Curve Studios is planning a few games for Wii U. A few months ago, the developer confirmed Stealth Inc 2 as an eShop exclusive. And just last week, we learned that The Swapper is Wii U bound as well.

There’s one more title coming from Curve that seems to have gone under the radar. At E3, the company announced plans to port Jasper Byrne’s indie title Lone Survivor to Nintendo’s console as well. It’s due out in Q4 of this year.



Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on the Bowgun – why Tri’s customization was removed, special “element” teased

Monster Hunter Tri allowed players to mix and match three different parts of the Bowgun weapon. However, this feature was removed in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.

Explaining why the team decided to cut the functionality, director Kaname Fujioka told Siliconera:

“In Tri, we experimented with this system where you could mix and match these Bowgun parts. The problem with that was that it got really, really complicated. When it came time to make a new iteration, we looked at that system and thought it would be too difficult to expand upon without making it even more complicated for us to make and users to understand. So, we did make an effort to simplify it a little bit.”

“Now, we don’t want Bowgun users to feel [the system] is too simple or uninteresting, so there is a certain level of customization and methods of making Bowguns to suit your playstyle, with the way you can remove the Limiter.”

Fujioka did at least have an interesting tease to share for fans of the Bowgun:
