n-Space, a developer whose games have been published by both Activision and Disney on Nintendo systems, says that they are no longer developing for Nintendo systems due to a “low demand” for publishing on Nintendo systems. n-Space produced several popular titles for the Nintendo DS system, including Goldeneye and five Call of Duty games. On the 3DS, they are responsible for Skylanders: Giants as well as Heroes of Ruin, a title published by Square Enix that did not sell as expected. n-Space, who once had a very close relationship with Nintendo, hopes that they will once again see games greenlighted for Nintendo consoles, but for the time being, they are not working on any projects. Dan O’Leary of n-Space had the following to say:
“It’s kind of a sad thing to say, because for a long time n-Space has been known as a Nintendo-friendly developer. We certainly have loved all our time working with them.
“We think their hardware’s great. We think more often than not they have the right mindset in the difficult game world we live in. There’s just very low demand right now for their work through the publisher side. Which is ironic, I think that’ll probably swing back.
“The news was just talking about how Nintendo was beating everybody with hardware sales. The DS and 3DS sales curves have been slower than publishers would have liked. That may change, but I can tell you right now we’re not working on anything.”
