During an interview with Dealspwn, Gearbox co-founder Brian Martel stated that a Wii U version of Borderlands 2 would be fantastic. Martel is excited about the Wii U GamePad because it can be a great device for managing inventory in games, including Borderlands 2. Martel thinks that the game would look really good on the Wii U because it can “deal with the resolutions and textures.” Borderlands 2 will be released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this September.
“We really like the Wii U. I think it’s a really cool platform. I like what they’re doing – obviously with the touchscreen – and it will be interesting to see what Microsoft do with their approach to that idea. It’s one of those problems of the Wii: the only people who have ever made a lot of money on the Wii is Nintendo.”
“If Borderlands 2 was on the Wii U, the thing I would be most excited about is inventory management: it would be amazing on that, it would just be fantastic. And I think the artwork would look really good, with the way they can deal with the resolutions and textures, I think it’s a really good console.”
