Wii U Game That Was Once Forgotten Will Come to Nintendo Switch in the Near Future

Nintendo launched Wii U back in 2012. Wii U was a very interesting console and its dual-functioning feature set really helped it stand apart from the competition. All its features and graphic fidelity did not appeal much to Nintendo’s fanbase. But it paved a way for Nintendo Switch.

Before its launch and during its initial days, a number of companies announced numerous games for this console, but most of them canceled those games once Wii U failed to catch success.

However, after years, it appears that one of those games is finally seeing the light of day on a different console.

Another Wii U game is making its way to Nintendo Switch

Nintendo’s Wii U was a special console. Its gamepad itself stood out amongst those typical PlayStation and Xbox controllers. It had a huge display that allowed users to play games without sitting in front of the TV. Its gamepad also allowed developers to add a number of experimental features to it. Its touch screen and gyro sensors allowed for numerous second-screen features to be implemented to it.

But once it flopped, all those developers decided to move on to other consoles. Wii U ports of many popular games were canceled. And one of those games was Gunscape. This unique first-person and world-building hybrid game by Blowfish launched on most platforms in 2016.

The game was met with a mixed reception at launch and was not very successful financially. Maybe that’s why the developer decided to save money rather than spending resources on an unsuccessful console.

But now it has been revealed that Gunscape is finally fulfilling its promise of appearing on a Nintendo console by coming to Switch.

The Switch version was also teased for a 2017 release, but then the developers simply stopped talking about it. But now the developer has finally announced that Gunscape would be coming to Nintendo Switch on February 1, 2023.
