Italian indie developer Storm in a Teacup has announced that its new project Nero is coming to the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. Described as a next-generation visual novel, the game is also in development for other platforms, but the Wii U version will contain elements that utilize the Wii U GamePad. For example, user interface icons will be laid out on the controller’s touch screen, rather than obstructing the player’s view on the main display.
“NERO is a wonderful journey in a world of incredible beauty where a kid is the key to all locks and the night is not as frightening as we all could think,” reads the game’s official description. “NERO is about love. NERO is about faith. NERO is about feelings. NERO is about questions that need answers.”
