Developer Double Fine Productions have confirmed that the upcoming platformer The Cave is coming to the Wii U console. Double Fine has been a lot in the press lately for its hugely successful Kickstarter project for Double Fine Adventure. The Cave is a platform-adventure game directed by Ron Gilbert, one of the creators of Monkey Island. The Cave is set in a cave (surprise, surprise!), and features several characters of widely different type. For instance, players can play as a scientist, or a knight, or even a hillbilly. The Cave is published digitally by SEGA and will be released in early 2013 on the PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and now, the Wii U eShop as well. Check out some interesting screenshots of the game below:

  • AKA-Link77

    Im not sure what “Cave” is [about] but yet again, its nice to see additional support for Wii U. 🙂 😉

    • nintedward

      i presume its about a cave funnily enough. i could be horribly wrong , but the title ‘cave’ suggest something strongly linked with a ‘cave’.

      • Macarony64

        Who cares what is about is a double fine game i havent play a bad game from them even the kinects games are good .

        • nintedward

          Um, I liked the idea…..but then again, I enjoy the Toy Story concept ovlearl…..though I agree about the bankrupt nature of Hollywood in general. Taking movies made either overseas or in Ca and then rehashing them or putting the American spin on them — blech!BTW – like your last name and the artwork.

  • Gabe Hoffman

    Happy to see that Wii U is getting support from Indie developers.

  • Slacker

    nice art in this game like to play it must have game

  • Kyron

    Looking good looking good… I love platformers! can’t wait to see how intuitive and responsive the controls are going to be. Looks like its gonna be fun. Hope the difficulty will be well-balanced.

  • Nintendonoob

    Yay more Wii U support!! This game looks flippin cool!

  • Josh

    I’ll play as the hillbilly!

  • Opticine

    I love how other developers are supporting Wii U but I really want another Nintendo game confirmed.

  • The Detonator

    games looks great! platformers are my favorite kind of games! lets hope it uses the new controller well! go nintendo!

  • Lamsaturn

    This game looks awesome, I’ll be happy to add it to my collection in 2013.

  • deSSy2724

    I really like that art style graphics…. i hope the game will be good too.

  • Dmonkeyman

    the game looks cool but I still want that Pokemon MMORPG, a Metroid and a Zelda game

    • TheBoldman67

      So, basically turn Pokemon into a Skyrim-type game? (even though I don’t like pokemon, it seems like a brilliant idea).

    • Golden Fox

      Ikr? And we want Starfox and F-Zero as well!

      • Bahar

        It IS addicting. I think in this high sstres world we live in, we just don’t have enough opportunities to get our aggressions out. Kind of reminds me of Michael Douglas’ character in the movie Falling Down. Dude definitely needed some Wii Boxing!

  • Bravyoura

    Not really bothered about the endless stream of e shop titles by small developers I want AAA exclusives by 3rd party developers. The only e shop announcement I’m hoping for is more consoles are being added to the virtual console, how about arcade machines using the game pad touch screen for buttons.

  • LibertyZero

    I choose the knight!

  • Ledreppe

    This is good news, I may play it one day but I really want original Double Fine graphic adventure games on the Wii U, just as DFP said they would develop for the Wii U.

  • Nintentionally

    This looks better than NSMBU! (but hopefully Nintendo have deliberately kept the best parts of their games secret due to fear of too many rip offs)

    Like Dmonkeyman, I am a lot more interested in Nintendo IP and also innovative gameplay from the gamepad and the ability to play while the football is on.

  • joe

    Looks really good and it’s a platformer….I’ll be following this one….
    Oh and did someone say the Shenmue series was coming to Wii U? Or was that the voice in my head?

  • Maverick-Hunter

    My Mega man platforming skills will result in me stomping this game 😀

  • Len

    More support!!!Wii U is just getting better and better!!!

  • JJJ

    This game looks great but I hope nintendo makes another Dk Country.the wii one was awesome.

  • SteampunkJedi

    The effects look wonderful. If there’s good gameplay, it should be great.

  • Crystal

    I not to mention my pals were allcauty viewing the excellent thoughts on your site and then all of the sudden came up with an awful suspicion I had not expressed respect to the web blog owner for those tips. All the women were for that reason stimulated to read all of them and now have definitely been tapping into those things. I appreciate you for getting well accommodating and for going for certain beneficial subject areas millions of individuals are really wanting to know about. My personal honest regret for not expressing gratitude to you sooner.
