Cubemen 2 is coming to the Wii U, and in what is reportedly a world first for any indie game on a Nintendo platform, the game will feature cross platform multiplayer, allowing Wii U players to play against others on PC, Linux, Mac and iOS.
Cubemen 2 is developed by Melbourne studio 3 Sprokets, and published by Sydney-based Nnooo, and is due to launch as a downloable title on the Wii U in "late 2013/early 2014".
Cubemen 2 is a fast-paced 3D strategy game in which the player controls an army of Cubemen, using them to battle against enemies in a range of modes. Players will be able to enter online matches and create and share user-generated levels regardless of which platform they are using. Players on the Wii U version will be able to battle against other players who own the game on Wii U, PC, Linux®, Mac® or iOS device.
"I'm really proud to be able to announce this," said Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo. "We've spent the last few months working with both Nintendo and 3 Sprockets, the game's developer, to make this a reality. Cubemen 2 is an amazing game and a great fit for Nintendo players. We can't wait to see how creative they are, whether in tactical multiplayer online or in the new levels they build."
