Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, which is set to launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 early next year, is the result of a collaboration between the Metal Gear series’ producer, Hideo Kojima, and Platinum Games. However, despite Platinum’s upcoming Nintendo-published Wii U exclusives – Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101 – Korekado from Konami, the game’s publisher, has revealed that a Wii U port of Revengeance is currently not on the cards:
“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.”
Considering that the Wii U GamePad – not to mention the Wii U Pro Controller – boasts all of the features present in an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 controller, with the exception of analogue triggers, do you buy Konami’s reasoning behind a lack of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on Wii U?
