We’ve heard plenty of good things about the Wii U from developer Gearbox, and the praise continues. In a recent interview with Gamespot, Gearbox’ Randy Pitchford talked about their upcoming game Aliens: Colonial Marines, and he said that the Wii U version of the game will be the best looking one. He said:
“The Wii U is a next-gen system, so it’s natural that it’s a very powerful system. It’s up to Nintendo to talk about their system and they have not revealed all of the details yet. So far we have been thrilled with it [the Wii U] and it’s clear to us that the best looking console version of the game is going to be on the Wii U.”
Aliens: Colonial Marines was one of the first Wii U games to be showcased last year. Details about Wii U specific features and controller additions remain unknown, but Gearbox is expected to unveil everything at E3. The developer has previously praised the Wii U, saying it has a lot to offer that no other platform can do. Lats month, Gearbox confirmed that the Wii U was more powerful than the current gen systems, according to the dev kit they were working on. It’s rumored that the dev kit hardware has since gotten even better, and is able to run the Unreal Engine 4.
