I hope I wasn’t alone in feeling my heart break when the news arrived that developer GalaxyTrail’s upcoming Wii U title Freedom Planet was being delayed. The platformer bears a striking resemblance to that wonderful time in history when Sonic games could do no wrong. The visuals, too, are reminiscent of the Blue Blur’s halcyon days, but GalaxyTrail certainly doesn’t seem content to merely replicate Sega’s mascot’s signature play style. Along with running, anticipate doing lots of riding, whacking, and anything else that could make a TV screen explode with color and excitement. Sounds great, right? Well, we’ve been waiting to see when we’d be able to find out one way or the other how Freedom Planet stacks up, and now there appears to be a timetable.
Website Shigeru Reviews posted a capture of a brief Twitter exchange in which GalaxyTrail offhandedly declares that the game will be coming to Wii U… this month! Good to hear, and hopefully when the title hits the eShop it’ll be good to play, too. If you’re wondering where all this anticipation is coming from, treat your eyes to the trailer below, and prepare to begin counting the minutes until Freedom Planet drops!
