The Cave's Motley crew

Double Fine's first Wii U game The Cave is due on the eShop early next year, and the company has been showing off what makes the Nintendo version so special.

The GamePad's screen is used for character selection, and can also be used to focus the in-game camera on a certain individual by double-tapping them.

Speaking to Joystiq, Double Fine's Chris Remo explained that the Wii U version would be identical to other editions of the game:

We did work really hard to ensure that visually everything you're seeing is identical to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, so there's no downscaling, there's nothing going on that is not up to par with the other next-gen systems. There's nothing super wacky going on, but it's a completely full-featured version of the game.
