Just hours after Nintendo of Europe confirm the European Download for this week’s 3DS and Wii U eShops, Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails has been confirmed for the week after. Dakko Dakko revealed the release date today via Twitter, confirming that the wait is almost over not just for European gamers, but those in North America too. The game will be released in both regions on Thursday May 15th.

Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails is a Wii U eShop exclusive from Welsh indie developers, Dakko Dakko.
