Both North American releases from Diplodocus Games on the Wii U were delisted in August of 2020. These include Regina & Mac and Sudoku and Permudoku. The studio announced the upcoming delistings in a pair of tweets posted on July 21st, 2020.
Unfortunately, our games will be removed from America’s Wii U eShop in August. This also means that we cannot publish the planned update for Regina & Mac for American Wii U owners. As a little apology and thank you for your support, all Regina & Mac owners in America can download our first game, Sudoku & Permudoku free of charge starting from 28th July 9AM PDT. We will continue to work on games, but not for the American Wii U eShop.
Although unsubstantiated, our site has heard from small Wii U studios over the years that Nintendo of America has refused to renew certain developer/publisher licenses for the platform. Diplodocus’ statement doesn’t confirm this but their wording implies that the delistings were not their choice. As further evidence, both titles remain available on the Australian and European Wii U eShop as of this writing. Dipoldocus has gone on to release updated versions of most of their titles on the Nintendo Switch in North America.
About the Game
Join the macaw Regina and the tyrannosaurus Mac on their adventure as they try to escape a lifeless research lab. The only way out? To find the golden Floppy discs on which the memory of the lab’s computer system U64 is stored so that it can help the duo to find an exit. Regina & Mac is a 3D platformer that stands in the tradition of the classics from the late 90s and offers a fair challenge even for genre aficionados.
- Venture through nine expansive, yet compact worlds with ten golden Floppies each.
- Tackle the tasks in your order. You are free to explore the lab and its levels and choose the order in which you want to collect the Floppies.
- Exploration, Platforming and Puzzle solving await.
- An ever-expanding move set keeps the experience fresh from start to finish.
- Featuring visuals reminiscent of the early 3D days at 60 frames per seconds. Relive the atmosphere of yesteryear without sacrificing comfort.
