The Wii U eShop is doing a good job of attracting quality multiplatform indie titles lately, and the next in line is BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition, which lands on 30th July in North America and Europe. The North American price is $9.99, with Euro pricing still to be confirmed.
The Wii U version builds on the original tablet game with completely redesigned and revamped controls which offer full directional control over the game's characters. We are assured that the levels have also been rebuilt to suit the new control mechanics.
The game's visuals have also been given an Full-HD 60 FPS makeover and the Wii U version comes with up-to-four-player, local old-school style multiplayer with full support for the Pro controller, GamePad, Wii Remote and Wii Remote Plus controllers. The game includes off-screen play for the GamePad, local achievements and online leaderboards to compare stats with your friends.
Furthemore, the new edition features over 15 hours and 100 levels of single-player story content, 100 co-op levels, and 27 multiplayer deathmatch stages for up-to-four-person old school style-local multiplayer fun and frolics.
Reviews for the game are "very positive" on STEAM, so this looks like one to watch out for. Are you looking forward to exploring BADLAND when it arrives in just over a week?
