In exile

During our US team's walk around the showfloor at this year's E3 it has been discovered that XSEED is bringing the indie title Exile's End to the Wii U eShop.

Created by one-man studio Magnetic Realms (in reality Japan-based Australian Matt Fielding), Exile's End takes inspiration from a wide range of sources, including the likes of Another World, Flashback and (in our opinion) Super Metroid.


Billed as a "cinematic platformer" with a uniquely Japanese flair, Exile's End takes place on "a massive, interconnected laboratory and mining complex on a moody, lonely alien world", and expects the player to solve puzzles and overcome issues using a combination of weapons and other items.

According to this Polygon interview from a while back, Fielding has collaborated with Japanese artists to ensure the game has that authentic SNES feel. Ninja Gaiden composer Keiji Yamagishi has also contributed to the game's soundtrack.
