Despite arriving on last-gen consoles as well as the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, murder mystery paranormal game Murdered: Soul Suspect is skipping the Wii U. When asked why the console wouldn’t be graced with the story of a ghostly apparition helping to solve murder cases, the chief creative officer Matt Brunner was pretty frank. He says if the experience isn’t tailor-made for the Wii U, it often sucks. What’s left unsaid is that the team doesn’t want to spend time tailor-making a version of the game for the Wii U.
“In all honesty, all the Wii U games I’ve ever played, the only good ones are the ones that are made specifically for [the Wii U]. This just doesn’t fit.”
Brunner may be on to something as the former Wii U exclusive Rayman Legends has received high marks across the board in terms of gameplay, despite eventually being ported to other consoles that were deemed inferior versions to the Wii U experience.
