Mighty Switch Force! 2 due this month on the 3DS eShop

UPDATE #2: Confirmed for Wii U.

UPDATE #2: Mighty Switch Force! 2 has been confirmed for Wii U by developer WayForward, whose DuckTales reboot we reviewed today.

WayForward confirmed the sequel was heading to Nintendo's struggling console in a recent statement to Nintendo Everything, where it noted that “it's kind of a backburner project right now”. Detail are expected in the weeks to follow.

UPDATE: Mighty Switch Force! 2 has also been spotted for release on Wii U, via a recent PEGI age-rating.

The listing suggests that the game's release is imminent (thanks, VG247) - a 13th July release date is mentioned, although the game has yet to appear on the Wii U eShop store.

ORIGINAL STORY: Puzzle/platformer Mighty Switch Force! 2 - WayForward's first direct sequel in the Mighty series - will arrive later this month on the 3DS eShop. North America gets it next week on 13th June, while Europe has to wait an extra fortnight until 27th June.

Back in February WayForward teased the sequel saying that protagonist Patricia Wagon would have a "surprise career change" and indeed she's transitioned from a cop to a firefighter. This time instead of busting the outlaw Hooligan Sisters, you're tasked with saving the reformed criminals.

They're not the only lives you'll save, as you'll also have to search for "ugly secret babies" hidden throughout each level; for this apparently takes place in a grim society where people stash away their unwanted kin to die in fires. Don't let the perky voices and bright smiles fool you.

Mighty Switch Force! 2 will feature new puzzle types, weapons, enemies, and tunes. Get a glimpse at this hellish inferno in the new trailer below.
