Indie developers Ackkstudios got the approval to be a Wii U developer this week, and has announced that its first project is to port over Two Brothers to the Wii U eShop next year.

The game is inspired by 8-bit action RPGs and GameBoy games, with the aim of combining modern gaming concepts and a classic feel to bring about a unique and fun style. The gameplay is similar to games like Secret of Mana and The Legend of Zelda. You take on the role of Roy Guarder, a young inventor who begins to obsess with the idea of finding new colour for the monochrome Earth after having a near death experience. Roy's brother soon joins him on his quest, and so your adventure begins.

The game began as a Kickstarter project, reaching $16,257 out of its goal of $6,000.

We look forward to hearing more about Two Brothers and seeing whether it's one to watch for the future. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
