has a history of releasing handheld games ranging from okay
to good: Magical Vacation
and its sequel Magical Starsign, Sword
and Heroes of Mana
; and, of course, their best work, done in collaboration with HAL Laboratory, Mother 3.
But until now, they've only

they're thinking about trying their hand at a console game. Brownie Brown president Shinichi Kameoka told Siliconera that "We're optimistic about it and looking into it."
But the choice
of console platform is rather unsurprising. Brownie Brown is a Nintendo-owned studio, so they basically have two platforms from which to choose for any
game they're going to make. Should they move into Wii development, it will be interesting to see if they start with a work-for-hire project or an original work like the Magical Vacation
