Today’s Nintendo eShop news: Chicken Wiggle to get a Nintendo Switch port?, but also…
- Mercenaries Saga Chronicles
- Tiny Metal
- Hyper Sentinel
- Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom
- Puzzle Box Maker
Yesterday, Jools Watsham announced that he was gauging interest for a possible port of Chicken Wiggle for the Nintendo Switch called Chicken Wiggle: Re-Hatched. It would have a level editor and online sharing (just like the Nintendo 3DS version, with levels created on 3DS playable on Nintendo Switch), but also new HD artwork (+ a retro option for players who prefer the original sprites).
If there’s enough interest, a Kickstarter campaign will be launched to fund such a port. The campaign would have a reasonable funding goal: ~5 digits.
If you’re interested, make sure to Retweet the following tweet (and reply to it if you have any comments):
