Renegade Kid was a powerhouse on the Nintendo DS. With technical marvel Moon, the survival horror Dementium series, and the eShop game Mutant Mudds (3DS) and Mutant Mudds Deluxe (WiiU), Renegade Kid has become prominent name for Nintendo. Developer and co-starter Jools Watsham today has detailed what to expect from Renegade Kid in 2014.
Treasurenauts was expected to see a 2013 release but was pushed back to 2014.
“The game means a lot to us, and we want to do it right. We need more time to make it the game we want it to be. We’re aiming for a Q1 2014 release, and will have information on a more accurate date soon”
Treasurenauts is a 2D platforming game with excellent music and very colorful sprites coming to the 3DS.
Cult County is a survival horror game that looks very similar to the Dementium series, which was a great series on the DS. Jools doesn’t give many details or updates about the title, but does say to expect news in 2014 about the title.
Mutant Mudds 2
Due to the polishing and testing of Treasurenauts, Mutant Mudds 2 has been delayed. Jools does give some reasoning why which makes sense.
“We feel that it is healthier/better for us to develop a new 2D platform game in between Mutant Mudds and Mutant Mudds 2 to maintain perspective on what Mutant Mudds 2 needs to be”
Fear not Mutant Mudds fans, as there is a free update coming to the 3DS game in 2014.
“3DS owners of Mutant Mudds (in NA and EU) should be on the look-out for a free update sometime in 2014. It will be luxurious! ;)”
As with any developing studio, there are other unnamed and unannounced projects coming from Renegade Kid. Two new games are confirmed by Jools. One is a 3DS game that will be announced in January 2014 and is scheduled to release midway through the year. The other project will be announced later in the year.
It seems like Renegade Kid will have a full plate in 2014 with some big and bold titles coming down the pipeline. What titles are you looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below.
