Life of Pixel Explores the Meaning of Life on the Wii U eShop

Life of Pixel from Super Icon is a 2D action platformer that harkens back to the days when the pixel was king over all. The player begins his journey as a one-pixel green hero, traveling through gaming history and helping Pixel on its quest of self-awakening.

The game is already available on Mac and PC, with the primary draw being that each level has been designed to look and sound like it’s being played on a classic system. It also pays tribute to classic titles like Zelda, Shinobi, Sonic, Prince of Persia, and much more, and has a fantastic chip-tune soundtrack with a whole slew of incredible composers.

Thanks to the positive reception of the game so far, Super Icon has now announced that the game is confirmed for the Wii U eShop. Yay!

Take a look at the trailer below! You’ll see several Nintendo franchise inspired levels within the shots, so it’s only appropriate that the game is heading to a Nintendo console in the near future.
