VBlank Entertainment came out with a surprise announcement – Shakedown Hawaii is coming physically to Wii and Wii U in 2020.
Shakedown Hawaii for Wii will go on sale on July 9, 2020 at 1pm EST for USD29.99. It will be limited to 3000 copies on the Vblank site. As for the Wii U physical release, it’ll go on sale in August 2020.
Coming to a Wii near U!
Shakedown: Hawaii will be seeing two new physical releases this summer. A European Wii version, and a North American Wii U version!
Shakedown: Hawaii’s Wii and Wii U versions include all of the currently released content and feature updates, including the Mogul Update, the Full Tank Update, and the many other little tweaks, improvements and optimizations that went into the game post-launch.
Although Wii and Wii U games aren’t region-free, the Wii version does support both 50hz and 60hz, and NTSC and PAL video output. It supports the Wii Remote (with shake!), Wii Classic Controller, Wii Classic Controller Pro, and GameCube Controller. I took special care to ensure it parallels the experience of the more powerful platforms, and further optimized it to fit entirely into the Wii system memory. This means that you won’t experience any disc load times during gameplay. Once the game boots, you’re in!
The Wii U version supports both SD and HD, 4:3 and 16:9. You can play it with the Wii U GamePad, Wii U Pro Controller, Wii Remote, Wii Classic Controller, or Wii Classic Controller Pro. It can be played entirely on the GamePad (with touch!), or on the TV from the comfort of your couch.
Both versions will also allow you to experience the game in the most retro way possible… in 4:3 on your old CRT televisions… and in my opinion, it looks glorious!
