Batman: Arkham City On Wii U ‘Will Play To Console’s Strengths’
Batman: Arkham City is still in development for Wii U at Rocksteady Studios, but will be adapted “in order to play to the strengths of the console,” the developer’s Dax Ginn has told NowGamer.
“I think we’re definitely in a sweet spot with current platforms in that we’re getting the best out of them. If nothing changed for another ten years, I’m sure we’d be perfectly happy, because we really are getting great results,” Ginn said in an interview. “But I think it will happen, change is inevitable. I mean, the Wii U is very exciting, and we’re currently developing Batman: Arkham City for that.”
With Nintendo’s next console offering enough power to rival the PS3 and Xbox 360, as well as innovative use of multi-screen and touch-screen gaming, Batman: Arkham City could look quite different when it eventually reaches the Wii U.
“The design of the console is really trying to do a lot of different things. I think the things that it’s trying to do, it’s going to be very good at. But it’s not one-to-one comparable to the things we’ve done with this game, said Ginn.
“So without a doubt, we’re going to have to think about what that means, how the game is going to have to adapt in order to play to the strengths of the console.”
Rocksteady is full of Nintendo fans, and the studio is excited by the Wii U Ginn added.
Batman: Arkham City launches on Xbox 360 and PS3 next week, following shortly on PC. The Wii U hasn’t got a release date yet, never mind any games for platform.
