This week has been filled with news about former Nintendo indie contact Dan Adelman, who announced he was leaving the company on Monday. Adelman had been in contention with Nintendo because of comments he made on Twitter that criticized the Nintendo 3DS’ region-locking, that Nintendo infamously refuses to get rid of despite all major competitors having region-free consoles this generation. After being banned from Twitter, Dan noted that he was increasingly unhappy at the company and decided to leave.
Since then, Adelman has been discussing his role at his former company, as well as offering constructive criticism concerning the Wii U name. Answering questions on popular service Ask.fm, one fan asked Adelman if there was any game he wanted to see get put onto Wii U that never made it. Adelman’s answer was Grim Fandango, a game from Double Fine Studios that released in 1998. Tim Schafer finally secured the rights to have a remake of the game, which will be exclusive to the PlayStation platforms when it launches.
