Chicken Wiggle

Yesterday, Jools Watsham revealed its very first Nintendo 3DS Made in Atooi: Chicken Wiggle. If you want to learn more about it, make sure to check out Nintendo’s Life interview with the man! He explains where the name “Atooi” comes from, what’s the key ideas and features of Chicken Wiggle, if the success of Super Mario Maker inspired him, and more. Click here to check it out!

Rusty Pup

Talking of Nintendo Life, they also posted a pretty lenghty article about Rusty Pup, coming “soon” to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Announced back in 2013, this game (developed by two ex-RARE staffers) has remained rather quiet since then, but it looks like we’re finally getting something concrete.

Nefarious

Yesterday, Josh Hano posted the latest Kickstarter update for Nefarious (coming to Wii U), for two reasons:

  • to let backers know the development team was safe, following the floodings in Louisiana. It did stall out development for a while, but things seems to be back to normal;
  • to share some soundtrack previews!
