Coaster Crazy Deluxe Looping Onto the Wii U eShop

Shake the GamePad and see what happens
It seems that rollercoaster creation and Nintendo touch screens work well together, as Frontier Developments has confirmed Coaster Crazy Deluxe for the Wii U eShop; the original Coaster Crazy was on iOS. The developer is well known for its two LostWinds titles on WiiWare, and has experience with the coaster genre from working on Atari's RollerCoaster Tycoon 3.
This new title does mix up the basic concept with some quirky tweaks; you have the goal of keeping the "Crazies" amused with great rides, all while creating them quickly enough to beat a score before a Zombie infects them. While that's a bit wacky, there'll be plenty of standard coaster creation with ten areas to progress through, a sandbox mode, online leaderboards and daily challenges. The actual creation tool unsurprisingly uses the GamePad touch screen, while moving the controller can change your view while on a ride; shaking the controller does, well, something else.
Frontier Development says that a release date and price will be announced soon, and you can see a lot of these features in action thanks to the trailer below. Is this on your wishlist, assuming you're tall enough for the ride?
