Retro platformer Edge out on Wii U eShop

3DS soon.

Retro platformer Edge launches on the Wii U eShop today priced £1.79, developer Two Tribes has announced.

On Wii U Edge outputs at a native 1080p resolution, with anti-aliasing at 60 frames per second. There's off-TV play via the GamePad, too.

The Wii U version includes over 100 levels, and the Edge Extended DLC and bonus levels from the Steam version.

Edge launches on 3DS before the end of 2013, Two Tribes added. The 3DS version is developed by Cosmigo. Screenshots of that are below. Content wise it's the same as the Wii U version.

Edge began life as a 2009 iPhone game, created by David Papazian and his company Mobigame. But it became yet another casualty of infamous patent troll Tim Langdell.

Simon Parkin laid out the full story in Eurogamer's 2009 article The Edge of Reason?
