Blossom Tales not ruled out for Switch
Posted on 1 month ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 3 Comments | 0 Likes
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.

Developer FDG Entertainment has updated the Monster Boy blog to let us know that they are in the ending stages of the development cycle. It seems that the game is almost finished but they still have to polish some details. After receiving some feedback, they reworked the face of the protagonist, Jin, and the fantastic graphics really look colorful.
Monster Boy will get a simultaneous release for all systems including Switch, but it’s too soon to have a launch date yet.
Finally, FDG Entertainment will be showcasing their games at PAX South from Jan. 27, 2017 to Jan. 29, 2017 and are looking forward to meet any of their fans.

We do know that FDG Entertainment recently announced Oceanhorn for a Nintendo platform. That’s almost certainly one of the two games they’re referring to here.
Monster Boy still being considered for Wii U
Posted on 1 year ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop | 3 Comments | 0 Likes
The Game Atelier ended up cancelling its Kickstarter project Flying Hamsters 2 and morphed it into the Wonder Boy spiritual sequel Monster Boy. The game is finally wrapping up development and should be launching in a few months – but not on Nintendo platforms just yet.
Publisher FDG Entertainment said last year that Wonder Boy would be considered for Wii U. As of now, that’s still the case. The team currently has its hands full with current platforms, though if Wonder Boy sells well, that’ll increase the chances of something like a Wii U version.
FDG Entertainment wrote in a blog post recently:
“We hear you loud and clear! There’s PS Vita, WiiU and even more. We totally agree that these platforms need to get Monster Boy, too! We love Nintendo! However, it’s impossible for us to work on all portings at the same time. Also, the game needs to sell well enough so we’re able to finance the porting work as it can be very time consuming. Since we don’t have any guarantee for success, we just can’t announce additional platforms at the moment.”

Wonder Boy lives on as newly announced “Monster Boy”, will be considered for Wii U
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop | 2 Comments | 0 Likes
Yesterday, FDG Entertainment announced that it has teamed up with The Game Atelier to make Monster Boy And The Wizard Of Booze. It’s intended to be a spiritual sequel to SEGA’s Wonder Boy series. Interestingly enough, Ryuichi Nishizawa – the creator of Wonder Boy – is providing input.
Monster Boy and the Wizard of Booze may look familiar. That’s because The Game Atelier is taking what it created with the cancelled Flying Hamster 2 project, and turning it into something new. Monster Boy And The Wizard Of Booze features a new hero and removes the hamsters. Other elements have been improved/changed as well. You can learn more in an official post here.
Monster Boy And The Wizard Of Booze is currently coming to the PlayStation 4, PC and “more” formats. It sounds like a Wii U version could happen, as FDG’s Thomas Kern told Nintendo Life the following:
It’s a pretty exciting day as we didn’t expect such an overwhelming positive response from the Internet. After all, there hasn’t been any news about the series for years.
We love the Wii U but for the moment I can’t confirm anything. It’s definitely considered as we believe Nintendo fans would appreciate the game.
