Curve Studios are indie heroes, using their Sony connections to help get quality games onto the PS3, PS4 and Vita, but it all started with their Stealth Bastard series. This sadistic puzzle-platformer was designed around pure stealth, somewhere between Super Meat Boy and Splinter Cell, and eventually found its way to Steam, PS3 and Vita as the renamed Stealth Inc.
A sequel was inevitable and has now officially sneaked out of the darkness. Stealth Inc. 2 will feature expanded stealth gameplay, with challenge rooms linked by a MetroidVania overworld, feature cooperative play and dwarf the original in terms of scale. It's slated to release in "Q4 2014" on the... ooh, hang about. This is rather exciting.
Stealth Inc 2 the first Wii U title in Curve Studios' lineup, and has been billed as exclusive. Whether full or timed, it's great to see Nintendo's console receiving increasing interest from independent developers and more games to shout about. More as we hear it.
