ZaciSa: Defense of the Crayon Dimension! Europe Reveal PR

After many months working on it, I am happy to reveal and announce that the North American Wii U eShop title, ZaciSa’s Last Stand, will be launching in Europe in late Q1 of 2015 as ZaciSa: Defense of the Crayon Dimension! Originally launched on July 3rd 2014 in North America, this brand new version for Europe regions will contain a major upgrade to the game, including new features, maps, improvements and more. North Americans have been enjoying this challenging and highly addicting gameplay ever since launch, now it’s time for our Europe friends to have their turn!

ZaciSa: Defense of the Crayon Dimension! is a Tower Defense genre type of game. Featuring an enemy race that wants to destroy your base, you must protect yourself at any cost by building different bot weapons. Different bots have different abilities and strategies, such as the Sentry bot who’s main role is attack to the Helper bot whose job is to slow down and freeze enemies in their tracks to Drone bots who are mobile and can move as they like around each map. ZaciSa offers a challenging but fair difficulty that will leave you trying to come up with new strategies to survive each wave of enemies as the levels get harder and harder.

The game will launch in Europe with 12 different maps, 6 more than where launched with the North American version. These include different type of space varieties and different gameplay challenges to overcome. Some maps feature only one base, while others will feature multiple bases giving you more of a challenge to protect them all or let them die. As an indie cross-over, both Wii U eShop indie games BLOK DROP U and PING 1.5+ have a themed map. These 2 maps features gameplay aspects of their respective titles. For example, the BLOK DROP U map actually allows you to play the hit physic-based puzzle game while you are trying to play ZaciSa.

The game features three different modes. Hard, Easy and Endurance Mode. Hard is the default mode that is the most challenging, while Easy will start you out with a little more starting money and enemies do less damage. Endurance Mode is a different approach that doesn’t feature any levels, but a non-stop wave of enemies that get harder and harder until you can face them no more.

Other features in the game includes:

  • Off-TV Gameplay so you can play the game without the need of the TV.
  • Local and Online Leaderboards. Score and challenge your friends online for the best scores in each map. Are you the best? Prove it!
  • Miiverse Posting. Post your end game screen to everyone on Miiverse to brag about your new high score and show how awesome you are.
  • Local Co-Op Gameplay. You and up to 4 other friends can play the game. With the use of extra Wii Remote Controllers, you can take direct control of the mobile Drones and conquer the map! BROK DROP U map also features a co-op gameplay allowing your friends to aim their Wii Remotes to the screen and destroy BLOKs and help you out.
  • 60 FPS Gameplay. Get the most out of the game at silky smooth goodness.

ZaciSa: Defense of the Crayon Dimension! is currently aiming for a late March 2015 release date in Europe with an expected launch price of €2.99 / £2.49. The game is in the final stages in being finished and will be submitted to Nintendo in a few short weeks. To help make up for the game being late to Europe, I will be having a special 1/2 launch sale to make up for this lateness. This means that during the 1st week, you will be able to get the game for €1.49 / £1.19.

Details on ZaciSa’s Last Stand Patch 1.2

Patch 1.2 for ZaciSa’s Last Stand for the Nintendo Wii U eShop has recently been sent off to Nintendo for testing. Due to the upcoming winter break, it is unlikely to be released this month. So expect more details about the patch launching in early January 2015. This new patch adds a lot of new things to the game as well as improves on other things. Some details include:

    • BLOK DROP U – Another new crossover map featuring the interactive game of BLOK DROP U. While you play ZaciSa’s Last Stand, you can play a game of BLOK DROP U. Fallen bloks will damage enemy ships and get the special red blok onto the ground safely will reward you for that level. This map allows for use of Wii Remote Controller to play BLOK DROP U, allowing for extra level of co-op to this map with friends! Features 4 unique BLOK DROP U levels to shake things up.
    • GAF – Featuring the planet of GAF, defend your base before enemies overwhelm you. Activate GAF Gold for extra power boost!
  • Map re-balances. Some maps, such as Twin Souls, have been re-balanced to allow for greater gameplay and not be so tough.
  • Miiverse Posting – With one simple button press, you can post your gameover score to all your fellow gamers with a look at what your base looked like as it fell and show off how well you did.
  • Endless mode renamed to Endurance mode with scoring fixed, now scales normally instead of to infinity and beyond.
  • Bank Loan – May not sound exciting, but will allow you to reach new higher levels with some extra money. But be warned, until the loan is paid off, you will receive a reduced money and score points from destroyed ships.
  • 5x game speed – The game’s internal mechanics have been refined. Now with added 5x game speed allowing you to quickly get through a level. Should come in handy in those high 30+ levels.
  • Music Player. Simple music player for those that like to listen to some of the already included music.
