Nintendo Has Been Fantastic To Work With, Says Oddworld Developer

Posted by Damien McFerran

Nintendo's Dan Adelman asked specifically for Stranger’s Wrath on Wii U

Just Add Water CEO and Oddworld Inhabitants development director Stewart Gilray has been siging Nintendo's praises in a recent interview, and states that the company is "fantastic" to work with.

Speaking to Nintendo Everything, Gilray also revealed that NoA indie supremo Dan Adelman asked for Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD on Wii U. Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty! is also coming to Nintendo's console.

Gilray added that in the past Nintendo's hardware and digital presence threw up roadblocks when it came to developing with the Japanese firm, but those issues no longer exist:

Their developer relations man is a fan of the franchise so reached out to us to ask for that title specifically, that’s where the discussions started. In terms of what are they like to work with, they’re fantastic. I’ve NEVER had a problem with working with Nintendo in respect of their people and teams, it’s been a case of a problem in terms of the hardware and indeed the lack of a competent digital outlet, until now.

That's what the Wii U needs - a port of an original Xbox game. That'll sell some systems.

Funny how this happens after just about every Oddworld title has given Nintendo consoles the cold shoulder, without counting the GB/GBC/GBA titles obviously.

Getting Stranger's Wrath whenever it arrives. Glad to hear that Nintendo is actually looking for games for the eShop by going to the developers directly. So many successful kickstarter campaigns seem to prove there is a lot of interest and support from gamers towards indie games.

On here and at PushSquare I'm always reading about how developers, particularly smaller studios, love working with Nintendo and Sony respectively. I never see this kind of news on Xbox-based websites. MS needs to get its head out of its rearend.

@Mqblank

Stranger's Wrath is definitely worth a purchase, it's an awesome game. Personally my favorite in the series.
