Dark Seas Games confirms Road Redemption for Wii U

Posted on April 23, 2013 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop

Earlier this month, we mentioned a new Kickstarter campaign going by the name “Road Redemption”. The Road Rash-esque project would be considered for Wii U, but hadn’t been officially confirmed for the platform.

Developer Dark Seas Games has now revealed that it will in fact be releasing Road Redemption for Wii U along with the previously announced PC, Mac, and Linux versions.

Project spokesperson Daniel Balazs said:

“The Wii U userbase values great gameplay and unique experiences. We believe that the Wii U is a great fit for Road Redemption.”

Dark Seas Games feels strongly about the Wii U’s technical abilities and GamePad, noting that “it has great potential for local multiplayer gaming without the need for a splitscreen.”

Balazs added:

“Nintendo has reached out to independent game developers by wholeheartedly embracing the Unity 4 gaming engine for Wii U development. This was definitely a factor in our decision since we are already working with Unity 4 for the PC, Mac, and Linux versions of Road Redemption. We are proud to add the Wii U to the list of Road Redemption’s platforms, and we plan to release Road Redemption on Wii U shortly after releasing on PC, Linux, and Mac. We’re bringing Road Redemption to Windows PC, Mac, Linux, and now the Wii U. We’re building it, from the ground up, to be an amazing experience on mouse, keyboard, and gamepads.”
