Rex Rocket blasting to Wii U

Retro action platformer Rex Rocket will be coming to Wii U, Nintendolife reports. Rex Rocket's Kickstarter backers received an update confirming that Nintendo has approved developer Castle Pixel as a Wii U developer. The Wii U version should arrive "sometime after the official PC game release," which is slated for this January.

Castle Pixel's Robert Maher tells Joystiq that an iPad port is also being tested, and some of its touch features should make it into the Wii U version. Maher is also still interested in 3DS, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 ports, though they may have to wait until the Wii U version is completed.
