Cooperative Puzzle Adventure Shadow Puppeteer Coming to Wii U eShop

Developer Sarepta Studio approved for Wii U development

Norwegian developer Sarepta Studio has been approved to develop games for Nintendo systems, and its first order of business is to bring co-op puzzle adventure Shadow Puppeteer to the Wii U eShop. The game was initially announced as a PC release, but the developers at the studio are ecstatic to be bringing their creation to Nintendo gamers the world over.

Beyond the darkly whimsical aesthetics of Shadow Puppeteer lies a tricky puzzler: the game stars a boy and his shadow who must manipulate light and darkness to bring down the titular shadow-snatching baddie. Sarepta got a chance to show the game off at GDC earlier this year, where they got feedback from press and fellow developers on their progress.

It's currently unclear when Shadow Puppeteer will be making its début on Wii U eShop, but rest assured we'll have the details as they arrive! In the meantime, the game's official site is a great place to follow the latest trailers and a nifty developers' blog.
