Airship Combat Title Guns Of Icarus Online Could Be Flying To Wii U

Kickstarter goal successfully reached, Unity build means a port is possible

Muse Games has revealed to us that it is considering porting its title Guns of Icarus Online: Adventure Mode to the Wii U eShop.

The game recently passed its Kickstarter goal of $100,000, and because it is built using Unity, a conversion to Nintendo's machine should be relatively straightforward.

We spoke to Muse Games' CEO Howard Tsao about the possilbity of a port, and this is what he had to say:

I haven't gone through the dev application process yet, but I think I'm going to, especially given the level of integration with Unity. I don't have a time line yet, as we'll still be working on improving the game and with ground work on Adventure Mode. But hopefully in the coming months, we can fit some time in for application and development work.

The game looks very promising indeed, and would be a unique title for the Wii U. Is this the kind of thing you'd like to see on the console?

Okay, let me put this out there. I played this game at a friend's house and it is sooo fun. You do not understand how badly I'd love to see this ported to Wii U.

I didn't know it until I watched the kickstarter video (linked to in the video above). But my lord that game seems perfect for me Guns of Icarus Online: Adventure Mode, where I can either play with or without others (my preferred method of play) to complete missions between towns & such in an expansive world... I would love to play this game on Wii U I know it'll be a long time away but I'll definitely keep watch for this game.

Seen the words Icarus & Wii U together and got very excited about an Uprising sequel. However this also looks amazing.

The only thing I would hope for if they did bring the game to Wii would be the integration of team chat. Having played it at Eurogamer last year, it strikes me as a game where communication is pretty important.
