Castle Pixel

Following a few years of development, Blossom Tales from Castle Pixel and publisher FDG Entertainment is due out on Steam this month. That’s where it’s staying for now, but a Switch version isn’t out of the cards. When asked about Switch, FDG showed willingness to port it to additional platforms if it does well on Steam.

FDG is already pledging support for Switch with Monster Boy and Oceanhorn. Seeing Blossom Tales on Switch might not be a crazy thought, especially given its Zelda inspirations.

Rex Rocket’s Wii U version has been put on hold, developer Castle Pixel confirmed to Nintendo Everything. The studio’s Miguel Vidaure told us that a release on the eShop is “still a possibility”, though it’s “on the back burner due to the time it would take to develop.”

Something that could lead to Rex Rocket hitting Wii U is the Monogame framework. In a report last year, we heard about the technology coming to the¬†console. However, this has yet to actually happen. If Wii U were to gain Monogame support, Vidaure said Rex Rocket would come to Wii U “in no time”.

Castle Pixel has already moved on to its next game, Blossom Tales. There’s a Wii U stretch goal at $250,000, but according to Vidaure, Monogame support would mean that the title would head to Nintendo’s console even if the target isn’t met.
