Joystiq is reporting that the Wii U eShop game, Cubemen 2, will feature online multiplayer as a few eShop games have already. What makes this particular game unique is that it will be the first game to allow Wii U owners to also play against people playing on PC, Mac, and Linux as well. This is an interesting breakthrough, especially for Nintendo, who is notorious for lacking online support a lot of the time. The game has no price yet on the Wii U’s eShop, but on Steam it’s already available for $7.99.
This isn’t the first game to feature cross-platform play as Monster Hunter 3 allowed for 3DS and Wii U owners to battle it out. But it is the first to allow for multiplayer gaming against non-Nintendo systems. Could this be the start of a new trend this generation? Would you like to see more eShop games with this feature? Or better yet, full games with cross-platform multiplayer? Sound off in the comments!
