The Wii U already has a long list of indie projects scheduled for the future, so it’s no surprise that yet another Kickstarter project is looking to lengthen it. RPG title Liege is hoping to come to the Wii U eShop, and its recent update has confirmed Nintendo’s approval, but it just needs a little extra boost to secure it on the home console.
Inspired by Fire Emblem and chess, Coda Games’ Liege is a tactical role-playing game based in a fantasy Kingdom. After the Royal family are mysteriously plunged into a never-ending slumber, the Kingdom of Liege is planted head-first into a civil war. Currently, the project has successfully reached its $15,000 goal and will be funded on July 28. But with over $46,000 raised, the game’s developer John Rhee has added a Wii U stretch goal for the final four days.
In his recent update, Rhee says the Wii U version would need to hit $48,000 to see its development, but an additional $3,000 – to mark a $51,000 total – would provide extra support on the console. He also mentions the Wii U version would be released later than its original PC, Mac, iOS and Android platforms. Make sure you check out the gameplay introduction above to see if you’re interested, and if so, you can back the project here.
“Since the approval came later in our campaign, the Wii U release will happen a little after the release for our other platforms. This is to ensure we don’t delay our current schedule by adding the Wii U onto our list.” –John Rhee, Coda Games
