No, you read that right.
Nintendo are flying high right now with their hybrid Switch console. It’s quite the leap from their last home console, the Wii U. That system will most likely go down in history as the company’s greatest failure, being one-upped by only the Virtual Boy. The company abandoned the platform pretty quickly- but it seems it could get one more notable title in Shakedown: Hawaii.
Shakedown is a game that plays much like the Grant Theft Auto series in its retro days, with a top-dow perspective for a modern open world crime thriller (though the game’s creator says it’s not directly inspired by those titles). A recent ESRB rating seems to point to a potential Wii U release, which is just… something. To be fair, the game also released on the PS Vita and the 3DS well after those systems’ shelf lives were long past their prime, so maybe it’s not that odd, all things considered.
Shakedown: Hawaii is available now on PlayStation 4, Switch, PC, Vita, and 3DS. Nothing officially has been announced about this Wii U version as of yet. But get your ‘what year is this’ gifs ready for when the announcement comes.
