Coda Games looking to become Wii U dev, interested in bringing Liege to Nintendo’s console

Coda Games has reached out to Nintendo in hopes of becoming a Wii U developer. Owner John Rhee told us that Nintendo of America’s Dan Adelman guided him through the application process, and he’s hoping to hear back from the Big N soon.

Some of you may be aware that Coda Games created a Kickstarter for Liege, “a party-based, tactical role-playing game”. PS4 and PS Vita versions were just added in as stretch goals yesterday, and the Wii U could soon head down the same path.

According to Rhee, he’d “love” to release Liege on Wii U, mainly due to the fact that SNES titles such as Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger sparked his interest in RPGs. If he becomes a Wii U dev before the Kickstarter ends, the console will “absolutely” become a part of the campaign as a stretch goal.

And just in case you were wondering: Rhee also said that there aren’t any plans for a 3DS version “at this stage”.
