I have to admit, when I first reported about the game “Poncho” last week, I thought, “oh, here’s another cute indie platformer, that’s exactly what the Wii U needs…” But now that I’ve seen the first footage of Poncho on the Wii U, it actually looks like a pretty cool game. Sure, it’s very “indie” with its pixelated visuals and beep-beep sound design, but it looks like a fun game. The levels look well-designed, with some nice parallax backgrounds with interestsing 3D layers, where players can jump to the background, accessing a whole new area of the level. Check out the video above. Poncho launches on the Wii U today. It retails for $10 on the eShop. local_offer Nintendo Poncho wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros.
