Unity Games Brings Popular Wii U™ Platformer to Nintendo’s Latest Generation of Handheld Game Consoles
Unity Games, the game publishing division of Unity Technologies Japan, today announced that the first game in their portfolio, Wind-up Knight 2, is now available for the New Nintendo 3DS™ and 3DS™ XL. With the help of Unity Games, Robot Invader’s Wind-up Knight 2 made its debut on the Wii U™ System last year, which followed widespread success on the Android and iOS mobile platforms where it remains one of the most popular games globally. Unity Games has comprehensively updated the game to ensure a fast-paced, challenging and entirely enjoyable platforming experience on the Nintendo’s latest generation of handheld game consoles. Wind-up Knight 2 is now available for the New Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL systems for $5.00 U.S.D..
Unity Games is committed to partnering with talented indie studios from around the world in an effort to identify and introduce exceptional titles to gaming audiences on new platforms. Wind-up Knight 2’s continued popularity on both the Wii U and mobile platforms combined with the game’s on-the-go accessibility as well as its whimsical style, and engaging gameplay are the perfect match for the New Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL systems.
“Wind-up Knight 2 truly exemplifies the flexibility and diversity of the Unity engine’s capabilities and we’re thrilled to introduce the game to the handheld fans of the New Nintendo 3DS,” said Yukimi Shimura, Strategic Contents Manager and Producer of Unity Games. “Our goal is to empower development teams with the power of the Unity engine, allowing teams to be more creative and generate more compelling gameplay experiences. Wind-up Knight 2’s clever platforming, fantastic character design, humorous narrative and beautiful visuals are a result of the development team’s ability to focus on those very important design and gameplay elements that engage users and, most importantly, create fans.”
Wind-up Knight 2 is a crafty and inspiring platform game where players control (well, try to) Sir Sprint, a clockwork knight tasked with completing a host of increasingly diabolical challenges. Armed with a powerful sword and a stout shield, this not-so-obvious, wind-up cavalier must double-jump, duck & roll, attack and block his way to save the princess in a beautifully rendered world filled with humorous hazards and inventive obstacles. The catch? Sir Sprint never stops…literally. Players must collect coins, discover secrets, use special abilities, purchase powerful new equipment all in an effort to achieve better rankings and conquer level-specific goals. With more than 40 levels, an all-new Tournament mode with leaderboards, multitudes of secrets and power-ups, unique stage challenges and much more, Wind-up Knight 2 is guaranteed to offer a near endless amount of whimsical fun and soul-crushing challenge for the New Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL systems.
Wind-up Knight 2 is now available in North America on the New Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL systems for $5.00 U.S.D. To learn more about Wind-up Knight 2, please visit the official website at windupknight2.com.
