Mutant Mudds 2 confirmed for 3DS

A sequel to Renegade Kid's Mutant Mudds is in the works. Mutant Mudds 2 was confirmed by company co-founder Jools Watsham, who then gauged fan interest regarding a cartridge release versus the Nintendo eShop.

"A sequel will happen, for sure," Watsham tweeted (via Eurogamer). Asked if that meant an official confirmation, he spelled it out more explicitly: "Yes, Mutant Mudds 2 is confirmed." He initially said "both games" are due out this quarter, leading to some confusion, but clarified that he was referring to ATV 3D and Mutant Mudds Deluxe, not Mutant Mudds 2.

Watsham also talked to fans about whether they would prefer to get the game on the 3DS eShop or as a combined set on the cartridge, but stopped short of confirming the latter would happen. "The whole Mutant Mudds 1 & 2 on cartridge vs. MM2 on eShop thing is just out of curiosity," he said. "Interested to hear what your thoughts are."

The references to cartridges and the eShop certainly point toward a 3DS release, though the game could follow in its predecessor's footsteps and come to the Wii U, PC, or iOS as well.
