Mojo Bones has some interest in Wii U

Posted on 3 years ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U | 0 comments | 0 Likes

Mojo Bones, developer of the upcoming 3DS eShop title Siesta Fiesta, has some interest in Nintendo’s latest home console.

Designer Stuart Ryall told Nintendo Life that that the studio is focusing on handhelds for the time being, “but Wii U is something we’d be open to exploring in future.” Siesta Fiesta “would translate well” to the system, he said. Still, Mojo Bones doesn’t have any immediate plans for Wii U.

Ryall said:

“We’re focusing strictly on handheld at the moment, but Wii U is something we’d be open to exploring in future. Siesta Fiesta’s mechanics would translate well to the Wii U so it would be something worth looking at if the 3DS version does well. No current plans though.”

Another indie title, Imagine Me, has been confirmed for Wii U. KinifiGames hopes to have the platforming dungeon adventure – “Spelunky mixed with Zelda” – out on the eShop in February 2014.

Imagine Me will make use of the GamePad so that the dungeon map can always be displayed. The Wii U version could receive content updates to expand the game’s scope if Nintendo allows for it similar tot he PC version, KinifiGames says.

Imagine Me is Wii U-only in terms of Nintendo platforms. While KinifiGames founder Chris Figueroa is a big 3DS fan, it’s “not in the cards” for now.

Figueroa told Nintendo Life.

“I’d love to but right now that’s not in the cards. I’ve always loved my 3DS and if I was ever given the chance to bring Imagine Me or any game I make to 3DS I would.”

The tweet reads:


For a game that’s as technically-impressive as Jett Rocket II, that’s incredibly small!

Defender’s Quest is looking very likely for both 3DS and Wii U. A 3DS version is all but confirmed, and creator Lars Doucet also confirmed on Twitter that has a Wii U dev kit.

Doucet also said he’s looking into the possibility of cross-buy support between Wii U and 3DS:

As far as cross-buy between Wii U and PC goes, the chances of that happening aren’t so high. It’s not something that should be expected, understandably.
