Freedom Planet is coming to the Wii U, developer Stephen DiDuro (aka Strife) from GalaxyTrail Games has announced.

No release date has been given given, but Strife plans to have it up on the eShop by the end of 2015. He also hints that Wii U may not be the only console the game will come to...(PS release plz?!)

Freedom Planet, originally released for PC last year, is a 2D side-scroller platformer reminiscent of Sonic the Hedgehog and other SEGA franchises on the Genesis/Mega Drive. If you loved the classic Sonic games, you have ZERO excuses for not playing this. And although I haven't yet played Shovel Knight (waiting for its PS release!!), Freedom Planet was easily my favorite PC game last year. You can read my impressions here. (though TBH, I was probably on a nostalgia rush when I wrote that)
