Ron Gilbert's The Cave confirmed for Wii U eShop

No more monkeying around.

Upcoming Double Fine adventure The Cave will be released on the Wii U eShop, the developer has announced.

The labyrinthine platformer was previously announced for download on PC, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. It'll arrive in early 2013.

The Cave is the latest creation from Monkey Island mastermind Ron Gilbert. It'll mix Metroidvania platforming with Gilbert's trademark humour.

News of a Wii U release emerged from PAX 2012 (thanks, Joystiq), via Double Fine representative Greg Rice.

No details were given of how the Wii U's GamePad tablet might be implemented.

"The Cave may be mysterious and sultry, but it's also strangely comforting", wrote Eurogamer's Jeffrey Matulef during our The Cave preview earlier this year. "For old-school adventure gamers I suspect it will feel a lot like coming home."
