Facepalm Games' clever puzzle platformer, The Swapper, has already won over fans on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita. Now it's coming to Wii U.

Curve Digital, which has developed a reputation for porting well-regarded indie games like Thomas Was Alone and Lone Survivor over to consoles, announced on Twitter that it's managing the Wii U port of The Swapper. For the uninitiated, The Swapper is a 2D platforming puzzle game that challenges players to use a cloning device to solve a series of environmental puzzles as they try to find out what happened on a derelict space ship.

Our Take
Since most of Nintendo's big announcements that came out of E3 are 2015 titles, it's nice to see some indies try and fill the relatively barren release schedule for the Wii U. Mario Kart 8 gave the console a much-needed sales boost, and to continue the upward growth the game library will need significant expansion.
