Update: Yesterday, the Armikrog Kickstarter revealed that Nintendo was interested in bringing the game to Wii U. Today, developer Pencil Test Studios announced that the game will come to Wii U, as long as the Kickstarter is able to reach its stretch goal of $950,000.

Along with the newly added stretch goal, a few concept drawings were added that show how the game might take advantage of the Wii U GamePad. You can check them out in the gallery below.

The game is still short of its initial $900,000 goal with four days to go. If you're interested in backiing the project, head here. Backers who pledge enough to receive a digital copy of the game will also receive a code to download the Wii U version of the game – as long as the game is able to meet its goals.

Original Story:

Armikrog, the Kickstarter hopeful clay-animated point-and-click adventure game from the creators of Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood, might come to Wii U.

Nothing is set in stone yet, but according to the game's Kickstarter page, Nintendo reached out to Pencil Test Studios shortly after E3 about bringing the game to Wii U.

"After E3 we were contacted by Nintendo and we're talking to them about the possibility of releasing Armikrog on the Wii U. There's nothing concrete to report yet, but we're encouraged by their interest and we'd like to see it happen."

The game seems like it could be a good fit for the system, especially if you can use the GamePad to tap around the environment to solve puzzles. Hopefully we will learn more soon.

In the meantime, Armikrog is still short of its Kickstarter goal with only four days to go. To learn more about the game, you can head to its Kickstarter page, or check out our original post about the game.
