Turtle Tale making waves toward a Wii U release


With Saturnine Games having indicated that Turtle Tale was still on track for spring, we thought that we wouldn’t hear any more about the 3DS destined Nintendo eShop title until a solidified release date.

Now, in a rather interesting reveal, developer Ed Di Geronimo has revealed that he has begun porting the title across to Wii U. Whilst too early to even guess at a release date, he shared some thoughts on his experiences with the console.

“Early thoughts on Wii U dev… the system is really, really easy to develop for. Took about a week to get the 3DS game running on it”, he discussed. “Also rather impressed with the architecture of the Wii U. No obvious trouble spots. Seems very well balanced”.

Despite such positive experiences, he explained that his gut was that he will still focus on 3DS development moving forward, although porting to Wii U will always remain a strong possibility for the future due to ease.
