Quick Update on the Wii U Version (Good news, don't worry!)

Posted by Starfall Studios (Creator)

Hey everyone! It's been a while since our last Kickstarter update, and while I plan to do a bigger one soon, I wanted to put out a quick update on the Wii U version of Sneaky Ninja. It seems the popular thing to do this week is to confirm whether or not games are still releasing on Wii U, and I'm happy to say that yes, the Sneaky Ninja on Wii U IS still happening!


I understand the decisions that other developers have made on this topic, and honestly, it's probably the wise business decision to move onto the Switch instead. And we know a lot of gamers simply won't care because it's too late. But I've kept our backers waiting for too long to do that now, so even if it sells zero units to anyone else, it's still worth doing in my eyes. Plus, I'm a Nintendo fan too, so I couldn't cancel it even if I wanted to! A Switch version is definitely possible in the future as well, but there's plenty of time to think about that later.

As for the release date... as I discussed in the comments of the last update, a holiday 2016 release was on shaky grounds back then due to so many other big games launching. I'm now targeting early February for PC which seems to be a good window for Sneaky Ninja, and I'm confident this will finally happen. I can't be as certain for the Wii U version's date though, which will be as soon as possible afterwards but it's hard to say how soon. I'd love to release it before the Switch, but I can't promise that'll happen. But the Wii U version itself WILL happen!

I'd also like to remind you guys that I post frequent smaller updates on Twitter and Facebook, usually once a week. If you want to see some new additions to Sneaky Ninja, go check those out!

      I'm overjoyed to hear you confirm that the Wii U version is still coming! Absolutely wonderful news to hear in light of the many games being cancelled or put in doubt for Wii U!

      With it coming out in 2017, and with me preparing a video for my most anticipated games of 2017, Sneaky Ninja is definitely placing on it. Really looking forward to it's release, and best of luck its development.
