Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham has announced on Twitter that Mutant Mudds Deluxe could very well be headed for a June release on the Wii U. Always looking to keep his fans in the loop when it comes to development, Watsham revealed over Twitter that the platformer game had been submitted to Nintendo of America, not long after he had spruced up and polished the title’s final touches. He said:
“Mutant Mudds Deluxe has been submitted to NOA! We always try to make it as bug-free as possible, but it could come back. Fingers crossed. :)
“A June release is looking good! :)”
But he hasn’t abandoned his Mutant Mudds fans in Europe, as he added:
“News of Mudds Deluxe submission to Europe to come soon. Sorry for the delay.”
After Mutant Mudds Deluxe was delayed until the second quarter of this year, it finally appears as if the title will hit the Wii U eShop soon. Jools Watsham, co-founder of game developer Renegade Kid, has posted on Twitter saying that the game is in its final stages of development. He said:
We’re in the final stretch of Mutant Mudds Deluxe for Wii U. Polishing it up now. Hoping to submit to NOA this week! Fingers crossed. :)
The debut edition of Nintendo Force magazine has a special scoop on Mutant Mudds Deluxe for the Wii U. Mutant Mudds Deluxe will include all the content found throughout the Nintendo 3DS game, including the Grannie levels DLC. The game will also feature 20 new “parallel universe” stages each with a ghostly theme. Mutant Mudds Deluxe will feature a total of 80 levels with plenty of collectable and speed runs to achieve. Creator Jools Watsham explained to Nintendo Force that he wanted to bring Mutant Mudds to Wii U to see how good the game would look on an HD TV.
“The thought of playing Mutant Mudds on an HDTV is a very exciting one for me. I have always been a huge fan of handheld gaming, but bringing the Mudds experience to the living room feels very grand. With the fact that Nintendo has been easy and awesome to work with in regards to the 3DS eShop, I knew that bringing Mutant Mudds to the Wii U eShop would be equally pleasurable.”
“How accessible the hardware manufacturers make their digital outlets is a big deal for small developers, and Nintendo has proven that they understand that. Developing games is difficult enough without having to worry about the “shop” you wish to sell it in.”
“My brain is full of Nintendo thoughts, and I can’t help but be inspired by the amazing games of Nintendo’s past. On a subconscious level the Ghost Houses from Super Mario World must have crept into my mind and spoke to me. I do not have any other explanation for why there are now ghosts in the game! Well, apart from the fact that ghosts are cool and add a nice sense of mystery and mischief.”
The Wii U version of Mutant Mudds, titled Mutant Mudds Deluxe, will feature exclusive content, including 20 brand-new levels, another power-up and some new enemies, according to the first issue of Nintendo Force, a new magazine that centers upon games released on Nintendo platforms.
The additional levels in Mutant Mudds Deluxe are filled with ghost versions of old enemies, as well as new ghost creatures. Because the platformer will be released on Nintendo’s new console, its developer and publisher, Renegade Kid, might include Miiverse functionality. Mutant Mudds Deluxe will soon launch in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.
