Runbow Pocket Release Date Announced - Also Working On New IP For Switch

It's been a while since we've heard about Runbow Pocket, but 13AM Games always let me know it's coming. Now we know what day it will be available.

In a post on Nintendo LifeAlex Rushdy, CEO and Creative Director at 13AM Games, announced that Runbow Pocket will come to June 20th in North America, and Europe for the new Nintendo 3DS, and new Nintendo 2DS. Alex even went into some of the trouble they had in porting their multiplayer Wii U game:

As part of our company culture, we don’t like keeping our fans in the dark as to why a game has been delayed or changed in some way since reveal, so I’d like to answer some of the questions that you guys might have about the game. It was a very difficult process to squeeze a large Wii U game into the New 3DS, especially when the engine it is built in is not our own. Being a pilot project for Unity New 3DS meant we had to face a cavalcade of technical difficulties, creating a new networking system, creating an e-commerce plug-in, figuring out how to maximize performance with significantly smaller CPU, GPU and memory compared to Wii U, and reorganizing all the UI and UX to work on the lower resolution dual screens. 

Alex also mentioned some contests they are running on their Twitter, so check out the full Nintendo Life article for more.  

We also get a tease at 13AM Games next project, which will be a single player action game on Switch that is also "weird", and distinctly "13AM". With E3 a few weeks ago, maybe we'll find out more, but for now we'll have to sit tight and wait. 

Will you be picking up Runbow Pocket in June?
