Mighty Switch Force 2 Banner

We've known for a good while that WayForward is bringing 3DS eShop release Mighty Switch Force! 2 to the Wii U eShop, following in the steps of Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition. The developer has been targeting an October release and, based on the tweets of main man Matt Bozon, it seems to have succeeded.

As confirmed below the title arrives this week in North America, and Europe / PAL regions on 24th October; it's also stated that this is the same version as on 3DS, meaning the original pixel-based visuals adapted to a 16:9 ratio.

Though appreciative of its charms, we weren't as overwhelmed with delight when playing the original 3DS version as we'd hoped to be, with our review giving a solid recommendation. It'll be interesting to see how it translates to the big screen.

Are you planning to pick this up on Wii U?
