We've known for a good while that WayForward is bringing 3DS eShop release Mighty Switch Force! 2 to the Wii U eShop, following in the steps of Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition. The developer has been targeting an October release and, based on the tweets of main man Matt Bozon, it seems to have succeeded.
As confirmed below the title arrives this week in North America, and Europe / PAL regions on 24th October; it's also stated that this is the same version as on 3DS, meaning the original pixel-based visuals adapted to a 16:9 ratio.
Hey Wii U owners!! Mighty Switch Force 2 is ret-2-goo! North America this Thursday, everywhere else one week later!— Matt Bozon (@MrBozon) October 16, 2013
Tomorrow on Wii U: "Mighty Switch Force! 2". This is the same version as on Nintendo 3DS. So, pixel artwork retooled for 16:9 screens.— Matt Bozon (@MrBozon) October 16, 2013
Though appreciative of its charms, we weren't as overwhelmed with delight when playing the original 3DS version as we'd hoped to be, with our review giving a solid recommendation. It'll be interesting to see how it translates to the big screen.
Are you planning to pick this up on Wii U?
