There may not be much to play on the Wii U eShop so far, but there are plenty of indie games on their way. One such game is Sync, an FPS that plans to follow in the footsteps of Metroid Prime. Recently, developer Dead Pixel spoke to Nintendo Enthusiast about its upcoming game in more detail and its ambitions to revive what it calls a dead genre. Here’s what it had to say:

Sync is a Sci Fi First Person Adventure similar to the Metroid Prime series. We, at Dead Pixel, believe anyone who loves the Prime series will love Sync for it’s open world gameplay and unique item collection. Players are thrown into a mechanical world where robots have become the dominant species. Players are tasked with locating data stations and uploading a deadly virus to destroy Sync, a computer system, from the inside. Given orders from an unknown group that calls itself Gensys. The player must focus his/her efforts on finding these terminals with little direction to complete their mission.”

The game is only two weeks into development, but the header image shows that it’s making progress fast. Currently, Dead Pixel is looking to finish the game by the end of the year, and will release the game exclusively on Wii U. When the studio was asked about why it chose Wii U, Dead Pixel said that it was because Nintendo is an entity that the studio respects.

“We chose the Wii U for that reason exactly. The visuals are fantastic. Control options are limitless. It has the Nintendo Seal of Quality. We believe our games will benefit from the Wii U more so than they will from the PS4 or the XB-ONE.”

While there is not enough substantial information on Sync at the moment, I’m looking forward to hearing more about this game in the future. Are you excited for Sync? Let us know in the comments below!

    The developers are very ambitious to aim for a launch by the end of this year. Best of luck to them not encountering any delays. I’ll have to keep my eye on this.
