The latest issue of Nintendo Power revealed that WayForward Technologies plans to launch Mighty Switch Force HD for the Wii U's eShop.

A summary from that Nintendo website:

- aiming to be at launch
- sprites being redrawn
- game includes the 'bonus incident' DLC from eShop update
- may include new content as well
- new games separate from Mighty Switch Force HD in the planning phases for Wii U and 3DS
- GamePad screen displays the Hooligan Tracker
- play the game just on the Wii U GamePad, which will feature a shrunken-down Hooligan Tracker

Good news, MSF is a great game, and more people should play it.

Also good news if it's that easy to create "Universal Apps" for the Nintendo platforms.

Even though the redrawn sprites are looking great, I prefer to have 3D over HD. I hope they include new content, that way people who already bought it have an incentive to buy it again.

Why be unhappy about it? Wayforward make awesome games and have a great rapport with fans. These guys deserve your money.

Now they need to get Nintendo to let them support some sort of cross-platform buy-once game license.

This is probably because they couldn't get Shantae in time for Wii U eShop launch, huh?

Looked interesting, I was going to get on 3DS but I'll wait for Wii U.

Aaah, so that explains:

http://www.nintendojo.com/features/i...ith-wayforward

ND: Have you released games on any other digital distribution service?

Voldi: The only other one was– well iOS obviously, we did Shantae last year on Andriod. It’s only out in Korea and Japan now, weirdly, but we’re working on the US version too. And it was only because the publisher XSEED came to us and said, “Hey, can we ship Shantae in Japan and Korea? We’ll do the port,” and we’re like, “Sure.” And then, um, I think Might Switch Force is– we’re trying to get that on, it’s just– actually, I’m surprised we haven’t done that already. Oh, and then we did Mighty Flip Champs for PSP, but mostly Nintendo.

That was eating away at me as I read the interview. Pretty cool.

I agree. I'll probably buy it again, though, just to support it, I guess.

^Hope it's very different as I've completed MSF just last week (within the time limits).

Great, great game, but there has to be new stuff to make me double-dip.

Man the main character is so damned adorable. With those big angry anime eyes and being pigeon toed. Just so fucking cute.

OT, probably won't double dip. I have the 3DS version, plus the DLC levels (which were awesome), and really, I'd just like some more levels. Maybe even a level editor.

You can't post scans. It has nothing to do with the size of it.

You should probably edit your quote. lol Don't want to get poor Hiltz in trouble.

It looks... about the same, I guess. I'm sure it'll look nice on the big screen.

My only beef with this game was that i felt there wasn't a good balance between puzzles and fighting segments. Cool game overall though.

Well nothing guarantees this will be the "definitive" version. 3DS version still has some of the best use of the device's 3D.
