Presumably this will go live at midnight on Wii U, so it should be the first version available, if that influences anyone's decision of which to buy :P

I forgot was the PST or EST? They might come late hope not, but don't jinx it. :D

Capcom seems to think MonHun will be late for eShop, like Nintendo would allow a screw up like that? yes they would :(

Quotes from the web seem to suggest "NO". It's very light on WiiU features, using the gamepad only to select characters for use on the full screen.

...you can see how the WiiPad plays into the game. It's essentially a glorified character selector and camera controller by tapping on a character, you'll jump to them; by tapping on a character twice, you can switch the camera focus to them. In The Cave, characters cannot move independently off-screen.

Thanks for the response. That is a bit of a let down, but I'll probably get the wii u version anyway

I've been thinking about it but I'm still unsure. The hillbilly and the twins seem to be the ones most talked about pre-release, so I might actually hold off on them on my first playthrough. I will definitely go with the knight, though. Along with the knight, maybe I'll do the time traveller and...the monk or adventurer (the scientist for whatever reason is the one I'm feeling the least). So not totally sure, but that's how I'm leaning right now, it could change when I go to the select screen.

I think I have to wait and hear what you guys think, I started out surprised that there was any adventure game pedigree to this at all, but my expectations for that have been taken down for it being that kind of game.

I have no idea about characters or abilities or whatever. As usual I've gone blind in to the game. Too many other adventure games to play before it, yet I will set aside some time to play The Cave simply because it is Double Fine and Gilbert.

Yet I can't help but be more excited at the fact that I am about to play Kentucky Route Zero and The Walking Dead. Hopefully I will finish KRZ's first act before The Cave is released in a few days. The Walking Dead can wait.

Odd that DF isn't self-publishing on Steam.

According to Nintendo's product listing, this is false. Sega is publishing on Wii U.

It's strange, though. Being light on GamePad features should make a game more likely to have Off TV play. Maybe Joystiq just missed something?

If the touchscreen functions are not needed to play, then apparently it's just a few lines of code that lets the primary display switch screens.

Perhaps the budget for the game was tiny, so they only had time to get it running(tbh it actually coming out on the Wii U is enough for me).

I thought it only took a line of code to get a game streaming on Gamepad?

Anyway has anyone checked the eShop?

The Cave has moved into position with the "New" listed if you press the "See all" bar at the bottom it is listed first, most games getting ready to launch always seem to move from last listed to first spot... "BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2" is now the last game on page 3

No Front Page graphic yet, and I don't like the icon we will get for this game :(

Apparently it has an old school point and click mode like Ron Gilbert's classics, and you'll be able to deck it out with all those fancy IQ enhancements. At least that's why I'm getting it on Steam.

Heavily featured in the Giantbomb quick look. They control the same as every other character.

Ron also confirmed in the QL that you can only select characters and the camera on the gamepad. No off screen play.

IGN didn't post a favorable preview of this game back in December: http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/12/...he-wii-u-eshop

Has the game been fixed since then? Can anyone answer their concerns?
