The Legend of Dark Witch is a 2d, action, platformer where you play as a dark witch named Zizou. The Legend of Dark Witch has similarities to Mega Man in that you can steal and use boss powers after defeating them. The ability to steal boss powers will undoubtedly be useful in your journey to collect the missing Syega Crystals. Also, you will be able to collect “Tres” that can be used to upgrade your abilities. In fact, it seems that this power-up system has been influenced by the classic shooter, Gradius.
The game promises to offer diverse, challenging levels, three difficulty modes, and additional bonuses for those that replay the game.
The Legend of Dark Witch will be released in North America on Thursday, October 16 for $3.99.
October 2014 brings us new featured game rewards over at Club Nintendo. Despite being October, Nintendo isn’t offering many horror-themed titles, though there are a few here that may be worthy of your coins.
My recommendations for this month are Kirby’s Dream Course and Donkey Kong.

Actos Games uploaded a trailer for psyscrolr on Friday, which showcases the game’s “psychic energy” gameplay mechanics, and intriguing pixel visuals.
psyscrolr is a platformer riddled with puzzles to be solved, most of which seem to take advantage of the main character’s psychic energy abilities, and a touch of combat for good measure. The game is being built to around the Wii U GamePad, which will be used for slash and psychic fireball attacks. psyscrolr also features a “disembodied voice” that will narrate the adventure.
psyscrolr is currently scheduled for a release this year and will be a Wii U eShop exclusive.
Two Tribes revealed RIVE at the end of July, but we were only told the game would be coming to consoles. Now, we can confirm that RIVE – the metal wrecking, enemy hacking shooter – will be coming to the Wii U. RIVE will also see release on Steam, PS4, and Xbox One, though only the Steam and Wii U versions are being developed by Two Tribes themselves.

Those looking for a Minecraft fix on the Wii U no longer have to worry as a clone has been announced for the console. This clone is known as U Craft and not much is known about the game at the moment, in fact, we don’t even know the developer.
Trailer Note: Doesn’t showcase Wii U gameplay, though should be similar.
Spy Chameleon: RGB Agent was just announced by EnjoyUp Games and Unfinished Pixel (the developer) for release on the Wii U. Presumably, the game will launch on the Nintendo eShop.
Spy Chameleon challenges you to complete missions by sneaking around using a color-changing mechanic that helps you blend in with the surroundings. There will be 75 levels of sneaking to be done with 3 challenges (beating times and collectibles) in each level, and achievements to be achieved. You can also speed your way through levels to challenge the online leaderboards.
No information on a release date as of right now, though we’ll be sure to announce it once it becomes available.
Shin’en is bringing their A game for the release of FAST Racing NEO. Not only does this game look fantastic for a Wii U game, but also for a digital title. While we believe it won’t become “the new F-Zero,” it certainly looks like the best F-Zero alternative to date. Enough of my blabbering, have a look at these gorgeous screenshots.
