Dakko Dakko has announced that their shoot-em-up platformer Scram Kitty will be released on the Wii U in April. You can check out the brand new trailer for the game above. The game is supposed to make unique use of the GamePad as well. It’s nice to see indies continue to have a focus on using the Wii U’s strengths.

    Looks fun

  • Rick Valenta

    This looks like it could potentially be cool. I will at the very least check out the Demo. What the Wii U really need’s though is another Indie 2D platformer.

      Not sure I would classify this as a Platformer..

      It’s more like a Puzzle Arcade Shooter.

      • Rick Valenta

        And puzzle games. More puzzle games please.

      • lonewolf

        Its a shoot em up look it up 🙂

    • SP-937-215

      Point and click adventures would be good too.

      The saturation of platformers currently on the Eshop lead me to hope your being sarcastic.

      • Rick Valenta

        Ding ding ding!! We have a winner.

        • alex toschi

          Wow! I mean this so unexpected I didn’t even have a speech ready.. I guess I’d like to thank the internet, for training each and everyone of us the dark art of sarcasm. Seriously though this looks like a fresh game and I’m excited. Indie developers need to get away from the platforming genre it’s getting rally hard to look at the games coming and perceive them as being more creative when they all are basically the same gameplay.

          • Rick Valenta

            Yeah this one does look cool. Some of my favorite games on the wii/wii u have been indie. Lilt Line, World of Goo, and anything from Shinen. Hopefully they just keep exploring any/all genres and make fun games.

  • GregoryTheRainMaker

    This feel like something I would play, and I like the music that goes along with it.

  • Virus6

    The more I see this, the more I want it

  • Wayne Beck

    Was always gonna buy this, but I wasn’t sure I would like it. This trailer, with more emphasis on the Puzzle aspects of the level design, is starting to win me over. Not 100% yet, but I’m starting to see how I could get in to this game.

  • Maybe it is off-topic,but Why is Nintendo’s tweet in Mojang’s website?Does it mean we will actually see Minecraft on Wii U(and maybe even Nintendo 3DS)?Also,that game looks so much fun!

    • Shota

      that’s strange

    • readypembroke

      Look right below the post. It says retweeted by Daniel Kaplan. Above it says tweets from a list by Daniel Kaplan. That’s how come it is on there.

    • linkzero65

      nah probably not. i mean that would be cool but i can’t see that happening.

      • I know,but we can still wait and see(just to be sure).Also Notch said that Mojang is a friend with Nintendo.So…yeah.

        • linkzero65

          mmm… ok time will tell

  • Michael Hughes

    They had me at kitty, but I’ll take the shooty-platformer bits too.

    Perfect electro shooter music! Reminiscent of Space Megaforce for the SNES. I think the sound effects could be bigger with more reverb, though.
