CastleStorm flings itself onto Wii U on December 26

Monday, 16th December 2013 16:41 GMT By Dave Owen

Although it was all but confirmed that CastleStorm would arrive on Wii U in December, we now know for sure. Zen Studios has confirmed that the tower defense game will hit the Nintendo eShop on December 26, so you can play it while stuffing down your Christmas leftovers

It’ll cost £9.99, and will utilise the GamePad for both remote play and touch-screen controls (although the game will be completely playable with just buttons and sticks, if that’s what you prefer). There’ll be a solo campaign, castle editor, online multiplayer, and co-op modes. Local multiplayer will allow one gamer to play on the GamePad, while another uses the TV and a Wii U Pro Controller.

On other systems the game has had a couple of DLC packs, From Outcast to Saviour and The Warrior Queen, but there’s no word of these arriving on Wii U just yet.

Thanks, Nintendo Life.

    After christmas? Well that is just odd. No one will be in the buying mood, considering. They will be in the recovering from stuffing lots of food in face mood then. Or playing/using presents mood. But buying more? Nah.

    Fun Fact: You can Buy the Game even after that Date.

    I know i’m just simply implying it looks like a missed opportunity to cash in on the digital Christmas presents/shopping spree.

    No need to be a smartass.
