Chasing Aurora Now Wii U Launch Title

Chasing Aurora is a beautifully styled multiplayer 2D flight experience. Wii U owners can now play it on day one. From Developer Broken Rules, who also brought us the visually exquisite And Yet it Moves, Chasing Aurora supports up to 5-players locally as they take on three different game modes inspired by children’s games, such as Freeze Tag and Hide-And-Seek, hoping to win Aurora’s gem.

Visually, the game is striking, but the flight mechanics are what separate Chasing Aurora from other flight games. A combination of great physics and wonderful sound design, the birds in Chasing Aurora feel like they’re both a part of nature and still detached; they glide without effort, but still fight to stay in the air. It’s a beautifully realized mechanic, and reason enough to look at this title.

In just two days, gamers will have one of the most unique titles in years to start off the next generation of consoles, and I couldn’t be more excited to see it happen. Chasing Aurora will be available November 18th on the Wii U eShop for only $14.99.
