Two-man indie developer Dahku Creations have announced that the Wii U version of their game Chubbins is complete and has been submitted to Nintendo for approval. If all goes according to plan, the 2D platformer could be on the eShop as soon as June of this year.

We're excited to announce that our platforming title "Chubbins" for the Wii U eShop has recently been completed and sent off to Nintendo for approval! Pending how the process goes we're now hoping for a June release with a price point of $5.99.

Chubbins was originally released on iOS devices, and has been ported to Nintendo's console with enhanced graphics. The object of the game is to guide the titular hero through 40 levels spread across 5 worlds. Here's a synopsis from the official website:

Guide our plump bunny hero, Chubbins, safely through 40 memorable levels across 5 increasingly challenging worlds! The controls are super simple--just move left and right. Stay on your toes though! Chubbins never stops bouncing, keeping every situation dynamic and making for interesting gameplay scenarios.

After conquering each world's unique boss battle, go back to perfect your route and reflexes and set new records in both Soft and Hard Modes, and master each level individually in Time Attack!

The iOS version of Chubbins was recently reviewed by gaming site Touch Arcade, and received a favorable score. With a total of 5 stars possible, Dahku's platformer received a solid 3.5, earning it a recommendation. You can read the review here.
