Earlier this month we reported that The 90's Arcade Racer was speeding closer to the Wii U, as developer Pelikan13 had taken to Kickstarter in the hope that his project would make it past its $10,000 target, and re-create a classic arcade racing experience for the gamers of today. He had also strongly hinted in an update that exciting developments were bringing the game to Wii U, in particular.
It has now been confirmed that Nicalis - known for optimising and publishing titles such as VVVVVV on the 3DS eShop - has taken the steering wheel into its own hands and is planning to bring the title to the Wii U eShop.
Creator of the upcoming racer title Antonis Pelekanos - known as Pelikan13 - said the following in a press release:
There was a simple reason why I started this project, ‘What if a racing game with old school principles was built using today’s technology’. I know we can achieve that goal. Working with Nicalis, we can release on more platforms, including Wii U. Nicalis will also support with Unity programming, physics, tuning and general design and production of the game.
Let us know your thoughts on this upcoming development; we look forward to seeing more in the near future.
