Liege Developer Approved For Wii U and Adds Stretch Goal to Crowdfunding Campaign

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Not far away

Just last week we told you about Liege, a title from developer Coda Games that's currently building up its crowdfunding campaign — which had already passed its initial funding target — and was in talks to be approved for Wii U development. As a title citing inspiration from Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy Tactics, while also offering up a rather decent pitch video, we were certainly interested by it here on Nintendo Life.

After Nintendo of America's Dan Adelman stepped in to help the developer with the process, the studio's John Rhee has been in touch to confirm that Coda Games is now an approved Wii U developer. As a result the Wii U has been added as a stretch goal on the title's Kickstarter page, with a target of $51,000 to guarantee the platform will get the game; at the time of writing the total is at just over $46,000 with four days to go.

It's been clarified that the Wii U version — if funded — will arrive a little later than the original platforms, due to developer approval being confirmed late in the process and to ensure that the earlier promised releases will arrive on time; the current estimate for the final product is July 2014. Check out the pitch video below and let us know whether you'd like to see this come to the Wii U eShop.

Graphically it seems kinda stiff for my tastes. But as a huge fan of 16-bit JRPGs, I'm definitely intrigued by this one.

The way the buildings look in this reminded me of Final Fantasy 3 on SNES. I'm interested for sure.

They better add some Wii U specific if its coming out last, otherwise they won't have many sales.

@Metaknight_3Raw because the new game does not use Wii U's capabilities in terms of graphics power. 3DS will be more than sufficient to handle this game and it has much more number of owners around the world.
