A World of Keflings launches on Windows 8 today, headed to Wii U later this year

A World of Keflings, NinjaBee's city-building game in which giant players help tiny Keflings build kingdoms, was released today on Windows 8 and is coming to Wii U later this year, according to a post on the developer's blog.

The $6.99 Windows version is compatible with Windows 8 and Windows RT for tablets. Players with Xbox Live can use their Xbox avatars in the game, compete on Xbox Live leaderboards and earn achievements. Those who've already played A World of Keflings on Xbox can earn up to 200 additional Gamerscore on Windows.

Unlike its Xbox 360 counterpart, the Windows version does not include Avatar FameStar, which allows you to perform challenges to earn avatar outfits and items, or the game's DLC.

"With the current generation of consoles coming to an end, we saw opportunities to bring what is perhaps our studio's most well-loved game to many, many more players," said Brent Fox, art director at NinjaBee. "With that said, we're proud to announce that in addition to today's release on Windows 8, A World of Keflings will be coming to the Wii U later this year."

No additional details about the Wii U version were announced. We've reached out to NinjaBee for more details and will update this story with more information as it becomes available.

Update: A representative from NinjaBee confirmed to Polygon that the Wii U version will use players' Mii characters, "in much the same way" that the Xbox 360 and Windows versions use avatars. The representative declined to confirm the launch date beyond the "later this year" timeframe.
