Renegade Kid In Talks With Publisher For Nintendo 3DS Game


Dementium: The Ward developer, Renegade Kid, aren’t quite done with the Nintendo DS yet. While there isn’t much scope for developing more games with their dev team’s full weight behind them, they’re in talks with publishers about budget titles to sell to a more mainstream audience.


Renegade Kid co-founder, Jools Watsham, also reveals they’re in talks with a publisher about a Nintendo 3DS game. “Right now, we’re in heavy get-new-projects mode. There is one 3DS title that we’re in talks about with a publisher,” Watsham wrote in a post on his blog.


“It is a really cool game,” he continues. “It would be a conversion of an existing title, which we would bring to the 3DS. Let’s call it code-named “Planet.” In theory, we’re very close to signing this deal with the publisher. But, anything can happen in the world of business, so all we can do is hope everything stays its course and we sign it soon.”


At first, our thoughts went to recent Renegade Kid FPS, Moon, but when we wrote in to Jools asking if the game was a conversion of one of their DS titles or the aforementioned publisher’s, he was kind enough to reply:


“If you read my post again carefully, you’ll notice that I did not say that it was a conversion of a DS game, and unfortunately I cannot comment on the origin of said game at this time.”


Renegade Kid have only released Nintendo DS games in recent years, so if it’s one of their own games, it would have to be a DS title. If it isn’t, however, well…there are a lot of publishers out there…
