Hover Revolt of Gamers

For those following our weekly Kickstarter summaries, Hover: Revolt of Gamers by Midgar Studio has been a particular source of optimism. The colourful and promising free-running title has shown strong momentum with a realistic Wii U stretch goal.

The positive news is that, with six days to go at the time of writing, this title has passed its $100,000 Wii U stretch goal, in the process also funding local multiplayer modes. The developer has previously cited the legacy of local multiplayer on Nintendo systems as a reason for combining the two targets together; remaining stretch goals in the final week of funding are a swing-hook + hoverboard at $125,000 and 2 editable characters at $150,000.

With music contributions from Hideki Naganuma of Jet Set Radio fame and an exciting concept, this will surely be on the radar for plenty of Wii U owners. At present the initial releases are planned for April 2015.

You can check out the pitch video below, so let us know whether you're looking forward to this one's arrival next year.

Thanks to Luke for the tip.
