Today, the developers of Armikrog gave an update regarding the Wii U version of the game. They explained that development was going well, though they still have to deal with some technical issues resulting from the PC > Console conversion. Right now, their main focus is getting the controls right, and making sure they work smoothly. And in order to make the game run more efficiently on Wii U, they’re updating the artwork.

Unfortunately, they don’t have a release date right now.
