Neko Entertainment, developers of the Wii U eShop’s critically acclaimed indie game Puddle, have launched a new Kickstarter campaign for Mysterious Cities of Gold, their latest Wii U and 3DS title based on the hit anime series of the same name. Neko originally planned to make the Nintendo and Apple exclusive only in France, where the series is popular. However, after an overwhelming internet response, the company decided to reverse course and develop both international and PC versions of the game, which the Kickstarter is meant to help fund. The campaign’s goal is $30,000, which will go towards costs for porting the game to PC, as well as English voice acting for the dubbing of cinematic scenes.
Although the game was originally scheduled for a fall release, that time frame appears subject to change with the Kickstarter running all the way through September. To date, the project has reached over $5500 of its $30,000 goal.
Developer Neko Entertainment has announced the North American release date for the Wii U version of Puddle. The puzzle-platform video game, which launched alongside the Wii U console in Europe on November 30th, will hit the Nintendo eShop for Wii U in North America on Thursday, January 31st. In Wii U’s version of the game, a player tilts the Wii U GamePad to guide a puddle of fluid to its destination.
Neko Entertainment’s physics puzzle game, Puddle, is a Wii U launch title. The developer has confirmed that the Wii U version of the game will run at full 1080p and 60 frames per second; you can also play the game entirely on the Wii U GamePad and still retain a 60 FPS. Puddle is scheduled to release November 18th on the Nintendo eShop.
Neko Entertainment’s Puddle, a physics puzzle game in which players must guide a puddle of fluid to its destination by tilting the environment, is coming to Wii U. The game is currently only available for download on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, but will arrive on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U at the console’s launch.
