Cubemen 2 Marching onto Wii U with Cross-Platform Multiplayer and Content Sharing

Cubemen2WiiU

In the next phase of their battle plan for multi-platform world domination, the voxel troops of Cubemen 2 are set to invade the Wii U. The eShop digital download indie game of tower defense and real-time strategy, currently available for PC, Linux, Mac and iOS, will be available late this year or early in 2014, with Australian studio Nnooo helping the game’s developer, 3 Sprockets, publish on Nintendo’s console.

More importantly, the Wii U edition will support cross-platform interaction for both online multiplayer and the sharing of user-generated content created with the built-in level editor. No other indie game for a Nintendo system anywhere in the world can tout such functionality.

“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.”

“We’re excited to be working closely with Nnooo and Nintendo to bring a new dynamic to a Nintendo platform,” said Seon Rozenblum, Director of 3 Sprockets. “We’re bringing the gaming community together, offering true cross-platform play and user generated content across multiple platforms and devices and we are ecstatic to be including the Wii U in our lineup for Cubemen 2.”
