Remember Dreamfall Chapters? It started as a Kickstarter that was successfully funded after promising to look into a Wii U version. Now it seems that isn’t going to happen and all mention of any Wii U version of the game has been scrubbed from the Kickstarter. Nintendo personally approached the team about bringing a port of the game to the Wii U, but now it looks like the game will be a PS4 exclusive on consoles, according to the latest tweet from Red Thread Games.

The game is still going to be available on PC, Mac, and Linux in addition to the console release, but for fans on the Wii U who were looking forward to this game, it’s probably not coming anymore if the deal secured with Sony is not a timed exclusive. According to the game’s Wikipedia page, the team always considered the Wii U port that Nintendo asked to see on their system as “secondary” to working on the PC version and now apparently, the PlayStation 4 version. Either way, this is another blow to Nintendo’s catalogue as Dramfall: The Longest Journey was one of the best adventure games released in the early 2000s.
