Gearbox Software admits that seeing their upcoming game Borderlands 2 on the Wii U “would just be fantastic”. The publisher 2k Games has yet to exhibit an interest in the matter though.
Gearbox Software’s Chief Creative Officer Brian Martel shares the developers opinion on the Wii U as a platform; “We really like the Wii U, I think it’s a really cool platform.” says Brian. “I like what they’re doing and it will be interesting to see what Microsoft does with their approach to that idea. It’s one of those problems of the Wii: the only people who have ever made a lot of money on the Wii is Nintendo.”
Martel also touched on Aliens: Colonial Marines, which is also being developed by Gearbox Software, and set for a release on the Wii U. “So we’re really excited to bring Aliens: Colonial Marines to it. And we’re going to do a wait and see approach, our publisher 2k Games is going to see whether they’re going to go with that.”
Martel then addressed his feelings on whether Borderlands 2 is suitable for the Wii U, stating: “If Borderlands 2 was on the Wii U, the thing I would be most excited about is inventory management: it would be amazing on that, it would just be fantastic. And I think the artwork would look really good, with the way they can deal with the resolutions and textures, I think it’s a really good console.”
