Wii U debuts third-party cross-platform support with Cubemen 2

Play with friends on the PC, Mac, Linux and iOS versions.

3D strategy game Cubemen 2 will be the first Wii U title to support cross-platform play with something other than another Nintendo product.

Players will be able to play the Wii U version of Cubemen 2 with their friends who own the PC, Mac, Linux or iOS versions of the same game, publisher Nnooo has announced.

While the Wii U version of Cubemen 2 isn't due until "late 2013 / early 2014," the strategy title came out earlier this year on its other platforms where the community has generated over 4000 user-created levels that will be available for Wii U players. Additionally, it will support up to six-player multiplayer in both co-op and competitive modes. The game contains five game modes such as Capture-the-Flag, Territory and Rescue. For more information, check out Cubemen 2's official site.

"We're excited to be working closely with Nnooo and Nintendo to bring a new dynamic to a Nintendo platform," said developer 3 Sprockets director Seon Rozenblum. "We're bringing the gaming community together, offering true cross-platform play and user generated content across multiple platforms and devices and we are ecstatic to be including the Wii U in our lineup for Cubemen 2."

The Wii U previously featured cross-platform support with the 3DS version of Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate, but that was another Nintendo system and it was limited to local play. Cubemen 2, however, marks the first time the Kyoto-based company has linked support with some of the most popular platforms around, which could mark the start of a huge trend if it takes off.
