TowerFall Creator Has Been Approached By Nintendo

Game takes inspiration from Smash Bros., GoldenEye 64 and Yoshi's Island
TowerFall may be a time-limited Ouya exclusive for the next few months, but the game has been getting some serious attention thanks to its gorgeous 2D visuals, frantic multiplayer gameplay and surprising depth.
Creator Matt Thorson — who cites Super Smash Bros. Melee, Yoshi's Island and GoldenEye 64 as influences — has told Polygon that Nintendo is one of the parties interested in working with him once the Ouya exclusivity window ends:
Everyone has approached me. At E3, Nintendo talked to me. Sony came to my house. Microsoft has been emailing me. There's a lot of demand for the game. I just want as many people to play it as possible.
I didn't expect this. It's really encouraging.
We can certainly see why — TowerFall looks amazing, as you can see from the trailer below. This would make the perfect 3DS eShop title, but could also work on the Wii U thanks to its multiplayer focus.
Would you pay good cash for this? Sound off in the comments to let us — and the world — know.
