Chromophore: The Two Brothers has always seemed like a title destined to hit it off with a Nintendo audience; it's an action adventure with Game Boy-style visuals and a heavy Link's Awakening vibe, which naturally attracted a lot of attention in the past. Its planned arrival on Wii U hasn't come around, however, despite the title long being available on PC.

We've spoken to developer Ackkstudios at EGX about the latest on this project, and the pleasing news is that it'll finally arrive on Wii U this Winter, which should be the end of this year or early 2016.

The circumstances around the delay have been particularly unfortunate - a third party had been paid to complete the conversion work from the PC build, yet it wasn't even near finished before the partnership broke down; this is despite money being paid for the port. It's been a legal issue and has taken an extensive period of time to resolve, and Ackkstudios itself has had to continue the work under the trying circumstances of also being committed to its next project - YIIK: A Postmodern RPG.

The new window is a firm one, however, assuming there are no major surprises or problems. YIIK: A Postmodern RPG is also due in the coming Winter and is coming to Wii U - we'll have hands on impressions and some intriguing details on the title with you later this weekend.
