We only just heard that independent developer Gaijin Games had begun work on a title for the Nintendo 3DS, and now another developer has come forward. Speaking on his blog, co-founder of Renegade Kid, Jools Watsham has revealed that his studio is now an officially licensed 3DS developer.
Much like Gaijin Games and its strong support for the Nintendo Wii, Renegade Kid have exclusively developed for the Nintendo DS, having released Dementium: The Ward, Dementium II, and Moon. All three titles recieved positive reception from critics, particularly for having some of the most impressive technology engines running on the platform.
Understandably, the company is yet to reveal any specific 3DS title in the works, but dont be surprised if we see a Dementium III, or perhaps a revival of their cancelled Wii title Son of the Dragon.
In other 3DS related news, a recent interview from CVG with Crytek boss Cevat Yerli revealed that the developers had gone hands-on with the system at E3 back in June, and were even given a demo from an unnamed senior Nintendo official. He described the platform as 'quite awesome', noting it's 'very powerful' graphical processing abilities, and noted that he would not be surprised to see 'high-end gaming' on the platform. When asked about support specifically from Crytek, Yerli stated that nothing had been decided, but the company may look towards putting their CryEngine toolset on the platform, and that there is opportunity for Crytek to work with the platform.
Fingers crossed that we'll be exploring portable Caribbean jungles in the near future.
