Developer Interview: Neko Entertainment on Kung Fu Rabbit's WiiU Debut

#1P_A_N_D_A_M_A_NPosted 4/4/2013 9:32:39 AM
Last week we were able to exclusively reveal Neko Entertainment's second Wii U eShop title, 2D platformer Kung Fu Rabbit. It's a big-screen conversion of an iOS / Android game that was released in 2012, and features the martial arts-trained bunny battling against Universal Evil in an attempt to rescue his colony of kidnapped disciples.

We had a chat with Laurent Lichnewsky, Neko's managing director, and Sébastien Chipot, QA manager, about the game's origins, how it takes advantage of Wii U and if there are any plans to bring other mobile titles to the platform. We couldn't resist the chance to get a little update on the sales of its first Wii U eShop game, Puddle, either.

Yep, taking into account that Europe and US Wii U market can only grow, we’re pretty satisfied.

sounded like it sold pretty badly.. hopefully their optimism pays off with kung fu rabbit

Only on Gamefaqs does "satisfied with sales" mean that it sold poorly.

Why do you feel the need to post about bad indie titles? It makes the Wii U look more pathetic and I highly doubt you really care for this.

I've bought almost every eShop game on the Wii U and a ton of games on the DS. Good games are good games.

You weren't there for the time he posted about Cosmic Highway. That was definitely the low point.

Understand that Panda will post any WiiU news (as long as its positive) for the purpose of bringing news to the board for people who don't really look for it. Games coming to the console counts as positive news and people may be interested in buying such games on the WiiU, so it makes sense for him to post this stuff here.

Personally, I'm not remotely interested in this game at all because it looks really boring. But others might be.

So now making stuff up equals "reading between the lines"?
