Nnooo, the developer behind the acclaimed WiiWare title escapeVektor: Chapter 1, has received Wii U development kits as the studio becomes an approved developer. The Australian-based team will begin work on the upcoming console following the release of Spirit Hunters Inc on DSiWare, and the new escapeVektor title for 3DS and Vita.
Nnooo has been developing titles for Nintendo since the studio was formed in 2006 and is best known for US WiiWare launch title Pop, the myLifeCollected range of lifestyle applications for Nintendo DSiWare, and most recently escapeVektor: Chapter 1 for WiiWare.
“We’re thrilled to receive developer approval for this exciting new console, ” said Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo. “We can’t wait to see what the console is capable of and already have a number of ideas we’d like to experiment with.
“We’re very close to finishing Spirit Hunters Inc and escapeVektor,” said Watt. “We’ll be showcasing the games at Gamescom in Cologne in the middle of August. Once these games are completed we’ll be prototyping some ideas for the Wii U to get a feel for what we can do. We’ve already had a quick play with the hardware and everyone in the studio is super impressed by the GamePad and the capabilities of the Wii U itself.”
