Neko Entertainment is the developer of the Nintendo Wii U eShop title Puddle and Cubed3 was able to interview Sébastien Chipot-Delys of Neko Entertainment. Chipot-Delys was asked about whether or not they have other projects coming to the Nintendo Wii U and if developing Puddle on the Wii U inspired them to continue to work on that platform. Here is what he said:
Yes, we learned a lot by developing Puddle on Wii U, and it will be definitely helpful for the future and our next titles on Wii U!
Cubed3 also asked him about whether or not they are planning on any Nintendo 3DS games. Here is what Chipot-Delys said:
I cannot tell you more for the moment, but it is a possibility…amongst a lot of others!
I guess you can look forward to Neko Entertainment bringing more games to the Nintendo Wii U platform and maybe we will see some games on the Nintendo 3DS.
Rich of IGN had the following to say on Twitter:
Some very interesting 3DS-related news coming over the next… week or so. Stay tuned for more. Sorry. I’m going to be that guy today. =)
What “very interesting 3DS-related news” is IGN going to talk about? Is it going to be a 3DS game that we don’t know about or new details for a game that has already been announced? I guess we will have to wait and see what is brought out during the next “week or so.”
