Freedom Planet Coming to Wii U eShop "Soon"

Not Sonic, but it comes pretty close.

Freedom Planet, a combat-based platforming adventure game inspired by Sonic the Hedgehog, will be coming to the Wii U eShop. This was announced by developer GalaxyTrail at this year’s PAX East.

Freedom Planet saw its original release on Steam last year, and below is a full rundown of the game, taken from its Steam page:

“Freedom Planet is a combat-based platform adventure that pits a spunky dragon girl and her friends against an alien attack force. There’s trouble around every turn, from insects to giant robots to sheer explosive destruction, but you’ll have a variety of special fighting abilities to blast your way through each stage.

As Lilac, you can use Dragon powers to whip enemies with your hair, spin like a cyclone, or fly through the air at high speed like a comet.
As Carol, you can bust through foes with a flurry of punches and kicks or summon motorcycles that let you ride up walls and ceilings.
