As the generation winds down and the next consoles are on the horizon, the gaming world drifts further away from the generations of old. Thus it comes as some surprise that two older consoles will be getting some retro fitted love.
Shakedown: Hawaii will be coming to the Wii and Wii U soon. Unable to be a digital revival on older systems, the game is getting a physical release on both.
Shakedown: Hawaii will release on the Wii on July 9 and the Wii U later in August. The Wii port will only see release in Europe while the Wii U port will receive a wider release. Only 3,000 copies will be printed of the Wii version, so those wanting a strange piece of gaming history will need to act fast. These releases will include all post-release updates.
Shakedown: Hawaii has already made its debut on the Nintendo Switch alongside the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS and PC via the Epic Games Store. A Steam release will be coming soon according to developer Vblank Entertainment.
Shakedown: Hawaii may be the final sendoff to Nintendo’s previous generations. With the Wii coming out 14 years ago and the Wii U eight year ago, there is definitely a beautiful oddity in this release. It was last year that Just Dance 2020 was thought to be the last lingering holdout for the Wii, Nintendo’s seventh generation console.
The announcement of Shakedown: Hawaii coincides with the recent development of the Wii’s source code leaking online. It was part of a wider leak of Nintendo data that brought a lot of attention to Nintendo’s previous hardware and games.
Shakedown: Hawaii is available now on on PlayStation 4, PlayStaion Vita, Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and PC.
