Today’s Indie news:
- Renegade Kid
- FAST Racing Neo
- U Host
Yesterday, Jools Watsham from Renegade Kid shared some anecdotes on his Twitter account. First, he revealed that Renegade Kid actually pitched a GameBoy Advance port of Demon’s Crest to Capcom. Unfortunately, it was rejected, due to the SNES game not selling enough. But it wasn’t the only project they pitched to Capcom: the studio actually pitched a lot of things to them and Konami over the years, but all of them were rejected.
Here’s a picture that shows a (rejected) pitch for a 2.5D port of Ninja Five-O from the GameBoy Advance to the Nintendo DS:
FAST Racing Neo
Today, Shin’en Multimedia talked a bit about the upcoming update for FAST Racing Neo. They apologised for the delay, which is due to them updating all three versions (Europe, North America, and Japan) at once, which takes a lot of time (between testing, and lot check). They’re still working on it, and hope to be able to announce a release date soon.
Moira is a “Spellcrafting Action Platformer” inspired by GameBoy games, which may be coming soon to Wii U. It’s one of the stretchgoals of a Kickstarter campaign: you can click here to learn more about the game and the campaign itself. For a Wii U version to be released, the developers need 36 000€. They need 12 000€ for the base campaign, with 3 783€ pledged as of writing (with 30 days left).

Early this morning, Andy Ford confirmed on Twitter that U Host (already available in Europe) would be released this Thursday in North America.
