It seems common these days that a game made by an independent developer will find its way to most other platforms even a year or so on. Year Walk is the latest independent game to do this as its developer Simogo has announced the game is heading to the Wii U.

For this particular version of the game Simogo is working with Dakko Dakko to ensure the game comes to the Wii U as more then just a straight port. In fact the game is a lot more then a straight port and will add several Wii U specific features, not only will it have added GamePad support for note-taking and convenient map viewing, the Wii U version will feature motion controls.

It is quite clear that the game is pretty much new for the Wii U and this is something the studio pointed out in a post on their official website, saying this:

“The game has been totally rebuilt for the platform, with the Wii U GamePad tightly integrated into the game. It’s hard to imagine that it was not made for Wii U originally – that’s how home it feels.”

At this point in time there has been no release date chosen for the Wii U version of the game, however Simogo is hoping to have the game out by the end of 2015.
