Taking to twitter, Ojiro "Moppin" Fumoto has announced that he has now joined Nintendo. Moppin, gaining most of his notoriety for the hit mobile title Downwell, received many messages of support upon his announcement, wishing him luck, praising him on his work and questioning where it leaves any possibility of a sequel to the free-falling masterpiece.

With graphics not out of place on the ZX Spectrum, the ridiculously addictive Downwell showed to gamers that mobile titles do not automatically equate to low quality release, with the title then being ported to PC, PS4 and PSVita.
(We are still hoping for the Switch release!)

It's fantastic to see hard work pay off and talent stand out to a point where a company such as Nintendo stands up and takes notice. Lets hope for some Moppin styled Switch exclusives in the future.
