Earlier this month Headstrong Games put the word out on Twitter that they were looking for a talented programmer for a ‘next-gen’ title, and now there’s evidence to suggest that their under-wraps game is headed to Wii U.
The British developer of Batallion Wars 2, House of the Dead: OVERKILL and the Art Academy series has not made any announcements of a Wii U project but French site Nintendo Master has pointed to the LinkedIn profile of Associate Producer Jo Tunstill, which listed amongst her projects ‘unnanounced project on WiiU’.
The entry has seemingly since been removed from Tunstill’s profile, and with nothing officially announced this should be taken as mere rumour for now.
Still it’s tantalising to think of what Headstrong could be bringing to Wii U. A console version of Art Academy would make a lot of sense – remember that awesome concept footage from the very first Wii U announcement trailers that featured a player sketching a picture of Link on the gamepad – but a brand new Batallion Wars would be just as welcome.
Given the increasingly close working relationship of the developer to Nintendo, it could also conceivably be an entirely new Nintendo-published IP.
What would you like to see Headstrong Games bring to Wii U? A new Batallion Wars? A revival of another old franchise like House of the Dead?Speculate away in the comments below.
