Knytt Underground has been made available for fans to buy from the Nintendo eShop for Wii U this week.  The colorful (in more ways than one) 2D platformer/adventure is the brainchild of Nicklas ‘Nifflas’ Nygren, and it is being developed for the Wii U platform by Mathias Kærlev of MP2.

Nifflas: The game was originally released on PlayStation 3, PS Vita, PC, Mac & Linux last year; Nifflas is proud to say that the Wii U game is the best looking version – and is the only console version to include the Infinity Hype update which makes an already huge game even bigger.

The game is set to puts you in the shoes of Mi – a mute, but extraordinary sprite. The game promises over 1,800 intricately designed rooms to explore, even more secrets to discover, quests to embark on and rooms to uncover, and an exclusive game update titled “Infinity Hype” that brings improvements and changes based on fan feedback from Reddit. Additionally, new graphical effects and flourishes promise to make the Wii U version the best looking console version of the game and, thanks to the Nintendo GamePad, players will be able to view the map easily, seeing where you’ve explored and where you have yet to venture.

If you’re interested, you can download the game from Nintendo eShop on December 19th, 2013 for £7.99 / $12.99 / €8.99.

Nifflas: “But don’t play in front of your granny on Christmas Day – she might be offended by some of the language!”
