WayForward Technologies Working On Multiplatform Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3 Game


A LinkedIn profile belonging to a Games Director at WayForward Technologies indicates that the development studio is working on a multiplatform title for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.


While we have no indication of what this multiplatform title could be, WayForward have publicly announced two Wii U games that they are working on.


The first is Mighty Switch Force HD, which will be ready for the Wii U’s launch as a downloadable game. This is a high-definition version of Mighty Switch Force that will have redrawn sprites and new features not present in the 3DS version.


The other is a new Shantae game. WayForward owner, Voldi Way, mentioned this game in an interview he gave at E3 2012. The Shantae game, too, was originally considered for release around the time of the Wii U launch, but has been pushed back.
