Developer Explains Why Little King’s Story Sequel Is Not Wii Bound

The must-have Wii exclusive Little King’s Story is getting a sequel – not for Nintendo’s console –  called New Little King’s Story. During an interview, assistant producer Takanori Muryama revealed why New Little King’s Story is being developed for the PlayStation Vita, instead of the Wii.

Muryama claims that the touch panel, high resolution graphics and online capabilities of the PlayStation Vita are the reasons as to why New Little King’s Story won’t be coming to Wii. Based on Muryama’s reasons, the Wii U seems to be a perfect fit, perhaps the game will be launched on Nintendo’s forthcoming console.

What factors led to the decision to create the sequel for the Vita instead of the Wii?

“There are three reasons for this. One, the using of the touch panel made the game’s controls much easier. The touch panel enables the users to scout dozens of citizens together which improved the operations. Two, the high resolution graphics enabled to depict many characters at once inside the screen. The movement and the depiction of the many characters in its world is what makes this game fun. Last but not least, the network affinity is high, therefore it is easy to buy avatars and other items on the PS Store. In the PS Store, users can purchase additional items which is another appealing point.”
