cragworks is responsible for creating BLOC, another puzzle game where all the action takes place on your GamePad. Reversi 32 was announced back in 2015 and Cragworks has stayed true to its word and managed to get the game out there.
Here’s an overview of the upcoming Wii U release straight from the eShop:
Play Reversi (32 Piece Style) on the Wii U GamePad against a friend or Bigley.
1) Clear the board (stones fall off and the game resets) by pressing the d-pad
2) Touch the screen to add a track
3) Board builder: create your own starting boards with walls/pieces, decide which color comes first and choose whether pieces can be placed anywhere or not, like traditional Reversi
4) 32 slots for custom boards
5) Options: show result, 100/200% speed, show future moves, turn music on/off, time limit for one move, end game when player has no more moves
6) 4 Bigley CG cutscenes (win, lose, draw and ~40 sec intro movie)
7) For 1 – 2 players: Play alone against Bigley or locally against a friend by taking turns touching the same Wii U GamePad
If you recognize the Bigley name, you’ll grow old like us. Bigley was a meme created in response to Sakurai’s dismissal of ever bringing Ridley in smash bros. because he is too big. Well, uh, that hasn’t aged well now, has it? But that hurt at the time, so Miiverse user TheLink551 posted a drawing on the old messaging system parodying this, and that’s how Bigley gained momentum. Don’t you believe us? Look at it.
Bigley even got his own game, Bigley’s Revenge, in 2016. And the less we say about it, the better.
Reversi 32 will be available on the Wii U eShop on April 28th and will cost just £8.19. A bargain, we say! So if you still have your Wii U, get Reversi 32? Let us know and show your Wii U love in the comments.
