Don't Starve Wii U

Wii U players will have a chance to finally get in on the Tim Burton-esque survival action of Don’t Starve. Klei, the same folks behind then likes of Mark of the Ninja and Shank, have announced that Don’t Starve: Giant Edition is bound for the Wii U.

It includes the content of both the original Don’t Starve and the stuff that was added with the Reign of Giants expansion. That means more characters, seasons, creatures and biomes. According to the release, Klei “also optimized the game to take advantage of the Wii U GamePad, which will display your inventory and map or allow you to play the game in off-TV mode.”

Very good.

Finally, if you pick up the game on the Nintendo eShop before June 28, you’ll receive a code for an additional copy. That means you can give a friend (or enemy, maybe) a chance to play Don’t Starve: Giant Addition on their Wii U. No co-op, though.

Don’t Starve Together is coming to PC. It’s a standalone multiplayer expansion that will be free to PC owners starting on June 3, 2015. It’s currently in early access, and we have no idea if it will ever make to to the Wii U.

Don’t Starve: Giant Edition will hit the Wii U in North America on May 28. Europe will get the game on June 4.
