In an interview with Eurogamer, the makers of the forthcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance have confirmed that they will not be bringing the eagerly awaited title to Wii U. This will not come as too much of a surprise to the majority of you, given that, outside of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Solid Snake and Nintendo have not joined forces for some time.
When asked about the possibility of a Wii U port, producer Yuji Korekado was quoted as saying the following:
“We aren’t currently thinking about that.”
“One of the strongest appeals of the Wii U is the GamePad. However, we’ve constructed Metal Gear Rising so you can fully enjoy the game on the controllers whether it’s on the PS3 or the Xbox. So, currently we aren’t thinking about Metal Gear Rising on the Wii U.”
So, I guess all us Nintendo worshippers can do now is sit back and hope that the game is an unmitigated disaster. After all, any game which seems to feature Raiden so prominently is bound to fail, right?
