Video: This New Insanity's Blade Trailer Cuts A Gory Swathe Through The Web

PC release confirmed for later this month, Wii U version coming later

We've been following the progress of Insanity's Blade closely over the past few months and can't wait to see what the game looks like when it finally hits the Wii U eShop.

Causal Bit Games successfully kickstarted its unique take on the side-scrolling action platformer at the end of last year, and recently overhauled the visuals to give the game a 16-bit look.

We've now been treated to a new official trailer, showing some of the carnage we can expect to see when it finally launches.

Here's what Causal Bit Games had to say about the news:

The game is still set to launch for Windows on May 20th with Mac and Linux following shortly thereafter. We had previously announced on the Kickstarter that there were issues with the software we use to build the game having either a memory leak or a limitation to the size of the game we could build, so the optional NES graphics version of the game with some of the old stages had to be cut in order to continue working on the game. The program was constantly crashing when creating new objects or events so we cut down and cleaned up as much as possible to get the game back on track!

The Wii U version of the game went into development a few weeks ago and we are looking forward to bringing you progress reports on that version! At this point we are expecting it to take a couple of months to be completed as it had to be reprogrammed in Unity. But the game is indeed coming! We will get a release date to you later down the line when we have a better feel for what is going on!

Are you excited about this retro-infused action title? Of course you are. Be sure to check out our exclusive interview with the developer in the meantime.
