Several years ago, Eternity’s Child was planned for WiiWare. Mecho Wars was also set for a release on the downloadable service. Unfortunately, neither game ended up on the Wii Shop Channel.
What happened to both games? Luc Bernard gave a quick explanation to Nintendo Life:
They never saw the light of day, sadly. In the case of Eternity’s Child, WiiWare publisher Alten8 never finished porting it. Mecho Wars ran on Wii, but WiiWare was simply not profitable enough to make it worth releasing — that’s why it ended up on the PSP and PS3 instead.
It’s been several years since the Eternity’s Child saga. Bernard’s latest game, The Only Escape, may now have a shot at launching on Wii U. According to Bernard, he’d like to make this a reality if his new Indiegogo campaign reaches its funding goal. Support for the 3DS, on the other hand, is probably out of the question.
As I said, I would like to do a Wii U version of Imagination Is The Only Escape if we manage to meet our funding goal, since it would be a perfect fit for the console. As for the 3DS, sadly I don’t think any game I make can run on it. You may think that sounds silly, but games with huge 2D textures take up a lot of memory and then to port it to a platform like the 3DS takes time. If a publisher wanted to port one of my games to the 3DS I would of course say yes, but I certainly couldn’t do it alone.
