Curve Digital announced that it is bringing Hue to the Wii U eShop on Q1 2016.

You can view the official overview and trailer below:

When Hue’s mother becomes trapped in the mono world, he gains access to the colour ring – a device which allows him to alter the perception of colour. Embarking on a mission to foil the evil intentions of the despicable Doctor Gray, Hue begins a journey which will not only shape him as person, but alter the world forever.

Key to the game is the ability to shift specific colours, a thrilling game mechanic which offers a host of new puzzle possibilities. Players can manipulate the environment in order to reveal hidden routes, avoid threats, remove hazards, defeat adversaries, create platforms and more…the gameplay possibilities are endless.

Hue has been funded by Kuju Startups, a video games investment fund who help great indie developers bring their dream ideas to market.

And that’s all the main news for today. Enjoy everyone!
