UK development team, Nyamyam, has confirmed that their upcoming game in development for iPad called “Tengami,” will also make it to Wii U. This is what the team had to say in a recent public statement:
“Last year we asked on Twitter whether you would like to see Tengami on the Wii U. The response was so overwhelmingly positive that we began the process of bringing Tengami on the Wii U to life. It is with great pleasure that I can finally announce Nyamyam is now an authorized Nintendo developer. On top of that Wii U dev kits arrived this morning and we are thrilled to be starting development soon.
Our sincerest gratitude goes out to everyone who encouraged us to pursue Tengami on the Wii U. It is because of your support that Tengami is coming to the Wii U. Thank you!”
Seems like the fans have clearly spoken and another potentially great title is headed Wii U’s way! Here’s a brief description and video of the game:
“In Tengami you explore a beautifully paper crafted pop-up world, with an art style inspired by traditional Japanese arts and crafts. Tengami is an adventure game, full of wonder and mystery, set in Japan of ancient dark fairy tales.”
Nyamyam was formed by employees from the former development studio “Rare,” before the Microsoft buyout. Personally, I’m glad to see another small development studio on board with Wii U, and I don’t mean that in a bad way. I think Wii U’s unpopularity with mainstream development studios may be a blessing in disguise as this makes way for great titles and places the spotlight on deserving development teams. Wii U may just be the console that indie developers and smaller studios flock to…at least this is what seems to be happening. Anyway, what are your thoughts? Looking forward to Tengami?
