Wales Interactive has announced their sci-fi adventure puzzle game, Soul Axiom, will launch on Nintendo Wii U on September 29th, 2016. Soul Axiom will be available for download on the eShop with an exclusive reduced base price of £11.99, $14.99, €14.99. Further savings are still to be made for anyone who downloaded the E3 Nindies@Home demo. For up to one month after the launch, owners of the E3 demo will receive 15% off the launch price on the Nintendo eShop.
“Two years ago we released Master Reboot on the Wii U and received an overwhelming response from the Nintendo audience. We had a lot of success with our first major title, but we knew it was a rough diamond and by no means perfect.” Said Ben Tester, who is the Wales Interactive’s PR and Community Manager. “With Soul Axiom, we wanted to show what we’re capable of as an independent studio and explore the concept of digital immortality further. We took the opportunity to offer players 15% off through the Nindies@Home program and now we’d like to take that offer a little further by lowering the base price only on Wii U. Development took a little longer than expected and so we’d just like to thank everyone who’s been waiting patiently for the game. We hope you enjoy it and we look forward to bringing our next original title to Nintendo consoles.”
