Jools Watsham recently confirmed that Renegade Kid is working on an unannounced first-person shooter for the Nintendo 3DS, with the official unveil taking place at PAX East this weekend. Continue reading
With Mutant Mudds Deluxe set to arrive on the Wii U’s eShop before the end of Q1, it looks as though Nintendo gamers are in for another retro-flavoured treat with what’s surely the final reiteration of the original 3DS gem, before development on its true sequel gets fully underway. Continue reading
ATV Wild Ride begun life as an under-appreciated racing gem for the Nintendo DS, from Mutant Mudds developer Renegade Kid. Following its lack of success at retail, however, the US-based studio is giving the title a new lease of life as a download-exclusive 3DS title, which is currently set to launch in both Europe and North America before the end of March. Continue reading
With Renegade Kid’s 3DS gem, Mutant Mudds, now also available on PC and iOS – not to mention its updated Wii U port which is due out before the end of March – the indie developer has evidently begun work on the sequel; which was confirmed a number of months back. Continue reading
Whilst the game itself has yet to be revealed, Jools Watsham – a co-founder of Renegade Kid – has confirmed that the developer is indeed working on a second title for Nintendo’s Wii U system, alongside Mutant Mudds Deluxe. More information will supposedly appear online next month.
In other news, development on ATV Wild Ride 3D is nearing completion and is – as with Mutant Mudds Deluxe in the Wii U’s eShop – on track to release as a digital 3DS download at some point during the first financial quarter of 2013.

Mutant Mudds is looking like a valuable IP for Renegade Kid. Starting out as a (rather excellent) 3DS download title, the game later made its way to PC with the sub-title Grannie Edition - thanks to its extra twenty levels in which you play as Max’s Grannie. Later, Renegade Kid confirmed that the bonus Grannie stages would eventually be making their way to the 3DS version via free update. Continue reading
Earlier this year, WayForward‘s Mighty Switch Force! became the first Nintendo eShop title to receive a major update post-release; the free download adding five new levels, and tweaking certain other aspects of the game.
Now, following an expanded PC port of Mutant Mudds and rumours aplenty of Grannie Edition‘s twenty extra levels coming to the 3DS, Jools Watsham of Renegade Kid has confirmed that a free update to the original title will indeed bring the PC game’s twenty bonus stages home to Nintendo’s handheld: Continue reading
Jools Watsham of Renegade Kid has today confirmed that one of the 3DS’s finest games, Mutant Mudds, is being ported to PC under the alias Mutant Mudds: Grannie Edition. How does this affect owners of the 3DS game, though? It was also confirmed that the Grannie Edition will include an extra twenty levels which may well be on their way to the 3DS game via downloadable content.
The PC port’s press release reads as follows:
“In addition to the 40 challenging levels featured in the original Mutant Mudds, players who purchase this special ‘Grannie Edition’ on PC will be treated to 20 brand new levels!”
And then, when queried on Twitter, Renegade Kid’s Jools Watsham posted the following response:
“Many are asking if the 20 new levels in the special ‘Grannie Edition’ of Mudds coming to PC will make their way to the eShop. It’s possible.”
Great news for those of us who’ve cleared the standalone game and are looking for some extra longevity with the title. Whether these levels, should they make it to the Nintendo 3DS, will be free (much like Mighty Switch Force‘s DLC) remains to be seen, but surely more Mutant Mudds would be worth paying for?
This week’s European Nintendo eShop update is arguably the best we’ve seen since the launch of the service in June of last year. With an original 3DS download title, the first downloadable content for a retail 3DS game and a brand-new demo, there’s plenty on offer for everyone with a 3DS and an Internet connection.
