Kickstarter-funded title Super Comboman could be coming to the Wii U eShop, we can exclusively reveal.
We've been speaking to Interabang Entertainment's Justin Woodward about the forthcoming platforming adventure, which raised $16,170 on Kickstarter last November — just a little over the target goal of $14,900.
According to Woodward, Super Comboman is "2D physics based action brawler that is a mix between Final Fight, Smash Bros. and Marvel Vs Capcom" where the player uses their "combo momentum" to solve puzzles, destroy the environment and beat up gangs of enemies.
Like Paper Mario: Sticker Star, the game has a sticker theme, with characters getting "peeled" and "stuck" into each scene.
The game is currently being developed for PC and Mac, but because it's being built using Unity 3D, a port to the Wii U would be fairly straightforward. However, Woodward is keen to stress that such a conversion depends entirely on how well other editions of the game perform commercially.
He told us:
We are extremely interested in porting Super Comboman to Wii U but we would need more interest to do another crowd-funding campaign.
Right now, we are interested in getting the Nintendo audience involved with our development and to see what we need to do in order to either launch a Nintendo-focused crowd-funding campaign or just figure out how to fund the port ourselves after the game is completed.
If you ask us, Super Comboman is looking pretty sweet and is just the kind of game we'd love to see on the Wii U eShop. Hopefully the PC and Mac versions will be successful, paving the way for a Nintendo edition of the game. Is this a title you'd personally invest in?
