Ice Cream Surfer Rides The Waves to the Wii U eShop on 31st July

Here’s the scoop!

A little while back, we told you about a new game from Dolores Entertainment called Ice Cream Surfer, a side-scrolling shoot ‘em up where you play as one of five unique surfers and fight against the evil forces of vegetables to protect the right to eat desserts. It sounds like a suitably wacky experience; for those of you who’ve been eagerly awaiting its arrival, the wait is nearly over.

According to Dolores Entertainment, its début game on Nintendo platforms will be coming to the Wii U eShop on 31st July, it seems in all territories. Promised to feature a colourful 16-bit art style, six distinct worlds, a two player co-op mode, support for GamePad and Wii Remote controls, and a variety of unlockable content, the developer is keen to emphasize its merits.

We'll see soon, but what do you think? Will you be picking this up when it comes out or will you be leaving this one in the freezer? The trailer for the original version (on PC and iOS) is below.
