Shadow Archer Special released to commemorate the original Shadow Archer's 6th Anniversary

Unread post by DPadDoc Vatista »

On August 25th of 2022, devoted Nintendo enthusiast indie dev Ultra Dolphin Revolution released Shadow Archer Special, an upgraded version of Shadow Archer, an arcade-style overhead wave shooter game that was released back on the Wii U six years earlier. This release comes 8 months after Captain U, another game from the same developers that is a meta platformer that takes advantage of the Wii U Gamepad's functionalities that was thought to the last game released on the Wii U before a couple more showed up.

Ultra Dolphin Revolution is an indie development team full of Nintendo enthusiasts known for releasing new digital exclusive games on the Wii U very late in the console's lifespan. The name Ultra Dolphin Revolution is also a Nintendo reference, I'll explain it in the spoiler below:

Ultra as in Ultra 64, the prototype name for the Nintendo 64.
Dolphin as in Project Dolphin, the codename for the Nintendo GameCube.
Revolution as in Nintendo Revolution, which was the codename for the Wii.


More info: Nintendo UK's official page for the game since Nintendo of America got rid of all the Wii U game listings on the official North American Nintendo website.

Will Shadow Archer Special be the actual last game to be released on the Wii U or will someone else steal the spotlight of putting out the last ever game on the Wii U? Do you think Ultra Dolphin Revolution are crazy (not in a bad way of course) or just insanely devoted for pumping out new Wii U games this late in the console's lifespan? We'll just have to wait and see.

P.S.: Wake me up when Ultra Dolphin Revolution opens up a theme café, if you know what I mean.
