Indie studio DarkSeas Games is developing a spiritual successor to Road Rash and have began a Kickstarter campaign to fund development of the game.  DarkSeas Games has stated on the Kickstarter that if the project reaches the $160,000 funding goal, the game will be ported to the Wii U.

Road Redemption takes place in a nightmare version of the American midwest.

You play a recently-paroled felon.  After 8 years in federal prison,  you must work your way back up from the bottom of your old motorcycle club.

As you rise in the ranks, it becomes clear that not all of your brothers are acting in the best interests of the club, and may even be responsible for your incarceration.

You must play a pivotal role in the resulting power struggle, with multiple outcomes depending on your actions.

Eventually, you can lead your own faction and fight to control territory and drug distribution routes in a war for survival and supremacy.

Road Redemption is going to include a variety of gameplay modes, weapons, and bikes.  Check out the Road Redemption Kickstarter page for more details about this awesome looking Road Rash style game!  There has not been a Road Rash style game released for quite some time so if you a want to see Road Redemption on the Wii U, then head on over to the Kickstarter page and back them now!  As of this writing, the Kickstarter has 12 days left and is 52% funded with about $84,000 of the $160 K goal raised.
