is reporting that developer Nyamyam has confirmed that their pop-up book and Japanese papercraft-inspired title Tengami will be making its way to the Wii U eShop in 2014, alongside the release on PC, iOS and Mac.
In an exclusive statement with Nintendolife, Nyamyam revealed that the decision was made after an overwhelming amount of people responded to the developer when asked whether Tengami should come to the Wii U.
Last year we asked on Twitter whether you would like to see Tengami on the Wii U. The response was so overwhelmingly positive that we began the process of bringing Tengami on the Wii U to life. It is with great pleasure that I can finally announce Nyamyam is now an authorized Nintendo developer. On top of that Wii U dev kits arrived this morning and we are thrilled to be starting development soon.
Our sincerest gratitude goes out to everyone who encouraged us to pursue Tengami on the Wii U. It is because of your support that Tengami is coming to the Wii U. Thank you!
Nintendolife was also able to secure an interview with Nyamyam's Jennifer Schneidereit and Phil Tossell, who revealed that working with Nintendo has become a lot easier, and that the console company are "definitely reaching out to the community." When asked why they thought the Wii U would work so well with Tengami, Tossell revealed that "Tengami was conceived with touch in mind makes it perfect fit for the Wii U GamePad."
