Dave Cox, Head of Product Planning and Development at Konami Digital Entertainment and Producer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 has explained why the game isn’t destined for Wii U. Cox says that the development team simply do not have the manpower to create a Wii U version alongside the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions of the game.

“Yes, of course … But it’s a resource problem if we would employ 300 people, then we would probably like a Wii U, Vita or PS4 version (laughs) We have to manage our resources very carefully.. a team can in fact be too large “

  1. Did he say that before after the other LoS2 rep said it was because no-one owned a WiiU? And it took 2 people to port Darksiders 2 onto the WiiU. No excuse.

  2. This makes sense. Why compromise current gen versions for development on Wii U? Everyone loses. Hopefully they’ll consider other titles on Wii U though.

  3. He is a liar, THQ has no money and Vigil easily ported Darksiders 2 to Wii U. They don’t want to make money selling Castlevania LOS 2 on Wii U, that is there problem, they are stupid. Konami ignored Nintendo with Metal Gear Solid Series and a lot of Castlevania games, it is intentional, purposeful, and malicious.

    • I seriously doubt Konami is intentionally ignoring Wii U. We don’t even have a good idea about what they are doing yet. For all we know, they could be planning a different CASTLEVANIA for WiiU, and maybe MGS WILL hit Wii U someday. At least I prefer to think so instead of being downright negative.

  4. If we don’t see LORDS OF SHADOWS 2 on WiiU, then at least hope we get an original CASTLEVANIA title. That will be better than nothing. Something tells me that Konami will though; Mercury Steam won’t have the title on its shoulders after it’s completed. Still, I didn’t realize that the understaffing was the real reason.

    Wish there was some way to shut out those trolls, though.

  5. Dislikes without arguments are really good….no, really, thats the way it is. That means, someone is a “jealous guy” and cant accept that Wii U will probably be sucessful. Before you dislike, im not a fanboy, i own both PS3 and Wii console and PC (gaming from the NES days).

    So, keep trolling, the more you troll (much dislikes, less arguments) the more it means simply: Wii U will be good (not saying the best console, again, im not a fanboy).

    Bye!
