Reggie Wants Grand Theft Auto V On Wii U

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has told MTV that he would love to see the Grand Theft Auto franchise come to Wii U. However, Take-Two chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick said that he was incredibly skeptical about the console, when he spoke to journalists back in June. Here’s what Reggie had to say about Grand Theft Auto V and Wii U.

“The folks there have said very nice public comments about the Wii U.”

“In the end, it is Nintendo’s responsibility to have a large installed base, to have development tools that help the developers and publishers create great content, and essentially create an environment where teams like Rockstar can bring their very best content to our platform, and if we do that hopefully the very best content throughout the entire industry will show up on Wii U.”

    1. i want the next red dead game to be on the wiiu. just imagining being able toswitch weapons with the touchscreen, use the touchscreen for dead eye, and having the full map on the touch screen sounds fantastic. the simple things they do similar t that with assassins creed is brilliant, and i hope more third party developers do something like that with a little bit more.

      1. I would have hoped bloody Nintendo didn’t have to find out at the same time as us. They’re the biggest gaming company in the world, not IGN.

      1. 500 million dollars grose. Not 500million copies ?

        My point is , IF Rockstar put GTA5 on wiiu it will sell 2 million copies at least , even if it sells 10M on ps3 and 360 it’s still worth putting on wiiu…

  1. I hope he and the other big boys at Nintendo personally convince Rockstar to do this. They’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain by bringing GTA to the Wii U. There’s a big audience for it here. Leave luck to heaven.

    1. Exactly! That also goes for all of the developers that shunned Nintendo in the past. Friend request me if ya like on the Wii U! Friend ID: Mister_Mayhem

  2. Having GTA V on Wii U is VERY important… it tells the public “We’re Nintendo, we’re as powerful as the other guys, we can compete and offer you an even better experience of your favorite games than the competition.”

    1. It’s a great game that’s why and it’s impact on Nintendo’s not only on for kiddy reputation but for their third party reputation. It’s a game that has never seen the light of day on a Nintendo home console. The same people who dismiss good titles are the same who end up bending over knee when good titles are confirmed.

      1. Proin sapien nibh, sodales sed posuere eu, sodales a mi. Curabitur euismod laoreet tempor. Donec mollis hendrerit vehicula. Aliquam ornare, turpis nec laoreet ornare, erat tellus sodales sem, nec elementum turpis lorem eget lectus. Etiam quis convallis ante. Praesent fermentum condimentum tristique. Cras augue arcu, rhoncus ac blandit eu, dapibus et metus. Phasellus vitae velit eu tortor rhoncus vehicula sed in quam. Nullam sed massa non nisl mollis dignissim. Morbi pulvinar, velit eu egestas pretium, risus ligula sollicitudin quam, eget porta metus purus quis ipsum. Nulla facilisi.

  3. Well RockStar better make up their damn minds so the Wii U version doesn’t come out a Year later like a lot of other 3rd party games for it. I just wish Nintendo can take advantage of GTA V’s Launch like Sony & Microsoft but they keep getting all the games late, which is bad for profits. ):

  4. I dont play GTA games. Not my type of game. But Rockstar being skeptical of Wii U just means they are being paranoid. Afraid it wont sell on Wii U? They think it will fail like the Wii did? Oh wait it didnt. Stop being babies Rockstar and put it on Wii U and PC for that matter.

  5. Id get it for Wii U if it was made for it. I can see the game pad being at good use as a map BUT the controlls will be annoying…I doont like where the analog sticks are placed.

  6. It is in point of fact a nice and helpful piece oof information. I’m glad that you just
    shared this useful info with us. Please stay us informed like this.
    Thank you for sharing.

  7. Undeniably consider that which you stated. Your
    favourite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to consider of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as other folks consider
    worries that they just do not realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest
    as well as outlined out the entire thing without having side effect , folks can take a signal.
    Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
