Poncho is pixelated puzzle platformer, which was announced for Wii U quite a while ago. It takes place in a desolate open world, and you don’t have anyone to guide you. To progress through the “levels”, you have to shift between the background, middle ground, and foreground: a unique gameplay mechanic which is showcased in the trailer below.
Here’s the main features:
- Help a little robot find his creator and restore humanity in this sprawling 2D puzzle platforming adventure
- Explore a charming and atmospheric post-apocalyptic world brought to life by gorgeous pixel art
- Shift between the background and foreground to solve puzzles and discover new paths
- Upgrade your abilities to reach whole new areas and items
Yesterday, the developers finally revealed the release date for the Wii U version of Poncho: August 18th in Europe and North America… that’s right, next week!
Here’s a trailer for the game, along with some screenshots:
