Several of you have already played Elliot Quest, the new side scrolling adventure game from Ansimuz Games that takes several design and gameplay cues from the likes of Zelda II and Kid Icarus. We awarded it an 8/10 in our review, citing minor performance issues and frustrating pacing as main issues. Whatever way you cut it, it’s a solid entry to the Wii U’s growing library and stands as an excellent example of what can come out of the Nintendo Web Framework.
In a recent AMA on Reddit, Luis Zuno - the game’s creator - mentioned the possibility of a 3DS port. When one reader asked him about it, he had this to say:
I would love that. But first I need to consult it with Playeveryware if it would doable and worthy.
So, it appears that there are plans to explore a release on Nintendo’s handheld, though the outcome is still up in the air. The HTML5 based engine this was developed in would make it difficult to port to 3DS, but not impossible. It will really depend on whether or not PlayEveryWare - the game’s publisher - deems it profitable.
What do you think? Would you like to see Elliot Quest on the 3DS? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
I'd buy on WiiU or 3DS, if it comes to Europe.
Duh! Bring it to the 3DS!
umm... so wiiU = profit, but 3DS = not profit?
well, I guess wiiU owners are a bit more starved for software, giving this game an edge there, but there is heftier competition on the 3DS.
I for one would consider buying it on the 3ds, but no guarantee
I'd prefer it to be on my 3DS !
3DS has more then enough software. WII U please. Nuff said
I will buy it on anything!
Well I'm not going to buy it twice, so no. But I'm sure others would love it.
Yes please, instant buy for me.
@gurtifus I'm glad it's on the Wii U, but I think I'd be much further along in it if it were on my 3DS
It would be more profitable on the 3DS. I love my WiiU, but that is exactly where it belongs. The 3DS clearly has more users and I believe this game seems like it belongs on Nintendo's handheld console.
Looks like it is meant to be on 3DS. It reminds me Cave Story.
I think it would look great on the 3DS, especially with the 3D.
...you've got a deal if it comes to 3DS.
I'd get it on 3DS.
Isn't Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars already available on the Nintendo 3DS though? That's a Nintendo Web Framework game too, don'cha know?
Actually, I skipped this because it wasn't on 3DS. Bring it over and its as good as bought.
Instant buy for me if it comes to the 3DS, add 2.5 seconds to that if it doesn't come with crossbuy.
If I buy this, and I might, I'll likely get it for Wii U. Doesn't seem like a game that 3D graphics would enhance enough and if I want a portable aspect, Wii U tablet has that covered.
I'm going to buy it either way, but I always appreciate the choice to play it on the go.
I did buy it for Wii U and really enjoyed this game. Great stuff, might even double dip if the 3DS port adds anything.
