Developer GalaxyTrail has announced on Twitter that the Kickstarter funded project, Freedom Planet, will be coming to the eShop on Wii U.
The game strongly resembles early Sonic the Hedgehog games but is described as a spiritual successor to the 2D Sonic games rather than a clone. In their FAQ, GalaxyTrail explained the resemblance by saying “We were definitely inspired by Sonic when developing the characters and stages for Freedom Planet, but they are not exactly the same thing.”
Freedom Planet is already available on PC, Mac and Steam. There is no release date yet for the Wii U version but GalaxyTrail has said they are aiming to release by the end of the year.
