Bethesda Tells Nintendo “No games for U”
No plans from publisher Bethesda to bring any new or existing IP’s to the Wii U community. During QuakeCon Bethesda’s VP of Marketing Pete Hines commented on whether or not any of the recently announced games will be making a appearance on Nintendo’s latest console. At least when it comes to The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Evil Within Pete Hines had to say,
"None of the game’s we’ve announced are being developed for the Wii U, so it’s guaranteed that none of those game coming to Wii U. Will any future ones come out? I can’t say for sure, in our near-term focus it’s not on our radar."
Reasons for the lack of Wii U support have been everything from hardware limitations to the console not selling well and having a small install base. Whatever the reason, the Wii U has been lacking 3rd party support since it’s launch and continues to be one of the biggest drawbacks for the console. I think the Wii U is a great console and I would love to see more support from 3rd party publishers.
Benjamin Franklin once said that “nothing is certain in life but death and taxes”. Pretty bleak huh?! Thankfully living life in the charming world of Animal Crossing isn’t quite so bleak, and New Leaf is the most fun and charming of the series to date. Even with the mortgage repayments…
If you’re unfamiliar with the Animal Crossing series…where have you been? Hiding under a rock like a pill-bug? (AC reference). The franchise is undoubtedly the most popular life simulation game around and is beloved by little girls and grown *ahem* men alike. To sum up the experience, you live out your life in a village full of adorable animals, whilst saving money for furniture and house expansions. That’s not enough to get you excited? Well you don’t do anything particularly out of the ordinary per say, but AC’s charms emanate to make the whole experience a deeply involving one.
Has anyone noticed how Nintendo have taken the lead in the future of consoles and shaping it to adapt to everyone’s needs but no one has really given them any attention?
