No Wii U dev kit for Suda 51 yet…
Suda 51, our favourite off-the-wall developer and creator of No More Heroes, apparently hasn’t been given a Wii U development kit yet. Speaking to Nintendo Life at PAX East this past weekend, Suda also revealed that he may not even work on Wii U. When asked if it was something he was looking to get hold of, he replied:
“It’s hard to say. Maybe, maybe not. It’s really depending on publishers. We are developers, so it’s up to a publisher.”
Come on, Nintendo! Get those dev kits out!
