Kickstarter funded Buddy & Me was hoping to come to the Wii U after a stretch goal was added to provide extra support for the Nintendo console port. Sunbreak Games reached their goal of $40,000 but didn’t quite make it to the Wii U target of $55,000. However, that is not to say that it will never reach the console, thankfully, as Sunbreak Games have announced that they will try to find the financial backing to provide their fans with their fantasy forest platformer.
“First up, let me say that we owe our loyal Nintendo fans so much. You guys have been amazing, and are one of the biggest reasons this Kickstarter survived after its first three weeks. You’ve reminded the team of how much our previous games meant to you, and really inspired the team. We will not forget that. We don’t want to let you down.
“Bottom line, it does cost a lot extra to port to Wii U, and we will need to find that funding somehow, somewhere, sometime. We can’t in any way promise or guarantee it until we’ve figured out how to do it… but what we can promise, is that we’ll try.
“You’ll be happy to know, we’ve already reached out to Nintendo (Nintendo of America headquarters is just a few miles away from us), and are trying to figure out exactly what it would take to get development kits, and get more familiar with the technology.”
