Kerbal Space Program will blast off on Wii U in early 2016

Kerbal Space Program officially launched on PC earlier this year, but developer Squad has been taking the game to new and unexplored horizons. The latest one will see the space flight simulator come to Wii U.

The announcement came at tonight's Nindies@Night event, just blocks from PAX Prime 2015. The Wii U version of Kerbal Space Program will be put together in conjunction with the crew at developer Flying Tiger. This iteration of the game will allow Wii U players to use the Wii U GamePad as a cockpit to control their ship, a layout to create flight plans, or as a motion controller to steer their craft.

With the mod scene growing by the day, no word on how much of these custom creations will be supported in the Wii U version of the game. This will be a big question going into this version's release, given that the mod scene is arguably the heart of the Kerbal Space Program experience.

Kerbal Space Program will come to Wii U in early 2016.
