Stick it to the Man, Picross e4 penciled in for eShop next week


Stick it to the Man and Picross e4 are coming to the Wii U and 3DS respectively as part of next week's eShop update. Both games arrive in North America on May 1, which means Picross e4 misses its target April window by a day. Don't worry, we've already alerted the authorities. Meanwhile, Europe gets Stick it to the Man on the same day, but the continent has to wait until May 22 for Picross e4.

Written by Adventure Time comic author Ryan North, Stick it to the Man stars a dude who reads minds using a pink spaghetti arm that pops out of his head. So, a bit like Professor X but with less Patrick Stewart and more pink spaghetti arm.

If you fancy Stick it to the Man on Wii U, it'll set you back $10 in North America and £7/8 euros across the pond. If you're a PS4 owner and a Plus subscriber, you can pick up Zoink's 2D adventure as a Plus freebie when it hits Europe on April 30 and North America on May 6. Alternatively, it's already available on PC.

Moving onto Picross e4, the latest batch of gridded criss-cross features more than 150 puzzles, including new 20x15 whoppers. As for the hard numbers, it'll set you back $6 in North America, and £4.50/5 euros in Europe.

The eShop is about to get Sticky!
The insanely funny psychic platform-adventure game will be making its eShop debut next week!

24th April 2014: The awesomely talented devs at Zoink! Games and Indie Publisher Ripstone have announced today that the eccentric and totally hilarious psychic platform-adventure game; Stick It To The Man! will be making its Wii U eShop debut next week! The game will be launching on both sides of the pond simultaneously on 1st May priced at £6.99 / €7.99 / $9.99.

Stick It To The Man! centres around hardhat tester; Ray Doewood – who has a bizarre accident and wakes up with a giant pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his brain! Standard stuff really. This absurd fluorescent arm (which is invisible to others) gives Ray awesome powers, allowing him to hear people's thoughts and change the crazy paper world around him with stickers! Digging in the brains of his fellow citizens – including the likes of Santa Claus, a Pregnant General and Elvis (to name but a few); it's up to Ray to gather clues from countless insane characters and solve mind-boggling puzzles – all while trying to escape the evil clutches of The Man! Can you help to get Ray out of this sticky situation?

Those fun-loving Zoinkers have been beavering away to create a cool and completely new way to play Stick It To The Man! just for Nintendo fans! The Wii U version features a totally unique way of using the GamePad to mindread characters – further separating the mind reading world from Ray's world.
