Shadow Puppeteer Wii U Preview

Shadow Puppeteer is coming soon to the Wii U eShop. It released last year on Steam and has received numerous awards. It is a highly stylized game that allows the player to manipulate light to solve puzzles. This couch co-op game allows one player to control a boy and another to play as his shadow. It looks like a fun puzzle/adventure game worth checking out. It should be available very soon. Until then, check out the trailer below.

Invite a friend to explore the strange, yet beautiful world of darkness and light in Shadow Puppeteer, an award-winning, local co-op adventure.

Assume the roles of a boy and his shadow, separated from one another by the evil shadow puppeteer. Work together to manipulate light, solving puzzles that bring you closer to finding this villain and freeing other shadows he has stolen.

Winner of the 2015 Indie Prize Director’s Choice Award and applauded for its stunning art, enchanting music and clever puzzles, Shadow Puppeteer will captivate players from beginning to end.
