The Wii U eShop has been home to a variety of new developers with bold ambition, and Berlin-based Red Column is the latest to set out its stall for the store. It's bringing 3Souls exclusively to Wii U in Q2, with the goal of utilising the GamePad "to break new ground in how you control your character and play the game".

Described as a puzzle platformer, the GamePad is used to understand and interact with the emotions of '√Ānimas', creatures from the world of Mustland. The evident ambition of the concept and its use of the controller are certainly to be commended, though admittedly it's a title that looks rather simplistic visually.

The spirit of download-only games can mean that humble aesthetics are overcome through clever designs and concepts; you can check out the trailer below to see if you think 3Souls has that potential.

A Q2 release target means that it's not far away, in any case - will you be keeping an eye on this one?
