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!


    • Well? What were you expecting? First of all this is on extremely limited hardware, it is also a downloadable title that must fit in under 2 gigabytes, what are you expecting? Brand new Forza graphics? I’m just interested in the online aspect and features, sounds interesting, if it gets an 8/10 or higher I might look into it. Also we haven’t seen much of it, it may look a LOT better in motion on the 3DS screen.


        • Well you can’t judge one frame in a blown up picture. That picture doesn’t tell anything.

          I imagine this game will look OK when it’s in motion on the smaller screen.


          • But it looks like something the DS would have no problem running, besides the developper makes a great deal about overhauling the game and putting hi res frames…. it reminds me of some Final fantasy spinoff or catlevania, i don’t know, for the wii that had a commercial saying it was “one of the best looking games on wii” and it didn’t even stand close to Metroid Prime1 much less Corruption


      • The 3DS despite it’s said “limited hardware” still manage to pump out beautiful games like Kid Icarus: Uprising, Kingdom Hearts: DD, DOA:Dimensions, Super Mario 3D land, LoZ:OoT 3D, Super Street Fighter IV:3D, and Resident Evil: Revelations. So there is no reason that these games should look like they belong to the PS1.


        • I know that, I own most of those games, but these developers aren’t as skilled, and they don’t have the budget to PUSH the hardware beyond its limits. Yes I know it could look better, but I am mostly able to forgive them because it is a download only title, now if it was retail, I would expect it to be much better, but since its most likely going to cost less than 10 dollars, I am fine with the way it looks. And who knows, maybe the graphics will be polished a little more before it comes out.


          • sub DS graphics on 3DS is 3DS WEAK HARDWARE lol @ a clear ds to 3ds port with a tuny budget limited hardware DREAMON VITA PURCHOSER OF DUMB


  1. How can you say a game looks shit based off of one screen shot?!?
    Also, you at the top. Are you going to say every racing game on 3ds is a rip off of Mario kart, just because it’s using a formula that’s been adopted by developers since the dawn of time?…..Jesus Christ……


      • I think it is because the larger pictures just show off the absolutely horrible resolution of the 3DS. It is stretched, its still, the colors aren’t accurate. When on the 3DS screen, we get it in motion, the screen its desighned for, and its in 3D! It literally looks 10X better on the native screen.


      • I don’t know about Barbie, and while it isn’t my type of game, Cooking Mama has been quite the popular series. The DS games have sold millions of copies.

        I doubt that this ATV game will sell even close to that much, but I’m sure some people will still enjoy it. There’s always that niche group who will buy and enjoy these type of games.


        • Im puzzled how people who doesnt like something force others not to like it too,you may have saw in my comments that i dont like sertain games and console but trying to convincente some1 just cause they dont like is stupid.


  2. They should of gone with a more Vibrant & Colorful Art Style like Cel Shade because the Realistic looking Graphics they’re trying to go for looks like Sh*t. (;


  3. That is one nice looking PS1 game. You have GOT to be kidding me. Renegade Kid is really starting to piss me off. From releasing Mutant Mudds for $10.00 on the eshop, then turning around and selling THE SAME GAME with ADDED CONTENT to IOS for a buck, to his shitty ass comments about pulling support due to “piracy concerns” when he devs for the PC which has the highest piracy percentage out there. This one takes the cake. If you’re just gonna pump the shop full of DS-level shovelware, piracy will shoot up just to get your sorry asses off the platform.
