Conker Creator reveals Wii U title - The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup
The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup will represent Gory Detail's most ambitious game.
Conker creator, Christopher Seavor, made it very clear that fans should forget about a Conker 2 in favor of a newer game. Gory Detail, the studio of Seavor's employ, announced their new Wii U game, The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup.
The announcement comes a few weeks after Seavor teased on Twitter the studio's acquisition of Wii U development kits. Following the digital nature of the studio's iOS title - PARASHOOT STAN - Gory Detail will release the new game on the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS eShops.
Speaking NintendoLife, Seavor described The Unlikey Legend of Rusty Pup as a "2D platformer, but a depth to it." Seavor drew comparisons to Lemmings and explained that the game will focus on a "very sad tale. It's not dark as in 'mature' — it's not got 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."
Unsure of Rusty Pup's core mechanic, Seavor will remain secretive until Gory Detail gets a better idea of the mechanics in mind. To provide some detail, he explained that Rusty Pup will let the player control the environment around the character in ensure he doesn't die.
As for when Nintendo owners can see The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup, you will need to wait at least "a year and half turnaround" for development.
