Kerbal Space Program Taking Off On Wii U With Exclusive Controls

Kerbal Space Program, the space launch and flight simulation from developer Squad, will be coming to Wii U. In addition, those who play it on Wii U will be able to use exclusive controls available only on the system’s GamePad.  

Because of these exclusive controls, the Wii U version of Kerbal Space Program is the only version to include unique features. “We feel we have the definitive version on Wii U because of our interface,” Nintendo's Damon Baker, senior marketing manager of publisher and developer relations, tells us. “You’ll be able to utilize the touchscreen and the GamePad in a number of different ways from actually building the spacecraft and navigating the spacecraft and even getting different perspectives. You’ll be able to fly the spacecraft from the cockpit utilizing the GamePad as a different viewpoint.”

The title is currently available on Steam. While no release date has been given, Kerbal Space Program will release simultaneously on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U.
