Marvelous Europe today announced that the retro-styled 2D sci-fi platformer, Exile’s End will launch for Wii U in Europe and Australia today, Thursday 24th November for £8.99 / €9.99.

Exile’s End is a dark and futuristic 2D side-scroller offering adventure-style puzzles, tightly-controlled platforming, and dangerous extraterrestrials. The game was developed as an homage to early ’90s action-adventure PC games, drawing heavy gameplay inspiration from classics of the genre as well as thematic influence from ’80s sci-fi films and anime. Boasting uniquely stylised cutscenes, multiple endings, and an atmospheric soundtrack by Keiji Yamagishi of Ninja Gaiden and Tecmo Super Bowl fame, Exile’s End will have players investigate a massive, interconnected alien world and experience a story filled with ancient riddles and modern-day hubris.

Backed by Japanese publisher Marvelous Inc. and originally released for Windows PC, Mac and Linux via Steam, Exile’s End is a collaboration between Tokyo-based indie game developer Matt Fielding and many talented local industry veterans, including art by staff from titles such as Secret of Mana, Mother 3 and more.

Developed by Magnetic Realms and published in Europe by XSEED Games, Exile’s End enters orbit digitally today on Nintendo Wii®U for £8.99/€9.99 having launched recently on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita systems via the PlayStation®Store in Europe. This title has been rated PEGI 12, USK 6, and PG by the ACB.
