At this point, it seems like most third-party developers are either on board with the 3DS or may consider working with the hardware in the future. One company we haven’t heard much from, however, is Crytek. Recently though, Crytek boss Cevat Yerli was asked about his thoughts regarding Nintendo’s upcoming handheld, and he appears to be rather impressed. You can check out Yerli’s full thoughts about the system below, which includes the possibility of bringing Crysis and CryEngine to the 3DS.

“I think the 3DS is an quite awesome piece of hardware. At E3, I got a demonstration from… it’s probably better not to say, but quite a senior person at Nintendo. That demo showed me a very powerful piece of graphics hardware, as well as a very interesting user-experience. I think they have a very interesting platform on their hands. They have some problems here and there but they are aware and it’s nothing that cannot be ironed out. I think the price point they’re targeting is very interesting. Everything looks like a winner on that platform. I actually wouldn’t be surprised if there is some high-end gaming happening on that platform because of the raw power of the hardware.

Whether we would like to [bring Crysis to the 3DS] or not depends on the platform itself. My initial contact with it is just that we got to see the platform at E3, going forward it may be very well that we look into putting the Cry Engine on that platform. But again this is initially thought only – nothing has been decided. There is an opportunity with Nintendo 3DS and Crytek.”

I am extremely proud to annouce that Renegade Kid was blessed with authorized developer status for the new super sleek and sexy Nintendo 3DS a couple of months ago. Apologies for the delay in letting everyone know, but we’ve been kinda busy digging into all of the 3DS goodness.”

Renegade Kid is one of the top DS developers, and so I’m sure they’ll maintain their high-quality of work to the 3DS. I’m very interested to see what the company has in store for Nintendo’s next handheld.
