In a recent interview by Joystiq, Rob Maher and Tyler Bud are making it their ‘number one goal’ to see a port of Rex Rocket to Nintendo consoles. Their Kickstarter campaign was a rousing success and has currently raised over $7,000 of their $6,000 goal – a relatively small target compared to other Kickstarter pages such as the Wasteland and Torment sequels, but one that was significantly important to their development team.
Rex Rocket – a traditional 2D platformer which pays homage to classic NES titles such as Mario, Mega Man and Metroid – is currently planned for PC, of which you can see the trailer above. But it is Maher’s personal dream, however, to see Rex Rocket on Nintendo consoles:
“That is definitely my number one goal. I’ve been a huge Nintendo fan my entire life, and if Rex Rocket does make it to Nintendo, that will be another dream come true for myself. I know Tyler’s a huge Nintendo fanboy. He’s already started researching what goes into getting on the platform and all the little intricacies that go along with it.”
Rex Rocket is hoping for a January 2014 release on PC, so it’s still a long way off and the Wii U or 3DS port even longer still. But is it a title that you’d like to see on both consoles?
