The Fall was an intriguing title on Wii U, overcoming some flaws thanks to its creativity and spin on sci-fi storytelling tropes. It was good news, then, when developer Over The Moon confirmed that the sequel - The Fall Part 2: Unbound - would still come to Wii U in 2017.

Unfortunately that version is no longer on the way, with the title now coming to the Nintendo Switch and other platforms with a Q3 release window. There's also a new story trailer that also provides a good look at the game.

Also of note, a blog update has provided some reasoning for the change away from Wii U.

We're coming to the Nintendo Switch! This is great news obviously, but it also appears that Nintendo is switching (hah) focus to promoting that platform over the Wii U. For that reason we've decided to focus on resources on supporting the Switch instead of the Wii U. As indies, we simply don't have the luxury of supporting a platform that's clearly being sunsetted. I was confident that we'd make it in time, but everyone's moving on to greener pastures and we'd be fools to stay behind.

It's disappointing that the Wii U eShop has lost another title, albeit not very surprising. It'll be interesting to see how this shapes up on Switch, nonetheless - is it on your wishlist?
