Fans of puzzle platforming, either in solo play or multiplayer, have a promising title to consider for next week's eShop update. Sarepta Studio's Shadow Puppeteer - published by Snow Cannon Games - finally has a solid release date for Wii U, arriving in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand on 28th January.

We enjoyed some hands on time with the game at EGX last year; previously released on PC, it's a clever puzzle platformer in which a boy and his shadow move and operate largely independently of each other. Whether in solo play or local co-op the two work together to solve clever physics -and light-based puzzles.

We were rather impressed with this in our time with it last year and are diving into a review, and have an interview with the developers coming up soon. In the meantime you can learn a little more about it from our EGX video interview, below.
