NinjaBee Studio has confirmed that it will be bringing its Xbox Live Arcade title A World of Keflings to the Wii U eShop later this year.

The sequel to A Kingdom for Keflings, A World of Keflings launched on the Xbox 360 back in 2010. It places you in a fantasy world where you must help Keflings — small humanoid beings — build their kingdom. One of the game's most appealing elements is the ability to play online with others in the same kingdom. On Xbox Live Arcade the game allows you to use your avatar as your in-game character — presumably the Wii U version will permit the same connectivity for your Mii.

Here's what NinjaBee's Brent Fox had to say on the company's blog:

With the current generation of consoles coming to an end, we saw opportunities to bring what is perhaps our studio’s most well-loved game to many, many more players. With that said, we’re proud to announce that in addition to today’s release on Windows 8, A World of Keflings will be coming to the Wii U later this year.

Both of these new platforms offered us huge advantages and were ideal marketplaces for a light-hearted city-builder. Windows 8 gave us the chance to make the game mobile and add in very smooth, natural touch controls. The Wii U has allowed us to significantly enhance the game’s visuals and, with the Wii U GamePad, explore new ways to interact with the game and its characters.
