Wii U gets Game Snubbed by two more Titles

Saints Row IV

With a lack luster launch of the Wii U and a need to have not only new exclusive titles but also cross-platform games too, we’re seeing a lack of both.

Today we’ve heard that Nintendo have lost their chances with two potentially big titles coming to everywhere other than their new console.

Deep Silver who were big spenders at the recent selling of THQ’s former exclusives, have have confirmed to Polygon that their upcoming titles Saints Row IV and Dead Island: Riptide will not be making their presence felt on the Wii U.

 

In an interview with Digital Spy, Creative Producer Alexander Toplansky said;

“One of the opportunities we had for Riptide was to continue the development of the engine, and really improve it and make a lot of refinements,”

“The things that are required to bring something to a new platform, you need to either really get to be integrating it deep into the engine, or you’ve got to [do] a port.

“Neither one of those was a satisfactory outcome for us, so we decided to do what we got platform-wise and just make sure that we can deliver the best experience we can.”

 

Another blow dealt to Nintendo as Saints Row IV could gain huge sales and I’m sure the Wii  U could have befitted from some of that popularity.
