Indie developer Curve Studios has today announced that it will be launching its sequel to the strongly received Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark as a Wii U exclusive.
Speaking to Gamespot, Marketing Manager Rob Clarke noted that the Wii U represented a strong opportunity for indie developers, due to the support Nintendo offered.
As an indie publisher we always fight with AAA for space on the storefront. With Nintendo, we know they’re gonna support us. We also know that we’re not having to compete with, say, Watch Dogs for example.
Game director Jonathan Biddle emphasised that while the Wii U was a strong platform due to the more open playing field, the gamepad was also a draw for Curve Studios.
It’s also good to be on the platform that’s got all these unique features. We’re gonna be supporting the gamepad, and it’s nice to stretch your design muscles a bit harder.
Stealth Inc 2 is slated for release later this year.
