Some of you may have seen our cold pitch to Nintendo on Twitter a while back. Well, we’ve been in talks with them for a bit now, and we’ve been waiting patiently for an answer… As of a few days ago we can now publicly announce that we are one of 60ish Ninides releasing on the Nintendo Switch in 2017! We are really excited that Nintendo is bringing Ira onboard! This is great news and we never thought Ira would evolve to the point where companies like Nintendo would believe in what we are creating. We plan on releasing Ira simultaneously on all PC distribution platforms, and the Switch.
Next up we have a new location to share with you! Here’s a short clip showcasing the creation of Kettle Bottom.
Kettle Bottom is located in the dank basement under the Kettle Brothers distillery (within the town of Pilgrimage). This area is known to house pockets of union supporters, and the lower sects of society like to drink away their sorrows here. Smoky and dirty, it would surely attract an eclectic bunch of wayward miners.
Kettle Bottom is still a work in progress, but I thought you guys would like to see a new location, and a snip bit of the process that goes into making it! At the end of the clip you get to see James (Ira’s father) whom you guys have not been officially introduced to. Here’s a tease into James’s back story.
James in front of his pit miner, which can be heard thumping in the background of our pit miner teaser….What’s it all mean? Oh, you’ll find out soon enough!
Anyway, we are excited to have more content focused updates from now on, and we are looking forward to the future!
Till next time,
The Ira Team
