Developer Ludosity is not sitting still with its franchises, as their Ittle Dew adventure game makes its way to Nintendo Wii U in North America this week. In a way, this is the game coming full circle.
For those unaware, Ittle Dew is a rather poignant representation of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. It uses a visual flair with strong connections to the SNES classic.
For instance, forests are comprised of thick, round trees and a central castle splits several themed regions around it for a multitude of dungeons with lots of puzzles inside.
Instead of pixel art, however, Ittle Dew uses the studio’s cartoon drawing style with heavy outlines. Still, despite this being a port, it did require some effort to produce, as developer Joel Nystrvm stated:
We’ve been working on this for over three years, so it’s great to finally be able to put out the ultimate version of Ittle Dew on a great console.
As a result, Ittle Dew will be priced at just $9.99 on Nintendo Wii U. Better yet, this should be the same price across all platforms from now on.
Ludosity is using the Ittle Dew characters in other games, such as Card City Nights. They’re also a popular developer for other companies, including other projects such as Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet for tablets and Mojang’s Scrolls game.
