For the past two years, Kerbal Space Program has made a few waves in Steam. Now, developer Squad behind the game are looking to port the Space Program Simulator (you heard me right) onto consoles. KSP puts the player in control of everything from budget, to spaceship design, construction, and travel.
Senior Licensing Marketing Manager of Nintendo, Damon Baker, believes the Wii U version will be the definitive experience:
We feel we have the definitive version on Wii U because of our interface,” Nintendo’s Damon Baker, senior marketing manager of publisher and developer relations, tells us. “You’ll be able to utilize the touchscreen and the GamePad in a number of different ways from actually building the spacecraft and navigating the spacecraft and even getting different perspectives. You’ll be able to fly the spacecraft from the cockpit utilizing the GamePad as a different viewpoint.”
Currently, there has been no release date announced, but if you would like to check the game out yourself, you can try the demo on your Mac or PC.
