Neko Entertainment was an early supporter of the Wii U eShop with European launch title Puddle, and shortly after release it hinted that more titles would be on the way to the platform in the near future. We can now exclusively reveal Neko's second game on the download service: Kung Fu Rabbit will be coming to the Wii U eShop very soon.
As the titular Kung Fu Rabbit, you're hopping mad and on a mission to rescue your bunny disciples, who have been snatched from your temple by Universal Evil. It'll take all your slick moves, sneaky skills and martial arts training to save the youngsters before they're cooked up for Evil's lunch.
The 2D platformer, originally developed by Cazap and Ctools, was released on iOS and Android last year by publisher Bulkypix. Itching to play a version with more accurate, non-touch controls, Neko has taken the game and built a Wii U version that's optimised for the console. Players will be able to take the fight to Universal Evil using either a Wii U GamePad, Wii U Pro Controller, Wii Remote or Classic Controller.
Here's what Neko has to say about Kung Fu Rabbit:
Life in the temple of rabbits hangs by a thread. Universal Evil has struck again and kidnapped all of your disciples. Only you managed to escape. They let you live… They'll soon regret it!
Use your agility and combat skills to save your disciples! Jump from roof to roof, slide gracefully along walls, sneak up on your enemies, and rip them to shreds!
Detailed graphics, humour, hours of gameplay and intuitive controls. Each of the 80 levels requires logic, precision, agility and Kung Fu Rabbit mastery.
Kill the Evil and save the babies, eat the carrots and unlock trophies!
- 80 levels in normal and hard mode (dozen hours of play!)
- 15 unlockable items to customize your rabbit.
Kung Fu Rabbit is currently in the final stages of Nintendo's submission process, and Neko estimates that it'll be released on the Wii U eShop in mid-April. That gives you a few weeks to watch this début trailer, shuffle through all the screens in our media album and sharpen up those martial arts skills.
