We Could See Inchworm Animation Come to 3DS

Inching closer

DSiWare animation suite Inchworm Animation is certainly an accomplished package, but already developer Bob Sabiston is looking to the future for the series.

Talking to Joystiq, Sabiston discussed a potential outing for the series on 3DS, revealing some of the features omitted from the DSiWare original:

People are asking a lot about a 3DS version, and I would love to do a 3DS native version. Last summer, in order to get practical and get this thing out there, I had to strip out a bunch of ambitious stuff that was working, like keyframing, a scrolling timeline, sound-effects and audio recording.

Obviously it would be nice to restore those and the wireless features if possible. So we'll see, if I find the time and energy to continue with it I would love to have an Inchworm 3D out there.

Sabiston notes he's a little burnt-out on Inchworm currently, but if that passionate is reignited we could see some 3D animation come to 3DS. Nintendo's own package Flipnote Memo is down for a release in the 3DS eShop later this year.
