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 Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD proves remakes can go a long way on Wii U. So that begs the question: how about a Mario remake? Wouldn’t it be fantastic seeing something like Super Mario Sunshine updated in HD?

Shigeru Miyamoto is certainly open to the possibility. Nintendo’s own developers are concentrating “on new stuff”, but he says HD releases could “be a good project for a development partner of ours, so that’s something I hope we have the opportunity to introduce in the future.”

Miyamoto told GamesRadar:

As for remaking previous games in HD, that’s certainly possible, but currently most of our devs are working on new stuff, and we like to have them working on new stuff. HD remakes might, however, be a good project for a development partner of ours, so that’s something I hope we have the opportunity to introduce in the future.

But the main thing that’s always going to be on our minds are, “What new elements of gameplay can we use with the GamePad as applied to some of these older games?” We want to find some way to bring a new experience to this than simply update the visuals and leave it at that.

Shigeru Miyamoto has previously spoken about Nintendo’s desire to lessen the gap between 2D and 3D Mario players. This is something he reiterated during a recent media session.

He said:

“The joy of a 3D Mario game for me is really that you’re able to move freely in any direction and use lots of different fun actions while exploring a world. The joy of a 2D Mario game for me is that anyone can play these games and have a good time, even if it’s their first time playing a game. There’s a certain kind of simplicity to the concept of simply proceeding in one direction and reaching the goal.”

“The first time I think that we brought all of these disparate elements from these two different series together was in Super Mario 3D Land. But in the case of Super Mario 3D World, I think that we’ve found a way to evolve further in incorporating all of these elements, or have reached another goal, if you will.”

“Now that’s not to say that we may not make more games in the vein of Super Mario Galaxy in the future. I’d certainly like to consider that possibility. But our goal right now is to expose as many people as possible to this type of gameplay in a 3D world. And I think what we’ve come up with here is the most balanced system in which to do this.”
