It took nearly a whole year since its PAL region launch, but PokéPark Wii: Pikachu’s Adventure has finally arrived on the Virtual Console for Wii U in North America. Developed by Creatures Inc., this 2009 Pokémon spinoff tasks the series’ adorable mascot in retrieving the fourteen pieces of the shattered Sky Prism that once protected the titular PokéPark. To that end, Pikachu must befriend the many Pokémon there and borrow their talents to clear the various attractions around the park, ultimately winning back the pieces of the broken Prism to restore the park to its previous, peaceful state.
