Pushmo was a very charming puzzler released for the 3DS back in 2011. In it you controlled a character named Mallo (sadly not related to Mallow of Super Mario RPG fame), and you pushed and pulled blocks of varying shape and size in order to solve puzzles. Pushmo was pretty simple in design, but took a lot to master. The follow-up, Crashmo featured the same basic gameplay but added new depth (like making blocks fall and crash, hence the name), and was equally well-received.
Now the Pushmo series is coming to Wii U June 19th in the form of Pushmo World. To celebrate this and promote earlier titles in the series, both Pushmo and Crashmo will be available at a reduced price from now until June 13th. Pushmo will be avilable for $4.69 and Crashmo will be 5.99. Pushmo World will be priced at $9.99 and there are currently no sales promotions planned with it. Check out the trailer for Pushmo World below:
I do find it surprising that Nintendo did not hold back a reveal of this game for E3. Granted, we don’t know much about their E3 plans, but this is an iteration in one of their more highly acclaimed series as of late. Hopefully this does mean they have plenty of big stuff in store come June 10th when they have their Nintendo Direct.
