Area Effect, a studio made up of Ubisoft veterans, have announced that they’re bringing their new project Izle to the Wii U eShop. The Kickstater project will launch this spring “to support the development of the Steam and Next Gen Console versions.” The game is due for release on the eShop in 2016.

“Izle invites its players to build their own world by summoning the power of the gods and terraforming a variety of islands. Each unique island is randomly created and ready for players to explore, harness abilities and forge items into endless possibilities to create new character classes. Izle is currently in its Alpha stage.”

“Developed and published by Area Effect, a studio made up of Ubisoft veterans, Izle players will use terraforming to build their own unique island worlds. Players will acquire new items and abilities and combine them into endless possibilities to create their very own class. But with great freedom comes great responsibility, and if not defended, the kingdom will be shattered by the forces of shadows.”

“Izle is truly a passion project for us, and we are so proud of the reaction we have received at its early stages. Izle is a very ambitious project that we are excited to see come to life as our development continues and as the Izle community grows and flourishes.”
