XSEED Games and Magnetic Realms were excited to announce that the exploration-driven sci-fi platformer, Exile’s End, has arrived on Wii U via the Nintendo eShop.
This title, for those unaware, is a dark and futuristic 2D sidescroller offering up puzzles, platforming, and dangerous extraterrestrials. It has drawn heavy inspiration from the ’90s action-adventure classics, and boasts uniquely stylized cutscenes, multiple endings, and an atmospheric soundtrack by Keiji Yamagishi.

Numerous soldiers eject from the crashing ship via escape pods, but only one seems to make landfall relatively unscathed: an old, embittered private named Jameson. In his efforts to restore communications on the planet, he ends up discovering the remains of the mining colony and learns a truth far more sinister than he ever could have imagined…
