Ratalaika Games

Ratalaika Games may not be a name that everyone is familiar with, but they’ve been porting a few games to the eShop since last year. Across Wii U and 3DS, you can find releases such as Defend your Crypt, Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition, and Twin Robots. Plantera is also due out very soon and could be the neatest of the bunch.

Aside from Wii U and 3DS, Ratalaika Games might be setting its sights on Switch development as well. On its website, the system is specifically mentioned as a platform the company ports to.

We also followed up with Ratalaika directly on this to find out if any active Switch projects are on the way. The response was interesting, as CEO Adrian Vega told us that information cannot be currently disclosed due to the company having partners in Europe/Japan, and he is not authorized to speak about games that have not yet been announced to be in active porting to consoles. We were further told that he may have something to share at the end of this month.

The main takeaway here is that Ratalaika is definitely interested in Switch. Even if we don’t see any titles from them immediately, you can definitely expect new ports down the road.

Ratalaika Games is wrapping up updates for two of its previous eShop releases. Defend your Crypt and Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition will be getting patches in early 2017.

Defend your Crypt’s update sounds fairly substantial. New maps will be added, and tweaks will be implemented. The update should be submitted to lot check very soon.

As for Blasting Agent, we know that Russian will be included as a supported language. It’ll be submitted in early January, and Ratalaika is also working on a Japanese version of the game.

League of Evil will soon be gracing the Wii U and 3DS eShops courtesy of Ratalaika Games’ porting efforts. While we wait for it, view a new trailer below.

Earlier in the year, indie developer VaragtP put out a simulation game Plantera. Ratalaika Games is now porting it over to both Wii U and 3DS.

The company confirmed on Twitter:

The objective of Plantera is to create your own garden and grow it with new plants, bushes, trees, and animals. Helpers will eventually give you assistance as your garden grows by picking up things and harvesting your plants – even when you’re not playing. However, other critters will invade your garden and will need to be taken down.

Here’s a trailer for the game:


When the eShop updates tomorrow, Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition will be out for both Wii U and 3DS. View some footage from both versions below.

Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition will be on the eShop this Thursday in North America. On 3DS, the game takes up 81 blocks, or 10.125MB. The Wii U version is 29MB.

The eShop has populated with news about one of the game’s heading to North America next week. On August 18, Ratilakia Games will publish the digital game Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition.
