Arcade-Style Shooter, XType Plus Coming To The Wii U + Trailer and Details

XType Wii U

PhobosLabs has confirmed that hit browser game XType+ will be coming to the Nintendo Wii U! There will be plenty of extra features available when it releases, so make sure to check it out!

In a developer interview, here’s what was said:

XType Plus has an entirely new game mode – the Plus Mode. It’s a bit more action oriented; you have to keep moving all time. It features some different enemy weapons, EMP bombs and time based gameplay – you play against the clock instead of having 3 lives.

Another big feature is the online leaderboard and the replay system. Each time you upload your highscore a recording of how you played is uploaded with it. Other players can browse through the highscores and watch these recordings. This is a great way to learn some new strategies or just to watch some Japanese dude totally owning the game.

I also spent a lot of time tweaking the gameplay for XType Plus. I balanced the scoring, implemented a bonus system for bigger kills, tweaked the health of the enemies, number of bullets. Basically the whole difficulty ramp.

On top of that, there’s a whole lot of polish. A new menu system, more music, more sound effects and revamped graphics.
