CastleStorm has lined up its forces of knights and maidens to rush the Wii U eShop on December 26 in North America and Europe, for $10 and €10, respectively. The Wii U version is playable completely on the Gamepad alone. It's a castle-building and -destroying physics game with battles against dragons and giant creatures and all manner of medieval things.
CastleStorm is already available on Steam, PSN and Xbox Live. The German ratings board listed CastleStorm for Wii U in August.
The clouds of war are gathering on the Nintendo Wii U as super genre mashup CastleStorm is making its way to the eShop on December 26, 2013 in North American for $9.99 and in Europe for €9.99.
CastleStorm makes full use of the Nintendo Wii U Gamepad, which mirrors the action being displayed on the TV allowing the game to be fully playable on the GamePad without a TV. All functionality is available without touch as well, using the sticks and action buttons. In local multiplayer, one player uses the Pro Controller and looks at the TV, the other player uses the GamePad and plays on the Gamepad screen.
