Earthlock: Festival of Magic still coming to Wii U, if Switch version happens, Wii U backers get Switch codes too

I would like to ensure you all that we are still working on the Wii U version. We did the first optimization pass in January and were very hopeful that we would be able to release the game soon after that. However during the Quality Assurance process afterwards, we concluded that it needed more work, and so here we are.

The Wii U version has gone through a full second optimization pass and is now in QA again. We are still working hard on getting it out ASAP, but having missed the estimated date in the last KS update, I'll just stick to the "as soon as possible".

Nintendo Switch

Many of our Wii U backers have been asking us if we can give them the option to instead choose a Switch version. If and when we release a Switch version we have decided that all Wii U backers will get both. So feel free to get your Wii U version as soon as it arrives!

(We will announce news about a possible Switch version at a later time.)

I wish other developers did this instead of just cancelling the Wii U version.

This is how you treat investors.

Wow, that is incredibly kind. These guys are a class act! I hope they're able to do this without it hurting them too much financially.

Yep, me too! Very surprised they can afford to do that! (I HOPE they can at least...)

Yeah, that's what I'm worried about, too! Hope they haven't bitten off more than they can chew.

this is good news the game looks good and I backed it for a wii u version! I also backed mighty no 9 for 3ds and never got anything in return... I just had to mention it somewhere even if its unrelated.

There's a Wii U survival horror game by the name of Bizerta: Silent Evil (if it sees the light of day) that the dev says if brought to Switch he would provide a free code for the game to anyone that bought it on Wii U. 1st link shows pics and 2nd link confirms it being free under said circumstances.
