WayForward Becomes Wii Developer

by Shawn White (2007-05-15)

WayForward, the development studio best known for its Shantae character on Game Boy Color, officially announced its status as a licensed Wii developer.

"Our status as a licensed developer for Wii actually took place in July of '06," said John Beck, CEO of WayForward. "We have had hardware in-house for about eight months now, and we have been maintaining a parallel R&D effort on the platform. This is partly to test concepts from our creative team, and partly in preparation for numerous contract development opportunities."

Founded in 1990 and located in Valencia, California, WayForward develops extensively for handheld platforms, namely Game Boy and Nintendo DS. Although many publishers employ WayForward for licensed properties, the studio worked on a number of original titles such as the aforementioned Shantae and Sigma Star Saga.
