The immensely popular free to play online game Runescape should be coming to Nintendo consoles in the not too distant future. Jagex, the development team behind the game has stated that they’re planning to bring the game to Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo platforms. Fingers crossed that the game will be cross console compatible.

    • it may not seem like much, but i’ve been with it for a lot of updates, and the graphics and gameplay have dramatically increased scince then, the faces used to be two dots on a flat orb, although i will always miss the old tutorial island… it is worth the nintendo consoles

      • they may be stunning, but he means he hopes they’ll be improved even more, i’d personally like to see a background when you move the camera to the ground instead of fog, but i don’t know how they’d pull that off exactly.

  1. I like Runescape, but it seems quite hard to imagine playing this game on the Wii U or handheld game…. I guess with the Wii U tablet controller but still.. I dunno… let’s just keep it on the computer

  2. could be really fun,it can show off alot of cool things on the wii u,for example inventory would be on the touch screen and online capabiliities would be cool,as long as there is no memeber feature im happy

  3. I think as long as it made a splash on 3DS and had most (or all) of the features of the computer version, then I would be all for it! There is so much to do in the game from what I remember!

  4. I’d buy it simply for the nostalgia, haven’t played in a year or two now!
    Really hope it makes it to nintendo consoles, lots of games I want are always always for Xbox and PS3 only, which I understand but still, sucks!

  5. Its changed so much since I played 4 years ago. I think it could be cool to play it on a console, though not without its share of weird. If it does do good on consoles, I wonder what would stop the makers of Habbo from jumping on the “pc game to console game” flying turkey cannon. Yeah I went there.

  6. wow Runescape coming to consoles??? ive only played a few times… but i think if it were to actually be a console game i would get more into it

    • It’s actually got a HUGE player base. It is essentially a very “dumbed-down” mmo that was created YEARS ago. I used to play it in 2002, then off and on for a few years, but I stopped a few years ago. It wasn’t bad, but it was very basic, and to really get anywhere in the PVP portion of the game, you had to pay for micro-transactions, or be a “subscriber” type account where you pay a small fee and get extra things.

      • There’s no micro-transactions. Only a 5 dollar subscription fee once a month to get access to new land and equipment. It’s not really dumbed down anymore (it really never was).

  7. Sounds weird. Im not really a fan of Runescape but this sounds good for the developers.

    On another story, I used to play Runescape, I quit like 3 years ago and just recently (3 weeks ago) I found out my account got hacked and perma banned. o.o

  8. I’ve tried to get into Runescape a few times, but I’m just not interested in level grinding (especially the amount required for Runescape)

    I’d rather play a game that requires real skill, not a game where my character is better depending on how many trees I’ve chopped down.

  12. Well, if this will have a multiplayer version wich imo will be considerable seeing as the game would be very boring otherwise, this will gave a massive lay down on the bots unless you’ll start using aim bots wich is not even usefull for RS :P

    • That’s a stupid idea. THE GAME ISN’T LEAVING PC, JUST BEING PORTED TO PC. Bots will still bot. Probably even moreso, as many sell their accounts, and this opens a wider fanbase of which to sell their accounts too. Oh, and did I mention that I used to bot, so I know what I’m talking about?

  13. As much as i like rs and i play as a memeber, i don’t think this a good idea its going to be harder and more anoying to play on a console, but this is just another way of them making money tbh its getting out of hand, there milking rs for all they can get, since there new mmo is comming out next year.

  15. Pfffft. Jagex, Ruined the game when free trade came back. It was truly the most fun game in 2005 – 2007 for me. I miss it SO much. Now it’s just bots everywhere and a boring game to play now.

  17. ok so i dont even have any nintendo system because they all suck. but regardless. runescape is an amazing game. and all of you people say shit like it was awful and boring are 100% wrong. and the people syaing that probably haven’t even gotten past level 20. i can honestly say that it takes less then 20 minutes to get to lvl 20. so you have no room to talk about the game because it has hundreds and hundreds of day of gameplay. not hours, DAYS and years of gameplay. and i also think that jagex is ruining the game by publishing to to console. essentially any nintendo system.

  21. i have read some of these comments, and the part what is true about if runescape was to go to a console then the thing is people would just hack there way to 99skills , wii has a system called homebrew, very easy to use, and soon there will be alot of people useing that programme who like runescape! xbox and ps3 have a different type of hacking software witch i dont know, but all i know is that you need a laptop and a special software and wire, so by making runescape into a console game , just means runescape just wants more money from you! and runescape will go dead if it was to go to a console. that is my view on this topic!

    • You do know hacking is illegal right? It’s easy to hack on any system, really you just find hacks online.. Really just copy them to over to something you can plug in your system.. And use them.. Lol. But saying that, Runescape wouldn’t allow it, there has been people that hacked their server before, you would just get auto-ban..

K woah your all jumping down eachothers throats but for what reason everybody has their own opinion there is no reason to get pissed at eachother over a game.plus i think this is a good thing and i am happy i might get the chance to play this on something other then a computer i mean like im on my now doing this that is all i have to say.

  23. I don’t see why people hate the game itself. The game is actually decent. I’d give the game itself a 7.25. The game is ruined because of the goddamn 10 year old players who can’t come up with a better insult than newb, n00b, nOob, nub, or any incarnation of that word. I’m sorry, but Nintendo isn’t ready for an MMORPG. If Runescape does become a download onto Wii or whatever, it may ruin Nintendo’s online play. If RS doesn’t ruin Nintendo, then Dragon Quest 10 will.

  24. Tired of people bashing Runescape saying its boring because it’s “a bunch of tasks” or “just skilling”. The main reason many people play Runescape is for it’s unique PvP system which NO other MMO has; when you kill somebody EVERYTHING they have goes to you, and thats the kind of game PvP I love, no faggot ass honor points or shit, just plain out gear they worked for and now its yours to sell and rub it in their face. And what’s with all this talk about “graphics”. Are you guys high? Good graphics is not what makes a game good, its the gameplay itself. Look at counterstrike or something, the graphics are horrid, yet people still choose to play it over CoD, Battlefield, you name it. Its not the graphics, its the gameplay. I’d be excited as hell to see it come to consoles, not because I’m a console player, but to see more faces in the community, and to PK more noobs >:)

  28. They’re doing a massive overhaul of the combat system and movement system, i believe to reduce the number of clicks on the interface, giving movement WASD controls more than likely, which now makes more sence if this is to be their goal.
