Jools Watsham, the creator of Mutant Mudds Deluxe for Wii U, has said on Twitter that he believes that Nintendo’s struggling Wii U console will be the Gamecube of this hardware generation. The console which had some absolutely tremendous games, but simply failed to entice consumers away from the competition.
“The Wii U will be the GameCube of this hardware generation. The platform that had some truly great games, but somehow lost the console war.”
Mutant Mudds Deluxe developer Renegade Kid are hosting a competition to get your hands on a copy of the Wii U game. Starting today until midnight June 12 CT, Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham will be giving away three free copies of the title – due for release on June 13 – to the person who produces the best image of and or relating to Mutant Mudds.
Announced on both his Twitter and Blogger accounts, Watsham says that anyone can enter, but the copies will only work on North American Wii U consoles – so if you’re a North American resident, why not get those creative juices flowing? You can find the full details here, and remember that you can submit an original drawing, a digital, or use existing images on the web to create an interesting collage.
The Wii U version of Mutant Mudds, titled Mutant Mudds Deluxe, supports a number of control options. On the Wii U, players be able to control the game’s main protagonist, Max, with one of six methods: Wii U GamePad, Wii U Pro Controller Wii Remote, Wii Remote Plus, Nunchuk combination and Wii Classic Controller.

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.

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.

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.
