The Clouds Bring Rumors of War on Wii U

CastleStorm will be available on the Nintendo Wii U eShop on December 26th in both North America and Europe! As kids, we built LEGO castles and smashed them to smithereens, so it’s really exciting that we’re able to bring back that feeling in the form of CastleStorm on Wii U.

 

It’s Knights vs. Vikings in CastleStorm, where medieval warfare meets 2D physics-based destruction! Controlling the battle in real time, players will harness the power of medieval artillery, manage a fearsome ground attack, and cast powerful spells! CastleStorm features a story-driven solo campaign, a custom castle editor, online multiplayer, co-op modes, and more. Building castles and knocking them down has never been so much fun!

 

Our super genre mashup makes full use of the Nintendo Wii U Gamepad, which mirrors the action being displayed on the TV, so the game is fully playable on the GamePad without TV. There is full touch control on the GamePad, except multi-touch functionalities like pinch-zoom. All functionality is available without touch as well, using the sticks and action buttons. In local multiplayer, one player uses the Pro Controller and looks at the TV, the other player uses the GamePad and plays on the gamepad screen, so both players see a full screen image.

 

 

 

The single player campaign is just the beginning! Check out our previous CastleStorm posts for details on multiplayer modes, weapons, characters and customizing your own castle.

 

The original soundtrack by Waterflame (you might recognize his work on Castle Crashers) is available for free on YouTube. CastleStorm will be available on the Wii U eShop for just $9.99 in North America and €9.99 in Europe.

    Nintendo mentions up to four players. Does that mean online battle can be 2vs2 (one player controlling castle defences and the other controlling ground forces?
