Dan Adelman Wanted Grim Fandango On Wii U

Former Nintendo indie boss Dan Adelman has mentioned that he really wanted to get the classic Grim Fandango to come to the Wii U, however his efforts were unsuccessful. A remake of Grim Fandango is currently in the works for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

“Grim Fandango,” he reminisced. “I mentioned the idea of an HD remake to Tim Schafer about 7-8 years ago. I was so jealous that PlayStation got that. Curse you, Adam Boyes!”

EA Explains Why It Brings Games To Smart Devices Instead Of Nintendo 3DS

The chief operating officer of EA, Peter Moore, has explained why his company prefers developing titles for smart devices instead of Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. The company, which stopped producing titles for the two dedicated gaming handhelds, thinks that opting for smartphones and tablets would provide more favorable results in the long run.

“We were supportive of both of those platforms,” Moore said. “But then you’ve got finite resources and you’ve got teams that say, ‘We really think that two or three years from now, these are the platforms that people are going to be consuming games on.’ And you look at the quality of what you can do on phones and tablets… Sometimes strategy is not about what you do but what you don’t do, and you have to make some hard calls when you’ve got only so many people. To my point, we’ve got to be planning for FY 17 and 18. Do you think the Vita and 3DS are going to be around in some shape or fashion by then on a scale level?”

Here’s The Official LEGO Ninjago: Nindroids Trailer For Nintendo 3DS

Warner Bros has released a trailer for their forthcoming handheld LEGO title, LEGO Ninjago. The highly popular LEGO Ninjago videogame franchise is back with high-kicking action and adventure. LEGO Ninjago: Nindroids comes to the Nintendo 3DS handheld and PlayStation Vita this summer. Based on the first five new episodes of the animated TV series, “LEGO Ninjago Rebooted,” players will battle and defend the New Ninjago City where the Ninjas face a technological threat by the evil Overlord and his robotic army of Nindroids. Using swift combo attacks, unique fighting moves, special weapons and new vehicles, the Ninjas must fight with all their might to save Ninjago.

Brutal, Bloody Game ‘Aztez’ Coming To Wii U

Team Colorblind has announced that its debut game, Aztez, will be released on Wii U this year. Described as a “brutal, bloody, expressive, difficult, and replayable action game,” Aztez has players expand and maintain the Aztec empire through turn-based strategy while managing violent outbreaks via real-time beat ‘em up sequences. The title is also in development for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One.

“We’re happy to announce that Aztez is officially coming to PS4, Vita, Xbox One, and Wii U,” the developer wrote on its website.

“Our first release will still be on Steam (PC/Mac/Linux), with consoles releases as soon as possible afterwards. If we could, we’d love to launch on everything at once, but really there are just the two of us and launching on a console is a ton of work. We’ll have more timeframe details as we get closer to release!”
