While it looks like the planned Wii U version of Alwa’s Awakening is cancelled, some of the team’s work is technically still coming to a Nintendo platform. To celebrate the indie game’s release on Steam, the developers are releasing a limited run of the game’s soundtrack on NES cartridges. It’s certainly a unique idea, the cartridge literally plugging into an NES system to play the game’s chiptune music.
