Indie Metroidvania "Rex Rocket" Coming To Wii U!

Metroidvania games are some of the most enjoyable action adventure games ever produced and the indie market has produced some of the best in recent memory. From Cave Story to Aquaria, it's hard to deny the charm and sense of exploration offered by this style of game. Personally, I find myself searching out every game of this style with many ending up as some of my favorite games ever made.

This brings us to Rex Rocket which is being developed by Castle Pixel who has just become a licensed Nintendo developer. With this license, Castle Pixel has confirmed that Rex Rocket will be coming to the Wii U eShop in 2014. The game has a delightful retro visual style and its gameplay is a fusion of Mega Man and Metroid. After a successful Kickstarter campaign which funded its development for PC, the development team made it clear that they wanted to bring the game to as many systems as it could including Linux, Nintendo 3DS, Ouya and the Wii U. If you are a Metroidvania fan, Rex Rocket is sure to be a must have for your collection. Enjoy!
