Action-RPG 'Squids Odyssey' for Wii U, 3DS
Shortly after the release of its mobile brawler Combo Crew, developer The Game Bakers' have today revealed that they are busy at work bringing their deep-sea Action-RPG series Squids onto Nintendo platforms. Titled Squids Odyssey, the company says the game is poised for a simultaneous digital release on the Nintendo 3DS & Nintendo Wii U eShop during the fall of 2013.
Infectious black ooze threatens the Squids' lush underwater world, turning ordinary crustaceans into dangerous mutants. The Ocean is endangered; it's up to you and your squad of squids to save their peaceful homeland from assured destruction.
"Nintendo hardware always had a prominent place on our living room shelves as we were growing up," says Emeric Thoa, creative director at The Game Bakers. "We're excited to contribute our Squids to their modern gear. The kid in me can tick that point off his bucket list."
Squids Odyssey takes the first two episodes in the oceanic saga and blends them together into a new edition, filled with novel ideas, extra mechanics specifically designed for the Nintendo hardware and a couple of surprises too. Controls are also completely revamped so to fully take advantage to the best unique specificities that the Wii U gamepad and the Nintendo 3DS handheld have to offer.
