Nintendo's harsh 40MB restriction on games for the WiiWare service is "horrible", says Team Meat's Tommy Refenes, but the 3DS' eShop is "reasonable".
The restriction for 3DS eShop games is 2GBs, the Super Meat Boy developer revealed, which would easily accommodate even games released at retail, should Nintendo choose to do so."[WiiWare's] 40MB is horrible, but [3DS's] 2GB is reasonable," Refenes told Nintendo Gamer magazine (via Nintendo Everything).
"Super Meat Boy would have been on WiiWare if we could have had just a few more megabytes of space - you can only compress stuff so much before you have to start cutting out huge parts of your game. Unfortunately, at that point, it just isn't worth the time," he added.
Refenes went on to say the developer is looking at Wii U development. "If we can in the future, we'd like our next game to be on Wii U as well as everything else," he said.
The developer announced recently that a new Super Meat Boy game built for touch screen devices is in the works.
