Indie developer Flippfly have announced that Race The Sun will release on Wii U this August.

As a solar-powered craft, the sun is your death timer. Players are challenged to hurtle towards the sunset at breakneck speed as they race against the inevitable.

Inspired by classic arcade games, it places an emphasis on competing for high scores, shorter game sessions and unadulterated fun complete with nerve-wracking tension.

“Given the simply fun nature of the game, and the Star Fox inspired visual style, it feels like a perfect fit,” the developer shares. “Race The Sun is running great on the system and we are excited to see how Nintendo fans will respond.”

Race The Sun will release for Wii U through the Nintendo eShop in August.
