Sequel to best-selling PlayStation indie game will be released on Wii U later this year

UK developer Curve Digital has teamed up with Nintendo to bring the next entry in its Stealth Inc series exclusively to Wii U.

The original Stealth Inc was first released on PC as Stealth Bastard, and was subsequently released on PlayStation Vita, PS3 and PS4.

However, Stealth Inc 2 will only be available on the Nintendo eShop when it is released in Q4 2014. It will be developed and published by Curve Digital.

"We've relished revisiting the world of Stealth Inc," said game director and series creator Jonathan Biddle. "It's given us the chance to really fine tune the Stealth Inc experience, while also hugely expanding it with the addition of a larger explorable game world, and a more involved narrative."

Stealth Inc 2 will use the Wii U GamePad to add co-operative play. It will also take on an open world structure as players attempt to save fellow clones from the inhuman experiments of PTi Industries.

The original Stealth Inc has been downloaded more than one million times across various formats.
