Chasing Aurora is launching first on the Wii U eShop

Indie studio Broken Rules (the minds behind 2009’s And Yet It Moves)  announced today that their newest game, Chasing Aurora, is launching on the Wii U eShop first. Due for release in late 2012, Chasing Aurora is described as “an aerial action game that is set in the thin air of the Alps.” The open-world gameplay features physics-based flight and airborne combat; and the game has a remarkable, cardboard-like art style.

In addition, there are at least 4 multiplayer modes, some of which are specifically designed to take advantage of the Wii U GamePad.

Broken Rules have released a batch of screenshots and two trailers for the game, all of which you can find after the break.

    What are you even supposed to do in this game?!

  2. I love Chasing Aurora! It’s not your usual game, but feels like playable art. The Wii U’s eShop (or whatever its name will officially be) opening its doors to top-quality indie game developers is quite inspiring, and certainly a new move for Nintendo. I think Wii U just might be an indie developer’s dream.
