Gunman Clive 2

Developer Bertil Hörberg just announced on Twitter that both Gunman Clive games are coming to Wii U. He has said in the past that he was interested in making a Wii U port of the 3DS games, but it looks like it’s finally happening now. Both games will be released in one package as the Gunman Clive HD Collection.


Gunman Clive 2’s sales have “been a bit disappointing” when compared to the series’ first entry, creator Bertil Hörberg has said.

Writing about Gunman Clive 2’s performance on Twitter, Hörberg stated:

Hörberg had a brief exchange with Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham, and acknowledged that his expectations may have been a bit too high while also noting that not enough was done to promote Gunman Clive 2.

Sales of the first Gunman Clive surpassed 400,000 units in February. It did particularly well on the 3DS.


Two Gunman Clive games have been made thus far. Could creator Bertil Hörberg eventually work on a third entry. Possibly, but don’t expect to see an announcement anytime soon.

Speaking with Nintendojo, Hörberg said:

I don’t know; it won’t be any time soon but I’m not against the idea of another sequel in the future. If I do create a Gunman Clive 3 or continue the series even further I think I will shake up the formula a bit more and do something a bit different. GC2 started as a very straightforward sequel with basically just more levels. I think it grew to be a bit more ambitious than that in the end, but it still follows the first game very closely in terms of the core gameplay and structure. Honestly I don’t really know where to go from here thematically; in GC2 I tried to make everything feel grander and more dramatic. He’s already been to space and traveled around the world, fought dinosaurs and giant robots, so I don’t know how I’d top that to make his next adventure feel like a clear step up again.

Hörberg also commented on his interest in porting Gunman Clive 2 to additional platforms. Wii U remains one system that could receive the game.

For now my goal is port the game to more platforms, but I haven’t made much progress with that yet, so it’ll be some time before I get started on a new project. I have a few loose ideas but nothing solid yet and I’ll spend some time prototyping before I decide anything.

Yes, possibly (Wii U as one of those platforms). My plan was to start with the platforms the first game was on (iOS, Android & Steam), as I want everyone who played that to be able to get the sequel, and then move on to Wii U and possibly other consoles. But we’ll see how many versions I’m able to do before I want to move on to a new game, so I’m not promising anything definite yet. The 3DS version made up for the vast majority of the total sales for GC1, but I don’t feel I can disregard the other platforms after one game, and it shouldn’t be too much work to port it. As I mentioned though, I haven’t gotten very far yet and it’s going pretty slowly still.


Last June, Gunman Clive creator Bertil Hörberg suggested that the sequel could be ported over to Wii U. This is something that Hörberg reiterated on his Twitter account today.

It sounds like Hörberg originally intended to first port Gunman Clive 2 to platforms that the first game was on, followed by consoles such as Wii U. It’s not entirely clear if that’s still the plan.

Hörberg’s tweets are as follows:


Have you completed Gunman Clive 2 yet? If so, you may have noticed something that resembles the New Super Mario Bros. logo. Head past the break for more.

Just like its predecessor, Gunman Clive 2 is a small download. We now know that the game only takes up 571 blocks of space.

Gunman Clive 2 launches this Thursday on the North American and European 3DS eShops.
