Ping 1.5+ developer Christopher Arnold sat down with WiiWareWave to discuss their new title Ping 1.5+ which they hope to have on the Wii U eShop before the end of July. Here’s an extract of the interview:

Why did you choose to develop games for the Wii U?

[Chris]: I’ve always been a Nintendo fan. I also knew they were looking for help from the indie part of the industury to help boost Wii U sales. It seemed like an easier target than SONY or Microsoft. Also, I knew about every single indie game that came onto Wii U and I wasn’t much of an indie gamer, that means games that came out on it got pretty good exposure just by simply being on there. It could be the difference between being unknown and known?

BLOK DROP U and Ping 1.5+ will be receiving crossover stages with each other, the developers of both games have announced.
