Over the past few days we’ve seen several indie games announced for the Wii U. One of the developers behind The Next Penelope, a game similar to F-Zero has been sharing developer logs of the game on YouTube, which you can find above. Currently there’s no concrete Wii U release for the game planned, but GoNintendo took the time to ask if this is a game we could eventually see brought to the Wii U. The developer’s reply was rather encouraging:

Would you like to see The Next Penelope available on the Wii U? Hit up his Twitter account and let him know that this is a game you would play if it were released on the console. Remember, some of the best Wii U eShop releases have been ported by other studios than the original developer. Unepic is a great example of such a game.

    Looks cool. I’ll keep my eyes on this one

    Looks good and all, but I’ve kind of already reserved a spot in my surrogate F-zero section for Fast Neo.

    • MetroidZero

      Same. Fast Neo looks promising.

  • TheBoldman67

    I’d much rather just have F-Zero. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it looks okay, but, I’ve been waiting 10 years now for another F-Zero game. F-Zero GX has to be my all time favorite game, I’d give up Mario Kart 8 for a new, full fledged, F-Zero game, with all of the new features the Wii U has to offer, like 5 player multiplayer, online multiplayer, HD, and the good ol’ charm and fun of F-Zero would EASILY make for a masterpiece.

    • MetroidZero

      100% Agree.

      • TaintedXGamer

        100% isn’t enough….. 500%!!!!!

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      Wow wow easy dude, give up Mario Kart 8? NEVER!

      • Shota


  • Javy G

    That ship looks oddly familiar…

  • C.S. Bailey

    Games are games, I really don’t care where they come from.

  • Sam

    F-ZERO!!!! WE don’t want knock-offs!!!!! It’s another FAST Racing league. Everyone copies off of F-ZERO because its so great, so why won’t Nintendo make another one? Same thing with Star Fox.

  • McBlink

    Every time I see the name Penelope I think of this. This needs to be a game.

  • Will the3rd

    I don’t care about indie games, they are a complement to consoles,so far, I want a F-Zero, in a box, with a budget much bigger than this game…

    • David Trail

      Indie games are awesome. I used to think the same. Now I am more interested in them than a lot of main titles. They are fresh and exciting!

  • discuss

    another indie ….
    his voice is annoying

  • FutureFox

    Is Wii U becoming the knock-off game console? Metroid is already being basically ripped-off twice over (Reven and Ghost Song), now you have FAST and this. May as well come out with Muppets StarFrog starring kermit. Sad thing is I know some poor soul out there would actually like to see that, smh.

  • Kinhas

    Just bring carmageddon to the WII U!

  • alex toschi

    I appreciate the Indies but they really are starting to blend. There are only a few stand out titles that I’m looking forward to.

  • Diaz

    It looks pretty good

  • Daniel Schwarz

    I don’t say this about every Indy title that is shown off these days either coming to the Wii U or not, but this game looks really great. I’m definitely interested!

  • kevin nun—-

    On other news, with less than a day of being opened Mario Kart 8 preorders sell out on Amazon

  • NkoSekirei

    i know this is off topic but wii u version ghost finally gets dlc free fall map for free with big patch

  • kevin nun—-

    How is the big update for ghosts on Wiiu not on wiiudaily?!

  • RyuNoHadouken

    Nintendo Indiecube

  • palomino blue

    I really wasn’t sold on this until I saw the boss battles. I am really luke-warm about racing games like this but I am a huge fan of R-Type/rail shooters and some of those shots remind me of titles like Blazing Star and Ikaruga.
