Rumour: Flashback Remake Coming To Wii U eShop

1992 classic is getting a lick of paint
French action platformer Flashback is being remade for modern consoles, and rumour has it that a Wii U eShop edition is also on the cards.
Originally developed for the Commodore Amiga by Delphine Software in 1992, the game combined 3D visuals with 2D platforming and quickly gained a cult following. Console conversions for the Sega Mega Drive and SNES followed the year after, adding more fans to the ranks.
The remake - entitled Flashback Origins - is being handled by VectorCell, the studio established by Paul Cuisset - who created the original during his time with Delphine. Delphine itself succumbed to bankruptcy in 2004.
Aside from a single screenshot, there's nothing else to go on at the moment. Ubisoft is apparently handling the publishing duties, but when contacted by Spong, the company declined to comment.
