Space Hulk, a strategy game based off of the board game of the same name, was supposed to have rampaged its way to a Wii U this past spring, but sadly the game was delayed, and fans have been wondering ever since when the title would finally arrive on the console. Well, the wait is over, as publisher HR Games has stepped in to confirm that the title will be heading to the Wii U eShop this coming holiday season! Good news for a system that continues to be a magnet for indie titles, but all might not be rosey, as Space Hulk wasn’t particularly well-received by the gaming media when it dropped on PC.
Hovering in the high 50 percentile range on Metacritic, Space Hulk certainly underachieved in the eyes of critics when it launched, but there’s hope that some of the kinks will have been ironed out when the title comes to Wii U. This writer is actually curious to see how well the development team takes advantage of the GamePad, which seems like it would be a perfect fit for Space Hulk‘s gameplay; there’s a lot of potential there! Fingers crossed as we tick off the days on the calendar awaiting the game’s debut.
