Downwell Developer Ojiro Fumoto Looks To Have Joined Nintendo

Nintendo has done well for themselves!


Ojiro Fumoto’s Downwell is a fun platformer that everyone should play at least once – is that why Nintendo and he have joined forces?

According to Ojiro Fumoto’s very own Twitter, he and Nintendo have joined forces for the greater good! Not much has been confirmed, but speculations are running amok as of now on what Fumoto’s future with the company will mean.

Fumoto specifies the 3Ds –  could that mean a potential port of Downwell to the handheld console? Or a new game entirely for us to get our hands on? Will there perhaps even be a chance that further on Fumoto will have the chance to develop something on the Switch?

Regardless of the future, I can at least say that here on Hey Poor Player we’re very excited on what the future holds for Fumoto!

When not sleeping (which is...a lot of the time), Aimee is writing up a storm for her latest ideas. Hailing from the city Birmingham, she's had a love for video games since playing Star Wars Episode 1: Racer on the PC with her trusty joystick! Since then she's developed a firm love for RPGs and JRPGs and considers them her second love, straight after dogs. Her favourite games are: Tales of Berseria, Dragon Age II (don't judge!), Final Fantasy X and Pyre. You can hear her ramble about them @honhonitsaimee on Twitter.
