Freedom Planet is headed for the Wii U eShop

If you’ve been wishing that Freedom Planet (review) came to another platform besides the PC, well, you’re partially in luck: GalaxyTrail’s Stephen DiDuro announced at PAX East 2015 that the game will also be landing on the Wii U eShop later this year.

This is particularly interesting, given the game was created using Clickteam’s Multimedia Fusion (now known as Clickteam Fusion). This software is typically not supported by the Wii U, but it would appear that GalaxyTrail has enlisted the help of Chowdren to help them port Freedom Planet over. Chowdren’s developer, Mathias Kærlev, tweeted this shortly after the announcement:

Chowdren also supports the ability to port Clickteam Fusion games to the Nintendo 3DS, Playstation Vita and Playstation 4. Currently, Freedom Planet has only been announced to appear on the Wii U, but at least the potential is there, should the need arise.
