Tyrone Rodriguez, head of Nicalis, had this to say when asked if the company has looked into other consoles/handhelds for future titles…
“Yes, and we’re licensed to develop on Wii, PSP, iPhone as well as DSi. Mr. Amaya has a DSi and likes the idea of small mini-games such as the ones on DSiWare — especially on the Japanese store. I’d like to get his other games, Guxt and Ikachan on DSiWare; they seem very appropriate for it.
Nicklas also has some solid ideas and thinks Knytt Stories would be great for DSi or PSP. There’s actually a Knytt Stories prototype homebrew by a fan and it’s enough proof-of-concept that the game would work well on DSi.”
I would love to see Nicalis tackle DSiWare in the future. For now, however, I’d like to see some of their WiiWare projects. I’m still waiting for Cave Story!
Thanks to Robert for the news tip!
