It's been common knowledge for a good amount of time that Shin'en Multimedia is planning multiple Wii U projects, with the intention to continue its support for Nintendo hardware. It's also been confirmed in the past that a successor to WiiWare title FAST - Racing League was on the cards, and after some recent Twitter prompts the developer has now confirmed FAST Racing NEO for the Wii U eShop.

To date only a basic announcement website has been launched with the above concept art, with a 2014 release promised. It's the second Wii U title from the studio to incorporate "Neo" into the title after the excellent Nano Assault Neo.

We suspect this news will be gratefully received by fans of the studio — which has done a lot of terrific work on Nintendo systems — and it's tentatively pegged for 2014.

Are you excited to hear that FAST is making a return on Wii U? Let us know what you hope to see in the title in the comments below.
