WayForward Hopes To Release Wii U Version of Mighty Switch Force! 2 in October

Will be more than just a typical HD port

Last month, WayForward confirmed Mighty Switch Force! 2, the 3DS eShop title that emerged in June, will be coming to Wii U in the future.

However, the developer did state it was a "backburner project" and considering it is pretty busy at the moment, what with the unveiling of the Kickstarter project for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, you'd be forgiven for thinking the HD version of Mighty Switch Force! 2 will be a while off yet.

Well, it may arrive sooner than you think, as in an interview with Siliconera, James Montagna, a director at WayForward, said the studio is hoping to release the game onto the Wii U eShop in October.

He also revealed WayForward initially had no plans to create a Wii U version for the second Mighty Switch Force! title but it noticed there was a lot of vocal gamers expressing their desire to see it come to Nintendo's home console on Miiverse.

We had no intentions of bringing it to the Wii U, originally. [Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition] was an experiment, something we just wanted to try out - but [because of the feedback] we are bringing Mighty Switch Force! 2 to the Wii U. We caved.

Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition was available to download in North America and Europe on Wii U launch day and replicated a HD version of the 3DS title with a few new features. However, WayForward is doing things a little differently for the home console adaptation of Mighty Switch Force! 2 and it will instead be a pixel version with "high definition interstitial screens".
