Affordable Space Adventures is certainly on our radar here at Nintendo Life - its unique use of the GamePad and integration of co-op has caught our attention, and we've already named it as one of the biggest Wii U games of 2015. A development partnership between KnapNok Games - Spin The Bottle: Bumpie's Party - and Nifflas - Knytt Underground - it's planned as a Wii U exclusive to arrive in Q1 or, as the team's admitted, possibly in April.
It could eventually move beyond the Wii U to Nintendo's other current-gen system, however. In a Reddit AMA today PR man for the team, Anchel Labena, said the following when asked about whether the game could come to 3DS.
Actually, we've been looking into it and we're in talks to see what we can do. There's nothing we can announce yet, but we're obviously prioritizing releasing a great Wii U game first.
That sounds promising - though we've cited co-op as an intriguing part of the game, it also poses a different challenge in single player, with the player responsible for piloting on the TV and concurrently managing systems on the GamePad.
Another question asked was whether Affordable Space Adventures could have more entries in the future, and Nifflas was certainly keen on the idea.
I really want to create a sequel. There are so many puzzle ideas that never made it into the game. Plus I want to experiment with other ships with a different set of systems. First I'll take a break from Affordable Space Adventures though and do something else, but I really want to come back to it one day.
We're certainly interested in the idea of Affordable Space Adventures also coming to 3DS, but first of all we're looking forward to the Wii U entry. Let us know whether it's on your radar, and you can also check out our first impressions of the game.
