Kerbal Space Program is starting to make its way to consoles, but the Wii U version is taking a bit longer than expected. Squad announced today that the game will be available this winter on the eShop.

For those who haven’t heard about Kerbal Space Program before, here’s what it’s all about:

Create your own spacecraft, launch it into space to explore the galaxy, and visit a vast amount of planets; assuming you can get it off the ground! Once you’ve made it to deep space, KSP lets you capture asteroids, launch mining programs to find resources across the furthest reaches of the solar system and build space stations around planets you discover.

Kerbal Space Program offers three game modes:

– In Sandbox, where you’re free to build anything your imagination can come up with;
– Science Mode lets you perform scientific experiments and advance the knowledge of Kerbals to unlock new technologies;
– Career Mode, places you in control of every aspect of the space program including crew management, reputation building, as well as embarking on side missions called ‘contracts’ to earn funds and upgrade your space center facilities.

Kerbal Space Program was confirmed for Wii U last August. When it does hit Nintendo’s console, the game will let players control their ship from the inside with the GamePad. Flight planning on the fly can be done with touchscreen controls, and the ship can be steered with gyro motion controls.
