In early 2014, developer MixedBag announced Forma.8 for Wii U. Since then, the “Metroidvania” title has seen a bit of a delay, but the developer took to Twitter today to announce that the title is finally nearing completion. Additionally, MixedBag announced that a 3DS version of forma.8 is due later in the year, and will support cross-buy.
The title is not the first game to support cross-buy between Nintendo’s two systems, but it is one of just a handful to do so. Fans have clamored for more support of the option, particularly in regards to the Virtual Console. While fans still can’t purchase titles such as Super Mario World on Wii U and play them on 3DS, more indie titles seem to be allowing just that. The recently announced Severed also supports the option. Hopefully more titles will continue to do so in the near future.
