Hardcore Gamer: Freedom Planet officially announced for Wii U.
This is a good console to choose for this kind of game.
I really wanted a PSVita version. Hopefully it does happen if the Wii U port is successful.
It took them a while to announce a Wii U version. Maybe they'll announce a Vita version later!
Is it, though? The WiiU has a glut of 2D platformers. The other consoles... not so much. Nintendo is also the only company out there making AAA 2D platformers... so I would argue it's very possibly the -worst- platform for this kind of game.
Could it be that Nintendo is making the 2D platformers because they have an audience for that genre? If the audience is there, makes sense for Freedom Planet to follow suit. Look at Shovel Knight.
This just made me split into a very wide grin! Best news I've heard all day! I've had my eye on this ever since I heard about it; I honestly think that Sonic team should take notes from these people to get Sonic back into his groove, which is ironic considering this pretty closely emulates Sonic during his best days.XD
Just saw some footage, even the music sounds like it would belong in a sonic game. I'll be keeping an eye on this one.
I do like the fact that Indies are supporting the Wii u,but what I'm concerned with is that the Indies only been games that looks like they came from the snes and genesis era.
Actually met one of the main dudes who made this at Florida Supercon last July. He was pretty cool. Really need to get this game soon.
on the fence............ should i buy wii U or ps4?? im a casual gamer at heart . the problem is R&C and NFS two games i love deeply not supported on wii U . on tight budget, wish able to afford both. decisions, decisions,Decision!!!!
As an owner of both consoles, they are both great machines in their own right. It depends on the kind of experience and games you want. If you like colorful games get the Wii U. If you like the more mature games get the PS4. If you can, try to get both in the long run! :)
What Random said, though I would personally recommend getting a PS3 over a PS4, presently, due to the catalog of games being larger and the online multiplayer being free on PS3. The graphics are better on PS4 and there's the share features, but outside of those, there really aren't that many reasons to pick a 4 over a 3 at the moment, IMO.
I'll just wait and see if (like Shovel Knight) this will get ported to other consoles eventually.
