Unepic Adventuring Onto Wii U eShop in 2013

"A mixture of platform game, role game and joke"
EnjoyUp Games has announced this week that it'll be publishing Unepic, an indie RPG platformer released on PC in 2011. In this adventure you play as Daniel, "great videogame player, big lover of sci-fi movies, novice player of role games, pot-head", who is swept away to a mysterious castle which he believes is a hallucination; full marks for a quirky storyline.
This title incorporates 2D platforming with what appears to be substantial RPG levelling, abilities and item gathering — apparently we can expect 100 different weapons and 70 spells to learn, for example. Alternative endings, four difficulty levels and achievements are also included, so this has undoubtedly been a serious passion for creator Francisco Téllez de Meneses, who created the game over two years in his spare time.
The game has been approved by Nintendo and the porting process will begin in January, though it's expected that Nintendo will want some of the more adult content to be changed, with a rough prediction of a May release currently on the cards. EnjoyUp Games has a lengthy list of downloads published on Nintendo systems — including La Mulana, of course — so it'll be interesting to see how this title develops.
