3D Earthbound Inspired RPG Coming To Wii U eShop


Indie developer Ackkstudios has announced that they’re hard at work developing a 3D RPG inspired by Earthbound and The World Ends With You for the Wii U eShop. The codename for the game is Project Y2K. Not too much is known about the game, but the developer has created a teaser site for the forthcoming RPG. Here’s what the development team have been up to.

Before we begin to show more too much from this project, we feel it’s important that people know that Two Brothers is still our main project.We began Project Y2K before we started Two Brothers and put it on hold to finish Two Brothers, as it was a smaller project.

Everyone who has completed work on Two Brothers is now working on Project Y2K… so that’s about a third of the AckkStudios Team.

Now that Two Brothers is nearing completion, we felt it was time to return to Project Y2K.

Project Y2K currently exists in a few forms… concept art, a finalized script/story line, a completed graphics/gameplay engine.

As for the title Project Y2K, we can tell you that the reason we’ve chosen this project name is because the game will begin January 1st 1999 at 12:02 AM…

Thanks, Emily
