The critically acclaimed indie adventure game Knytt Underground from Nifflas is going to be released on Wii U on December 19. According to Nifflas this is the best looking version of the game, which also includes the Infinity Hype update making the game even bigger. The game has been a hit on PlayStation 3, PS Vita and PC, making it one of the best-received indie game releases to date. Here’s a look at what’s coming for the Wii U release:

  • Over 1,800 intricately designed rooms to explore
  • Even more secrets to discover, quests to embark on and rooms to uncover!
  • Exclusively to Wii U on consoles, the Infinity Hype update brings improvements and changes based on fan feedback from Reddit
  • With new graphical effects and flourishes, the Wii U version is the best looking console version of the game
  • Thanks to the Nintendo GamePad, you can view the map easily, seeing where you’ve explored & where you have yet to venture.

    Looks a bit like Liimbo!

    • This game was actually around on PC before Limbo was ever made, so if anything Limbo looks a bit like it. 🙂

      • Andrew Chambers

        Sadly, I find it hard to warrant buying this on the Wii U right now since it’s $6 as part of a Humble Bundle with 7 other games.

  • Javier Smith

    Looking good, here’s hoping there’s off-tv play!

  • Schultz38

    Rated M for sexual themes and strong language?! Oh no! Someone call Nintendo! Nintendo is only supposed to only have family-friendly games! This can’t be!!!

    • Lil J Moore

      No More Heroes would like to have a word with you

      • JAYCEE989

        Dont forget MadWorld

        • D Moness

          and eternal darkness, also do not forget about all the resident evil games (some still exclusive to the nintendo system)

          • RyuNoHadouken

            Golgo 13

          • Andrew Chambers

            Wow, you’re really pulling out an old one, aren’t you?

          • RyuNoHadouken

            lol…what you know bout that?! i know you probably had to google it 🙂

          • Andrew Chambers

            No, I actually have heard of that before. Although I never played it.

        • Andrew Chambers

          How about Dementium, Silent Hill SM, or Cursed Mountain? Mostly Silent Hill because it’s more like Knytt because it has an M rating for sexual themes instead of gore.

    • Schultz38

      Sarcasm, guys.

      You’re only proving my point further.

      • kutral

        With all respect you deserve. I think sarcasm is a way that people without opinion has to say something wihtout been direct.

        Not saying that you are this kind of people, but thats the way i think. Sorry just been direct with you.

  • Lil J Moore

    This has my attention.

  • Ryushi

    This game seriously reminds me of Super Meat Boy.

  • FoxMulder900

    I’m not sure how I’ve not seen this game before, I love the atmosphere, I will definitely pick it up!

  • Justagamer

    Nice…Give it to me now!!!!!!!!!!

  • Gameonfool

    Another system seller I see

  • wober2

    Reminds me of amita design’s samorost2. I am excited!

  • Never seen a game be rated M without violence o.o

    • Josiah Parsons

      Where do they add the bad content? Cutscenes? I kinda doubt it. Options Menu?

  • Guesty pooh!

    So many indie games coming out next year too, so excited for most of them.
    Good to be a Wii U owner next year, between the indies and Nintendo’s first party lineup it looks like I will be a busy boy.

    Oddworld Strangers Wrath HD is my most wanted game, shame the original was overlooked by so many people, absolute gem.

  • Guesty pooh!

    Looks really good, might pick this up too.

    Sorry about the extra post, internet playing up like a PS4.
    Sorry, had to drop the boot in, too tempting.

  • Madmagican

    I like the mechanics in this one; transforming yourself for platforming precision 🙂

  • iamserious

    • Levi Johansen

  • fireheartis1
