The former Rare staffers at Nyamyam have confirmed gorgeous adventure Tengami is headed to Wii U, too.

Nyamyam told NintendoLife that it was inspired to bring the game to Wii U after a Twitter poll drew massive support for the port.

“The fact that Tengami was conceived with touch in mind makes it perfect fit for the Wii U GamePad. We think there are some unique features the Wii U has that we can take advantage of to make the game even better,” Nyamyam’s Phil Tossell said.

The indie expressed satisfaction with its dealings with Nintendo so far; the team’s old boss has been making significant strides in its approach to smaller developers lately. In fact, Nyamyam may return to the Wii U in the future.

“I am very intrigued by the possibilities for new types of multiplayer games the Wii U could deliver. It is something I would like to think about in more depth after we have finished Tengami,” Jennifer Schneidereit said.

Tengami was first revealed in August last year, when a group of ex-Rare veterans announced the formation of Nyamyam.
