Fez ‘Would Be Kind Of Pointless’ On Nintendo 3DS

Fez creator Phil Fish took to Reddit today to answer questions posed by fans. One fan asked if Fez is coming to the Nintendo 3DS, and Fish replied by saying he and his team don’t have any plans to bring the puzzler to Nintendo’s latest handheld. Fish went on to say it would be pointless to bring Fez to the Nintendo 3DS and that it wouldn’t work on the autostereoscopic device.

It doesn't need to be about 3D. I would have figured it was about broadening the audience on a currently best selling platform.

I haven't played it, but Fez looks like a freakin amazing game. I find it a shame that it isn't on the 3DS.

I'm hopeful that the game at least shows up on Vita. I'm not playing favorites since I own a 3DS too. I simply think that this sort of game should be enjoyed on a handheld.

Agreed... I have it on xbox and it has this " perfect for handheld" feel to it. Every time I play it I feel it should be in the vita/3ds

Phil Fish clearly hasn't played Cave Story (the eShop release) or VVVVVV (again, the eShop release). If he did, he would see that these games with strictly 2D sprites actually look pretty nice with the 3D effect.

I don't see why it would be any different with Fez. More so considering that, in top of the 2D sprites, Fez has that amazing changes in rotation, where the game actually becomes 3D if so very briefly. Those instances would look incredibly superb with the 3D effect.

So, he's totally wrong on this one, and should get to work with a 3DS version. Finish the Vita one, and then do one for 3DS, he will have many sales guaranteed because the 3DS has now a pretty great install base and a game like Fez would be VERY popular on the eShop.

Didn't Phil Fish say that Fez "should be out on pretty much everything"? Last time I checked, the 3DS is a part of "everything."

I mean, I don't see why putting Fez on 3DS is a bad business move. If you're going to bother putting it on iOS and Vita, just put it on 3DS. It doesn't need the 3D effect to be worth playing, especially if the game design is so good.

Phil needs to get his ideas in line before he opens his mouth. You'd think he'd learn by now.
