Nintendo shares users for co-op and multiplayer modes in Cubemen 2

Cubemen 2 on the Wii U will support cross-platform play with iOS, Windows, Mac, and Linux users.

The news, announced by Cubemen publisher Nnooo, is the first time Nintendo has allowed cross-platform play with something other than a Nintendo device.

“I’m really proud to be able to announce this,” said Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo.

“We’ve spent the last few months working with both Nintendo and 3 Sprockets, the game’s developer, to make this a reality.”

3 Sprockets is targeting a release date sometime in late 2013 or early 2014, but has already launched on other platforms.

This will wind up benefiting the Wii U community, as the game will launch with access to the more than 4000 user-created levels already created.

Cubemen 2 will support up to six-players in both co-op and competitive modes.

“We're excited to be working closely with Nnooo and Nintendo to bring a new dynamic to a Nintendo platform," said 3 Sprockets director Seon Rozenblum."

"We're bringing the gaming community together, offering true cross-platform play and user generated content across multiple platforms and devices and we are ecstatic to be including the Wii U in our lineup for Cubemen 2."
