Do you love retro platform games with 16-bit pixel style graphics? Do you like games that actually utilize the Nintendo 3DS’ glasses free 3D in a meaningful way and is near essential to the gameplay? If so, you probably loved Mutant Mudds when it was released on the 3DS eShop a year ago. You were probably also hoping for a sequel.
Developer Renegade Kid has officially confirmed today via Twitter that Mutant Mudds 2 is in development. When Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham was sent a tweet saying that they were hoping for a sequel to the first game, Watsham replied “A sequel will happen, for sure.” UK gaming site Nintendo Fans Online then tweeted Watsham, asking if that last tweet was confirming a sequel, to which Watsham replied “Yes, Mutant Mudds 2 is confirmed.”
No release date has been announced yet but Watsham did say “We are hoping both games [Mutant Mudds Deluxe and Mutant Mudds 2] are released in this quarter. No dates yet.” Mutant Mudds Deluxe is the Wii U version of the game that’s coming to the Wii U eShop and will feature exclusive content. We know that Mutant Mudds 2 will be coming to the Nintendo eShop but whether it will come to the 3DS eShop, the Wii U eShop or both remains to be acknowledged. No word yet on a PC or iOS version either though the first game saw releases on those platforms as well.
One fan suggesting Renegade Kid release a cartridge collection of Mutant Mudds 1 and 2. Watsham replied “that would be awesome,” and later tweeted, “RT if you would buy a Mutant Mudds 1 & 2 combo pack on cartridge for 3DS!” This is interesting considering Watsham recently expressed concern over 3DS catridges recently being pirated.
I myself managed to play the PC version of Mutant Mudds and enjoyed what I played. I’m pleased to hear there’s a sequel but as I don’t own either a 3DS or Wii U, I have to hope for a PC version later on. What about you? Are you now anticipating a Mutant Mudds 2 game or do you not care? Have you played the first game? Did you enjoy it? Leave a comment below and let us know.
