Speaking during a demo for Ron Gilbert’s upcoming adventure game The Cave, a Double Fine representative told Joystiq that the title will be released on Nintendo’s Wii U eShop, in addition to the previously announced digital platforms; XBLA, PSN, and PC.
The Cave was not shown running on the Wii U, so it’s currently unknown if there will have any platform specific differences on the Nintendo version of the game.
If you have not been keeping up with the title, The Cave starts by having players pick three characters from a cast of seven (The Twins, The Knight, The Scientist, The Adventurer, The Time Traveler, The Hillbilly, and The Monk). Each character has their own unique abilities, and players will need to switch between the three they picked in order to solve the game’s 2D puzzles, and progress through the adventure.
Check out The Cave‘s announcement trailer below, and look for it to hit the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U sometime in “early 2013”.
