Mars Harpoon has the look of a game that belongs on the Wii U eShop. With the booming indie scene right now, it makes sense for every indie developer to try and get their game on the Wii U eShop, as it has been very successful for many companies so far. After the recent announcement of Mars Harpoon, we contacted developer Seductive Dungeon to ask about a Wii U version. We are happy to confirm that they have just been approved as Wii U developers, and Mars Harpoon will be coming to the Wii U.
Mars Harpoon is a 2-D side scrolling action game that has you blasting through waves of huge creatures in maze-like caverns. The game seems to draw inspiration from the classic 2D Metroid games, which is a very positive thing. Details are a bit scant as the game is very early in development, but stick with Nintendo Enthusiast for updates on this project as they become available.
