WayForward Technologies original released Mighty Switch Force for the Nintendo 3DS and eventually brought an HD version of the game to the Wii U. Then, they created Mighty Switch Force 2 for 3DS, but plans to bring this game to Wii U didn’t exist… at least, not initially.
“On Miiverse, the Mighty Switch Force community has been very vocal about bringing Mighty Switch Force 2 to the Wii U,” WayForward’s James Montagna shared with Siliconera at PAX Prime.
“We had no intentions of bringing it to the Wii U, originally. [Mighty Switch Force: Hyperdrive Edition] was an experiment, something we just wanted to try out—but [because of feedback] we are bringing Mighty Switch Force 2 to the Wii U. We caved.”
Additionally, Montagna shared, Mighty Switch Force 2 on the Wii U won’t be exactly like the first game. “It’s a pixel version of the game with high-definition interstitial screens, so it won’t be quite like Hyperdrive Edition or anything like that,” he revealed to us, adding that WayForward hope to have the game out in October.
Montagna also shared some insight into Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse with us, when we spoke. You can read about that game here.
