AE Games has clarified that while it has received approved Wii U developer status, it has yet to obtain a Wii U development kit.

Mad Men Football developer AE Games has exclusively revealed to us that it has now been officially approved as Wii U developer.

With a Wii U development kit finally in its possession, the indie studio can now begin to develop its previously announced Gridiron football title, in which everyday sportsmen are bizarrely replaced with historical figures such as George Washington and Julius Caesar.

Until now, we've only seen some concept art for the game, and given that AE Games have only just received their newly approved status, it may be a short while before we see actual gameplay footage. The small development studio previously created waves by blaming major third-party companies for essentially sabotaging their chances of success on Wii U in a public blog post.
