So Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 won’t be on Wii U. Yet another game isn’t getting a Wii U release, but in this case publisher Konami actually wanted to bring the title to Nintendo’s new system, but simply couldn’t.
Dave Cox, a producer at Konami, spoke with Dutch website n1ntendo.nl, and clarified why Lords of Shadow 2 won’t be gracing Wii U. He said the company just doesn’t have the resources right now. According to Cox, to make a Wii U version would take another 20-30 people on the project. Plus, the new Castlevania is just so far along in development now that to start work on another version would hinder the efforts so far. “That’s the only reason there won’t be a Wii U-version, it’s not that we don’t want to make it, it’s just that it wouldn’t make sense for us to do so right now.”
It’s disappointing, but understandable. Games don’t develop themselves out of thin air. At least he isn’t writing off Wii U as an entire platform like some other publishers have already done. Perhaps there’s hope for a Wii U edition of the game after it’s been released?
