Shakedown: Hawaii coming out on the Wii and the Wii U

Here’s something you don’t hear often these days: the announcement of a port for the Wii and the Wii U. But that’s exactly what Vblank Entertainment has done.

Open-world action game Shakedown: Hawaii, which launched in May 2019, will soon come out on the 14-year-old Wii and the eight-year-old Wii U – both on disc. Both versions include all of the currently released content and feature updates, designer Brian Provinciano said in a blog post, as well as the ability to play in 4:3 on your old CRT televisions.


The Wii version supports both 50hz and 60hz, and both NTSC and PAL output, and, brilliantly, 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 optimised it to fit entirely into the Wii system memory,” Provinciano explained.

“This means that you won’t experience any disc load times during gameplay. Once the game boots, you’re in!”

As for the Wii U, that 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.
