SturmFront – The Mutant War: Evil Edition came out on Nintendo Switch in early spring, but publisher Red Art Games and developer Andrade Games have certainly attracted some attention by confirming it would be released on the Wii U eShop. It was originally planned for May, but now has a final release date of July 2nd after a delay; it costs € 9.99 / $ 9.99 / £ 8.99.
As you can see in the Switch release trailer below, it’s a top-down, twin-stick shooter with lots of explosions. If you combine DOOM, Wolfenstein, and top-down-contra levels and then send them through an indie mixer, it would be pretty close to what you would get.
Of course, the Wii U eShop recently had a mini revival courtesy of the E3 reveal of Metroid horror. As the official ‘Metroid 5’, Wii U owners have picked up Metroid: Zero Mission and Metroid Fusion to catch up on the series; Switch has the option of catching up with the original NES Metroid and SNES classics Great metroid via Nintendo Switch Online, while 3DS is also home to Metroid II: Return of Samus and his latest remake, Metroid: Samus Returns. Can SturmFront topple the classics on the Wii U charts in early July? We’ll patiently wait for the system’s eShop to load and we’ll find out in a couple of weeks.
So, a new Wii U release in 2021, why not?
