Renegade Kid’s Jools Watsham has supported both the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U and he’s confident of the laters future. Watsham went on to praise the Wii U stating that it’s got some great games coming out in the future. He acknowledged that the first quater of 2013 has had some issues with software, but he’s confident that the 2013 holiday season will be huge for the Wii U.
“I am certain the Wii U will have an excellent future. The writing is on the wall. It is an excellent console. Nintendo has some amazing titles lined up for future releases. Even though Q1 2013 may have had some issues, I predict that the 2013 holiday season will be huge for the Wii U. Nintendo’s campaign for the Wii U has only just begun.”
Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham has revealed the price of its upcoming Nintendo eShop title. ATV Wild Ride 3D will cost $7.99 when it hits Nintendo 3DS’ online marketplace. The developer has decided that there will not be a demo of the racing game, because, according to Watsham, it “takes a lot of extra time and resources to make a separate demo.” While there’s currently no firm release date for the upcoming title, Watsham said he hopes ATV Wild Ride 3D will be released in March.
ATV Wild Ride 3D is an upcoming racing game from Mutant Mudds developer Renegade Kid. The game supports local and online multiplayer for up to four people. Featured in the game is an online ranking to show who’s the best “Wild Rider” in the world. ATV Wild Ride 3D will probably launch in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS this March, according to Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham.
Mutant Mudds developer Renegade Kid’s upcoming racing game, ATV Wild Ride 3D, features online multiplayer, online ranking and 3D visuals.
Although it will be a download-only title, Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham says ATV Wild Ride 3D is a “retail-quality” game.
The game will be released in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS.
What’s new in ATV Wild Ride 3D? What can you do on the 3DS that you couldn’t on the Nintendo DS with the previous ATV Wild Ride game?
One of the big new additions to ATV Wild Ride 3D is online multiplayer and on-line ranking; to determine who is the best Wild Rider in the world. Online racing without ranking seems a little empty, so we’re hoping the worldwide ranking provides a sense of competition that brings players back to the game.
On the cosmetic side, we have spent a lot of time and effort overhauling, well, pretty much everything really including, higher resolution textures, real-time lighting and shadows, specular highlights, mip-mapping, suspension physics, new engine sounds and higher quality audio across the board.
And, it is in 3D of course, which looks fantastic!
Developer Renegade Kidd’s co-founder, Jools Watsham, has confirmed, via Twitter, that there will be a sequel to Mutant Mudds.
The original Mutant Mudds hit the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS in 2012, and a Wii U version of the platformer, titled Mutant Mudds Deluxe, will launch in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U later this year.
There is a chance that the forthcoming Mutant Mudds 2 will be available in physical form, as Watsham sent out a tweet that read, “RT if you would buy a Mutant Mudds 1 & 2 combo pack on cartridge for 3DS! :),” which has so far received over 60 retweets on the social networking service.
Mutant Mudds receives 20 brand-new levels this week, via an update. The update is completely free and becomes available on October 18th in Europe and October 25th in North America. To view the trailer above in glasses-free 3D, head on over to the Nintendo eShop from your Nintendo 3DS.
Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham uploaded the image above to his blog. The image, which is a picture from a Mutant Mudds level, reveals that a new title called Mutant Mudds Deluxe will be coming to Wii U. The game will most likely be fully-playable on the Wii U GamePad.
When Renegade Kid’s Mutant Mudds launched on August 30th for PC, it included 20 brand-new additional levels that aren’t in the original version for Nintendo 3DS. The game’s designer, Jools Watsham, has revealed that the 20 levels will eventually be available as a free download pack from the Nintendo eShop. Watsham also re-confirmed that Renegade Kid is an authorized Wii U developer.
“You might be asking yourself, ‘Why should I vote for Mudds on Steam?’ when you may already have Mutant Mudds on your 3DS, or you’re waiting for the 20 new Grannie levels to land on the eShop (which is totally going to happen btw, as a free update).”
“Porting Mutant Mudds to the PC, and selling it on Steam, has the potential of bringing some much needed funds into Renegade Kid, which will go straight into the development of new games. As we’re being perfectly – and frankly – honest here; I would like to put the majority of our future development efforts into the 3DS eShop and Wii U eShop titles (we’re authorized Wii U developers now btw – excite!).”
“Voting for Mutant Mudds on Steam = more future eShop titles from Renegade Kid.”
Renegade Kid’s Mutant Mudds launched on the Nintendo 3DS eShop earlier this year, and a PC version of the game that includes 20 brand-new levels will release on August 30th. The game’s designer, Jools Watsham, says that although it takes time to add the levels to the 3DS version, and Nintendo needs to approve them before they are released, Renegade Kid is hoping that the 20 levels will be available for download from the Nintendo eShop.
“But, the reality is that it takes time to add the levels to the 3DS version and it requires approval from Nintendo. I don’t expect Nintendo to have a problem with us adding the levels to the existing game (they allowed Wayforward with Mighty Switch Force), but I cannot say for certain that they will simply say yes, because I am not Nintendo. And besides, once we have added the new content to the 3DS version, we will have to resubmit the game to the ESRB and through Nintendo’s approval process, which just takes time.”
Jools Watsham, the developer behind Dementium 2, has told gaming publication Pocketgamer that he believes the Nintendo 3DS will be the best handheld games console ever.
“Based on what I’ve heard about the 3DS specs, I think it will be the best handheld system to date. To be honest, I think the 3D aspect of the console is just the icing on what is already an extremely powerful system.
“I expect the 3DS to have the graphical power of a GameCube, plus all of the other delights such as two screens, rumble, motion control, Wi-Fi, and an analogue stick. The 3D feature is wonderful, for sure, but it will only be appropriate for certain things. [Nintendo] produces the best handheld systems, [the system will] deliver a platform worthy of a successor to the Nintendo DSi. [I am] very interested in developing for the 3DS.”
