Nintendo actually approached Red Thread Games first.
Speaking to EDGE Online, Dreamfall Chapter lead developer Ragnar Tørnquist recently revealed that Red Thread Games is interested in releasing the adventure game for the Nintendo Wii U. Interestingly, it was Nintendo that first got in touch with the developer, and Tørnquist revealed that the process has been a “painless and surprisingly rapid process”.
“Nintendo approached us last autumn, immediately after Dreamfall Chapters was announced—they were, in fact, the first console manufacturer to do so. At that point, however, we weren’t ready to make any commitments regarding engine and platforms, so we decided to wait.
We got back in touch with Nintendo in late May of this year, and they were very interested in working with us. So far, they’ve been very helpful and supportive, and it’s been a painless and surprisingly rapid process.”
Red Thread is also looking at adding GamePad support to the Wii U version. Stay tuned for an official announcement.
