Knytt Underground coming to the Wii U

The critically acclaimed, cross-platform exploration game Knytt Underground is finally coming to the Wii U on December 19th; it’s never looked better. For those of you who haven’t played this outrageously intriguing game, Knytt Underground is a very unique, very methodical exploration game that is the sequel to Knytt and Knytt Stories. In Knytt Underground you play as Mi Sprocket, a sprite with special powers to switch between human and ball form, granting him mad spelunking skills. Mi goes on a quest to save the world from being obliterated… maybe.

The Wii U version comes loaded with the Infinity Hype update, making the game much more expansive than it already is. Additional features include:

  • Over 1,800 intricately designed rooms to explore
  • Even more secrets to discover, quests to embark on and rooms to uncover!
  • Exclusively to Wii U on consoles, the Infinity Hype update brings improvements and changes based on fan feedback from Reddit
  • With new graphical effects and flourishes, the Wii U version is the best looking console version of the game
  • Thanks to the Nintendo GamePad, you can view the map easily, seeing where you’ve explored & where you have yet to venture.



Knytt Underground is a game of curiosity and adventure. If you’re curious to check it out on Wii U, I highly encourage you to do so. If you’re not rocking a Wii U yet, the Knytt series is also available on the PC, Mac, PS3, and PS Vita. Learn and explore more about the series, even download a demo on the games official website.
