n-Space not working on any games for Nintendo platforms for the first time in “probably 10 years”
n-Space has usually had something in development for Nintendo platforms at all times, but for the first time in “probably 10 years,” they have nothing in the works.
According to n-Space’s Dan O’Leary:
“It’s kind of a sad thing to say, because for a long time n-Space has been known as a Nintendo-friendly developer. We certainly have loved all our time working with them. We think their hardware’s great. We think more often than not they have the right mindset in the difficult game world we live in…There’s just very low demand right now for their work through the publisher side. Which is ironic, I think that’ll probably swing back. The news was just talking about how Nintendo was beating everybody with hardware sales. The DS and 3DS sales curves have been slower than publishers would have liked. That may change, but I can tell you right now we’re not working on anything.”
The studio found a niche on Nintendo handhelds over the past few years. n-Space worked on the Call of Duty and James Bond DS games. The company also made Heroes of Ruin, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D, and the past couple of Skylanders 3DS releases.
