A new game called Dolphin Up is heading to the Wii U eShop soon. There’s currently no estimated release date, but the developer has stated that he is aiming for the game to be released in September. The aim of the game is to perform amazing tricks as a porpoise. Successfully completing tricks like flips, spins and tailslides will allow you to build speed and jump higher, eventually launching you into space to perform the ultimate trick combo.

The game will launch with leaderboards, so competing with friends to get the highest score will likely be a draw for the game. It’s a game with a simple premise, but the graphics are clean and depending on how the controls handle, it could end up being a challenging game similar to OlliOlli that released on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 earlier this year.

    I thought you were talking about the Dolpin emulator and I was like, maaaaaan.

  • anthony optimo

    Ecco HD, although I see the porpoise in the game…

    • It does remind me a lot of Ecco the dolphin, but half the fun in that game was trying to do tricks when the stupid puzzles were too hard. 🙂

      • anthony optimo

        I’m certain I never made it past the second level in Ecco, I had a whale of a problem with the puzzles myself.

      • chris

        The DC one had me scratching my head just as much

  • brian

    No. Leave this garbage on smartphone stores.

    • WiiUltra

      This is a new version of Dolphin Olympics 2 (a web browser game), I know because I played it 8 years ago when it was released

  • BarbieOnWeed

    Don´t max out the Wii U hardware. This looks like shit! A new low.

  • Ducked

    Looks like Ecco the dolphin

  • Ace J

    It seems like indie games are the only games coming out for the Wii u. Besides Mario Kart, I can’t remember the last time I went to GameStop and bought a Wii u game.

    • anthony optimo

      GameStop is trash.

      • Ace J

        Who cares?

        • PS4WiiURocks

          Same with the PS4..But next month will be awesome i hope

          • Ace J

            Sorry man, but I’m going to have to disagree with you. I literally just got back from GameStop and got Diablo III, a few weeks I got the last of us. A month before that I got watch dogs and before that was Infamous.

          • PS4WiiURocks

            I disagree all those games have been out before and are re releases except for Watch dogs and Infamous and they have been out awhile but i have ISS but they others i do not but am planing to get all of the except for watchdogs. Ubi burned me to many times

        • anthony optimo

          You’re right. My bad.

    • chris

      Summer drought is nothing new. Have you seen their fall and winter lineup?

  • Dominicruz

    Oohh come on I thought it was the emulator 🙁

    • Shota

      why would you want dolphi n emulator when there is nintendont

  • josealbern

    Hasn’t anyone noticed this is just a slightly revamped version of dolphin olympics 2 whcih you can play for free on the Internet

    • Gootube Suck Ass

      LOL. Now that you mention it, this is like a free browser game XD.

  • Gootube Suck Ass

    WTF is this shit ? Is this some kind of a joke ???

  • Galanosgladius

    Very flash game-y

  • thejam216

    Was gonna say exactly the same thing josealbern! :p it is basically dolphin Olympics 2


    What a horrible game and looks worse like any cellphone games… Dont bring it on eshop!

  • PS4WiiURocks

    Looks cool

  • majora :D

    no offense intended, but this looks like a game more suit for iOS or Android

    • Gregg

      IOS is LOADED with cool games of all kinds. The library crushes all consoles. Consoles need to get in on these games to stay relevant in a changing industry

  • palomino blue

    How Tony Hawk of you.

  • Richard Branches

    oh my god, this is crap!! what is nintendo thinking? this is getting worse!! the wii u is full of crappy games except for nintendo games everything else is just crap!!!

    • Gregg

      You played it?

      • Richard Branches

        No but it’s not neccesary just by looking at that silly video…

  • I think Nintendo should be a little more strict with their eShop games.

  • ActivesiN

    another trash cellphone style game coming to the Wii U….Nintendo needs to crack down on this shit

  • Shootdatrupee!…

    Nintendo quality control at work…

  • FutureFox

    Stop the madness!

  • realist


  • gamingpalooza

    come on… this is not a real game.. this is embarrassing as a nintendo gamer.

  • Potemkin

    this…is free right?

  • chris

    Where’s Ecco when you need him?

  • Gregg

    Cool. Nice to have more smaller games coming to consoles, especially Wii U


    It’s like a side scrolling Tony Hawks Pro Skater with all the fun stuff taken out
