Mutant Mudds is looking like a valuable IP for Renegade Kid. Starting out as a (rather excellent) 3DS download title, the game later made its way to PC with the sub-title Grannie Edition – thanks to its extra twenty levels in which you play as Max’s Grannie. Later, Renegade Kid confirmed that the bonus Grannie stages would eventually be making their way to the 3DS version via free update.
However, despite confirming that a direct sequel is set for release on 3DS next year, the publisher’s still not done with the original game. Although it didn’t get a mention during today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, Renegade Kid’s Jools Watsham later revealed that Mutant Mudds Deluxe is indeed on its way to the Wii U’s eShop, an image of the game running on a GamePad… and little else.
More information is promised soon – let’s hope it offers more than just an excuse to play the original game in HD.
