Double Fine's 'The Cave' confirmed for Wii U

Monkey Island creator's new game to get Wii U digital release

The Cave, a new game from Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert, will be released as a download title on Wii U.


DoubleFine rep Greg Rice confirmed as much during a PAX presentation, according to Joystiq.

Perviously announced for a digital release on XBLA, PSN and PC in early 2013, it's described by Sega as an "odd and compelling" adventure game.

"Your first clue that The Cave is a place like no other will come just after you assemble your team of three unlikely adventurers - each with their own unique personalities and skills - and stumble across a subterranean amusement park and a medieval castle, not to mention a fully armed and ready to launch nuclear-tipped ICBM," said Sega in the game's original announcement.
