Here’s a video interview for Axiom Verge, with some off-screen footage of the Wii U version of the game:

Renegade Kid

Last week, Jool Watsham explained that sales of Dementium Remastered were only “ok”, and that they were currently debating whether or not they will finish the development of Dementium Remastered II. But before they take any decision, they will finish development on a smaller-scale game for the PS4/XB1 with Nighthawk Interactive.

But what about Treasurenauts? Fans have nothing to worry: development is still ongoing. Here’s what Jools Watsham had to say about that:

We are still actively developing Treasurenauts. We partnered with Nighthawk to ensure the game gets finished and released. We’ll have more information on that project in the future.

Shovel Knight

All console versions of Shovel Knight received some exclusive content, but the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions didn’t get an exclusive character like that PlayStation and Xbox version did. Is there still some chance for a Nintendo cameo? Here’s what Sean Velasco from Yacht Club Games had to say about that:

I wouldn’t say [the door] is 100 percent closed, but I’d be surprised if it happened. That said, I would have said the same for the amiibo a year ago…
