It's been a while since we reported on The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup, a new title for the Wii U and 3DS eShops from former Rare staffers Chris Seavor and Shawn Pile. Since bringing you the exclusive news that the title was headed to Nintendo formats, things have been a little on the quiet side as the two developers work feverishly on bringing the game to market.

That silence has been broken by some fresh posts on the Gory Detail blog, and a slight update of the game's official website. Seavor has also published some new video clips on the blog which show off the game's exquisite animation, and has also shared some doodles from the game's very early development - when it was known as Toc.

Rusty Pup is shaping up to be one of our most anticipated eShop releases - are you still excited about playing it? Let us know by posting a comment below.
