A little while ago, Conker’s Bad Fur Day creator Chris Seavor stated that he wanted to make some games for the Wii U. Well, the first of these games has been announced. Titled The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup, Nintendo Life revealed that this game will be coming to both the Wii U eShop and the 3DS eShop. He also explained that this game will have a dark story, but it won’t have the gore or the potty mouth that Conker’s Bad Fur Day had.
“It’s all very much about the story. It’s a very sad tale. It’s not dark as in ‘mature’ — [it doesn’t have] swearing in it, or anything like that. It’s quite a serious and adult story, but still a fun and hopefully playable game with lots going on. There will be moments of dark humour, but nothing gory.”
“It’s a 2D platformer, but [with] depth to it. You physically move in and out of the screen. [It also has] hints of Lemmings in there. The game has a core gameplay mechanic — and when I say mechanic I mean something you do which will effect something else in the game world — which we can’t say because it will give so much away! The main reason I’m being secretive is because we don’t know whether it works or not yet and until we’ve tried it properly, we won’t know. It will change. You put a mechanic in and even the simplest mechanic will throw out a thousand different problems.”
Chris also stated that this game would explore the idea of why the titular Rusty Pup is even there in the first place. He mentioned that there would be some virtual pet elements in the game without going into specifics. When asked about a specific release date, Chris stated that The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup would be released in “a year and a half from now,” so it’s likely that we’ll see this game appear on Nintendo platforms sometime in late 2014.
