River City Ransom: Underground may come to Wii U, Nintendo 3DS


Conatus Creative turned to Kickstarter when looking to secure funding for their officially licensed follow-up to 1990 fighting genre classic River City Ransom.

Currently sat at $73,317 toward River City Ransom: Underground’s $180,000 goal, their only current stretch goal sees them looking to support the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita if they hit $280,000. That said, they’re also open to releasing on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

“Our original game plan was: focus on funding on Windows, forget about stretch goals until we’re there, then talk about more platforms. But, all good plans…,” Conatus Creative founder Daniel Crenna explained to Nintendo Everything.

“We decided PS4 based on information we had at the time and what’s possible for us technically, but we want people to know that we want this on every platform, especially consoles like Wii U and handhelds like 3DS. So, whether we do it in a stretch goal (and we may not reach our first based on our current trajectory) or we do it funded by sales of our Windows release, the platform story doesn’t end with this Kickstarter.

“As long as we ship a great game, and have strong numbers and a good relationship with our licensor, then we will have all the incentive we need to keep working on this game on as many.”
