Two Tribes have announced that they’re bringing an updated of the original Sword & Soldiers to Wii U to tide everyone over until the release of Sword & Soldiers II. The team says they’ve upgraded the game so it feels right at home on the Wii U GamePad, in addition to taking advantage of the HD capabilities of the sytem.

Sword and Soldiers is Ronimo Games’ break out indie title that launched the studio into the success they’ve seen since it original released. The game follows the Viking’s quest to make the ultimate barbeque sauce and along the way, players can command troops of berserkers, dart blowers, ninja monkeys and more.

Here’s the full list of features:

  • The classic Swords & Soldiers experience.
  • Playable with custom touch scheme on Gamepad.
  • Playable with Wii remote on TV.
  • Multiplayer mode combining GamePad and TV.
  • High res HD graphics compared to SD Wii release.
  • Expected release end of April / Early May.
  • Low TBA introduction price.
  • The ultimate BBQ sauce.

Right now there’s no official release date, but the team hopes to have it ready by April or May. According to the official blog post of the announcement, the game is currently undergoing localization and bug testing. We’ll let you know when the final release date and price for the title have been announced.

    I may be interested depenging on the cost. I have not played the first one but it looks interesting

  • MerryBlind .

    That’s great!!! I said about a month ago before the sequel was announced, that the first one would be a perfect fit on Wii U! Glad to see they’re using the GamePad properly, especially the “Multiplayer mode combining GamePad and TV” part.

    Will definitely get it. CastleStorm is great on Wii U, and it’s the same kind of game.

    I hope the game will support Pro Controller though for those who would prefer that (no reasons not to since the game is on PS3 and 360). I wish CastleStorm supported WiiMote too; it’s on PC too, so WiiMote would function the same as a mouse+KB.

    I’m up for buying it. I’m loving Castle Storm and I think this is similar

    If only more people realized that indie support is a great thing

    • Magnus Eriksson

      I think most people can agree on that. But indies alone is not enough to drive sales. I would never have bought my Wii U for the price I did if I knew that it would be an indie-only platform. On the opposite. I dont feel like supporting indies at all on this platform because I was tricked into believing that it was to be something its clearly not. And I start to feel that Nintendo is quite a crappy company that gives all the responsibility to drive sales over to indie devs, when they really should have invested money into bringing AAA games to the platform instead. If indies didnt support this console Nintendo would have what they deserved, either that or get some sort of motivation to support it properly. As it is now, with the support it got, Wii U isnt worth more than half its price.

        I agree, kinda, I still love the Wii U but enough with the indies and VC crap. I want great games. I know we have all heard this before, but man, after seeing all the other cool ass games going out to the xbox and PS4, I just want something great for the Wii U. Mario Kart and Smash can’t come soon enough. The Wii U fanboys (I am one) are always saying the Wii U is more powerful then people give it credit for, well, lets see it, I want some great games and I want them soon!

      • Ducked

        I don’t think it sells systems, but it does give Wii U owners more games. I do agree, Nintendo has been lazy on its ass lately when it comes to going after third parties.

        I think the Wii U is worth the price XP. For Smash Bros alone even

    • Shane Michaels

      Frankly, 3rd Party for the Wii U is actually pretty good, all things considered. They dont have support from the major developers like EA, 2K, Rocksteady, and others, but for the most part, they’ve gotten a game from everyone, with Ubisoft still there, albeit dwindling, and Activision still giving us plenty of games. Nintendo is a sleeping giant, populated by tiny humans. Other giants are leaving it be, but once Nintendo awakes, they will join… In the meantime…:

      OH GOSH TRIPLE POST. Someone teach me how to work a gif on this bloody place.

  • Cyberus

    Ecgh, ecgh, just go back to that bird thing you were doing before. Wasn’t impressive b eh, at least it was consistent

  • Capt. Smoker

    Oh goodie…. pinch me… I’m dreaming, Will I ever wake… =_=

    • The Clockwork Being

      hey Kotoura-san! Really liked the show. But yeah Kotoura’s face is definitely the face I’m doing right now.

    Have you ever imagined playing an old classic that you loved and wanted it to be online to show off your skills or even play with friends and family that live to far away to play the game with them. Imagine Super Mario World with online and voice chat, Mario kart with online and voice chat or even super smash bros! from N64 with online multiplayer and voice chat the list can go on and on this can be something that I know will be a hit! We together can make this happen if we show nintendo that we really want this! This would be amazing!
