Puddle coming to North American Wii U eShop Jan. 31

Puddle, a puzzle-platformer from Neko Entertainment which launched on the European Wii U eShop alongside the console, is making its overdue arrival in North America Jan. 31, according to Nintendo World Report.

Puddle tasks the player with tilting the Wii U GamePad to maneuver the world around a titular glob of water, sending it careening through pipes and trapdoors in a race from start to finish. Along the way, the player must keep their liquid away from hazardous pitfalls and heat sources, which causes said liquid to evaporate, naturally.

We've reached out to Nintendo to confirm the release date and price of the game. Puddle is also currently available for XBLA, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
