Nero, the visual novel in the works at Italian developer Storm in a Teacup, will be released on Wii U through eShop. Other platforms are to be announced, but the official website has Steam, Xbox One and 3DS logos posted. According to the studio’s creative director Carlo Bianchi, the “next-generation visual novel” will make use of the Wii U GamePad to keep the main TV screen from being cluttered with UI elements. Instead, UI options will show up on the controller’s display screen. A release date has yet to be announced, but the game was shown behind-closed-doors during GDC 2014 in March. Some screenshots and the announcement trailer from February are below. Nero has a 2015 release date targeted.
