The lights are on
Mighty Switch Force 2 is available now on 3DS, and WayForward has announced that much like its predecessor, the sequel will be making its way to Wii U.
Developer WayForward was not able to offer a release date for the Wii U version of the game saying only, "By popular request, we're releasing Mighty Switch Force! 2 on Wii U (eShop). Now you can get the same great game for either 3DS or Wii U. Estimated arrival: October 2013," on its blog.
I would love to see more DS and 3DS games make their way over to the Wii U. The similar control schemes could lead the way for something like, oh I don't know, HD versions of the DS Castlevania games? Just an idea.

Interesting change of pace there- from handheld to console.
I might have to get both of these games.
I want Fire Emblem Awakening to be ported to Wii U. SO I can play it more.
Looks like an interesting game.
Sweet. I'll buy this game on the Wii U eShop then. I still haven't played the original, though, but i'm going to buy it on the Wii U eShop sometime in the future.
Mighty Switch Force For Everyone!!!
The first is great, I may get this on the Wii U.
Cool, I just downloaded this for my 3DS the other day, great game, I highly recommend both Mighty Switch Force titles. Still on the topic of WayForward, I also highly recommend Shantae for the Gameboy Color (recently added to the 3DS virtual console) and its sequel Shantae: Risky's Revenge for the DSiWare (fyi all DSiWare titles are on the 3DS eshop). There's a third game in the series coming this fall to the eShop as well which I'm excited for. Wayforward has become one of my favorite developers in the last year.
WII U should have been named PII U. because Nintendo stinks these days.
I bought the first one not to long ago and it felt too damn short. I hope this one isn't short either, but for 6 bucks you can't expect much.
