In news that shouldn't necessarily be surprising, considering the trends and precedents set by others, Renegade Kid has announced that it'll be launching a Kickstarter campaign for a console game on 2nd April, starting a countdown on its website and no doubt intriguing fans in the process.

It's a developer and publisher that's likely to be familiar to plenty of Nintendo download gamers, with its most successful title — Mutant Mudds — also arriving on Sony consoles as well as PC last year. Its been prolific on the 3DS eShop — in North America in particular — with titles such as ATV Wild Ride 3D and Bomb Monkey, in addition to Mutant Mudds Deluxe on the Wii U eShop. None of those three titles have made it to Europe, with the blame being attributed to the ratings processes in Europe and Australia, in particular.

The studio is particularly busy, however, with the episodic Moon Chronicles and Treasurenauts on the way as well as previously announced but undated projects such as Mutant Mudds 2 and Cult County on the 3DS; oh, there's also contract work with the company producing Razor Global Domination Pro Tour for the Wii U and other home consoles.

WayForward, of course, is a familiar and experienced developer that previously utilised Kickstarter to fund Shantae: Half-Genie Hero for home console platforms, and it'll be intriguing to see which project Renegade Kid is launching in this way.
