A portion of a 4cr interview with Ty Taylor and Mario Castaneda...
4cr: Is there any information on the potential release date for The Bridge on Wii U?
Ty Taylor: It will be out this summer! We don’t have an exact release date yet, but we’re simultaneously launching The Bridge on Wii U (along with PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PS Vita and Xbox One). We’re almost finished with all of these versions, and at that point, we’ll just have to coordinate a good release date with each platform to make it all click.
4cr: Will the game offer Off-TV gameplay and Miiverse Stamps support?
Ty Taylor: Unfortunately we won’t have any MiiVerse Stamps, but there will be Off-TV gameplay. All of the audio and visuals are mapped to the Wii U GamePad (with touch and tilt support as well), so no TV is required. Also, you can play with a Wii Remote, so no GamePad is required if you’re using a TV.
4cr: Are either of you working on other game releases for Nintendo’s Wii U? If so, what can you tell us about them?
Mario Castañeda: Ty and I are both working on Tumblestone which will hit all platforms under the sun, but will feel right at home on the Wii U. I’m also working on Hex Heroes, a real-time-strategy party game made with the Wii U’s features in mind. We’re about a year into development and things are looking great.
