Dutch Developer Ronimo Games Working On Swords & Soldiers II For Wii U

Posted by Liam Doolan

A sequel to the 2009 WiiWare original

Ronimo Games is best known by Nintendo fans for its release of Swords & Soldiers on the WiiWare service back in 2009. Less acclaimed was the release of the 3D version of the game on the 3DS eShop last year. However way you've heard about the Netherlands-based studio and its side-scrolling strategy game, the developer is pleased to announce its latest title Swords & Soldiers II is coming to the Wii U as a downloadable game.

According to the few details released so far, the sequel to the 2009 original will involve Redbeard and his gang of burly Vikings in an all-new adventure. Throughout his journey, Redbeard will make new friends and enemies, with barbecue parties no longer being the sole focus — it’s now more about saving the world!

Further information regarding Swords and Soldiers II for Wii U will be revealed at GDC in a few weeks time. It’ll also be playable at PAX East. In the meantime, check out the announcement teaser below:

That's cool. Wish the 3DS port of the first was better. Might still get it on sale anyway.

Always happy to see smaller developers making games for consoles I own, most of the innovation in gaming is coming from these smaller studios.

It's good news that swords & soldiers is getting a sequel and it's coming the Wii U, but personally I think Castlestorm has tweaked this formula to perfection. It will be interesting to see how this game turns out.

Yep, the Wii U clearly doesn't have any 3rd party suport.
Does everyone forget the eShop exists? And Indies too?

@Emblem Yes, as in mostly superior.

There are some awesome third party games out there, and more coming. We should embrace them more.

Also this is the second Dutch indie developer for the Wii U. Yay for the Dutch!
The other one being Two Tribes (Toki Tori 2)

This is great news! I loved the one on wiiware. This one could benefit from two player games with one on gamepad and another on tv, and maybe 4 players online? Ooooh, online would rock :D

The original is well made, with lots of flair!

Here's hoping for more of both in the sequel.

@Anguspuss

more... like 5 seconds.... if it takes you longer, then you need to organize your Wii u menu better. Not saying that folders wouldn't be good.

@Emblem

Pretty much this, look at Steam even, you can select a Category for "Indie"
