Cardiff based Dakko Dakko has been awarded official games developer status for Nintendo.
The company specialises in creating videogame for game consoles and this latest project follows fast on the heels of two games the company released for Sony PlayStation.
The team say they were keen to create a challenging game exclusively for Nintendo when it launched its new platform – Wii U.
The Welsh Government gave the company £50,000 in grants from its Digital Development Fund to help ensure the project is developed and brings new talent to Wales.
The government says it wants to boost the console game sector in the region.
Dakko Dakko say the support ensures all the development work will take place in their studio in Cardiff Business Technology Centre.
