XSeed Games is bringing their cool retro-looking side scrolling action game Exile’s End to the Wii U eShop next week, with the game landing on Nintendo’s digital service on November 22nd.
Exile’s End is a collaboration between Tokyo-based independent game developer Matt Fielding and several talented Japanese game industry veterans, backed by Japanese publisher Marvelous. The game is a remake of Fielding’s first independent release, Inescapable, building and expanding on the original idea by adding an atmospheric soundtrack, significantly more enemies, animated cutscenes, greater story depth, a greatly expanded world, and multiple endings.
The game plays out as an exploration-driven side-scrolling adventure through a massive, interconnected laboratory and mining complex on a moody, lonely alien world, and offers a variety of diverse locations to explore and puzzles to solve through skilled platforming and clever usage of the game’s myriad weapons.
Exile’s End features an enormous, interconnected world of over 1,200 screens to explore, featuring adventure-style puzzles mixed with intense platforming action, all connected with animated cutscenes.
The game also featuers a soundtrack by Keiji Yamagishi, legendary composer for Ninja Gaiden (NES), Tecmo Super Bowl, Dynasty Warriors, and numerous other classic games. The art and graphics are done by by Japanese industry legends whose works include Sword of Mana, and Guilty Gear.
The game was released for both the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita at the end of October, with the release for the Wii U set for November 22nd. The game will retail for $12.99 CAD when it arrives.
