Tribute Games has been given approved developer status by Nintendo, which means we should be seeing some software from the studio hitting either the Wii U or 3DS eShop.

It's not known what games Tribute will be bringing to Nintendo's systems, but the company's recent title — Mercenary Kings — is a possibility.

More developer support is always a positive thing — are you looking forward to seeing what Tribute can achieve on the Nintendo's hardware? Post a comment to tell us what you think.
