    1. Wow running on Wii U with next gen effects (Tessellation and Advance Lighting effects). And is a pre alpha . O.O. How the Wii U haters are going to handle this? I cant wait.

      1. The Wiiu haters aren’t going to handle this….. Their PC’s aren’t powerfull enough! lol

  1. Q4 of 2014 is to long and by then it’s probably going to be overshadowed by ssb4

    1. It’s going to be overshadowed by any Nintendo game that comes out; the majority of Nintendo console owners don’t care about third party games, lol.

      1. If a 3rd party game is coming out for the Wii U that i like then ill get it, if it doesn’t then ill just get it with another console. This one though ill get if it releases.

      2. Oh we do… But we don’t care about crap Third party games.

      3. If the game is good and the developer took some effort, I’ll gladly buy a game from whoever! BUT if they try to screw me with shit games or ports, they can fuck off!

      4. Are you crazy?! I should have buyed Mass Effect 3 for Wii U, when days later EA announced Mass Effect Trilogie for other platforms for a LESSER price? Are you on drugs or something?

      5. Thats called retardation. What consumer buys a product they dont like how it turns out? Yep a retard.

      6. Monster hunter 3 Ultimate says hello. The Last story by Mistwalker says hello.

      7. Monster hunter tri first appeared of the Wii, moving on! In response to your comment, why do you cuss when you response falls short.

    1. Today my friend. Is not a good day for the Wii U haters. Trust me. I cant wait for this E3 new games. All the bull… about the Wii U is last gen are going to end.

      1. ::|__

    2. It supports even CryEngine 3, Crysis 3 was up and running on wii U but never saw the light of day because of EA’s relationship with Nintendo…

    3. Did it say Cryengine in the trailer? I must have missed it lol. But we all knew Wii U could run it. Crysis 3 was running perfectly fine on Wii U.

      1. I know that we all knew it could run. But the haters just denied it.

      2. No In the 9 minute game play video on IGN home dude said that was the engine used.

      3. Sorry T… but if you look closely at the very end, it says “Achieved with CryEngine 3”. Therefore, Shadow of the Eternals for both PC and Wii U WILL be powered by CryEngine 3.

  2. Bu-but… that impossible! The Wii U isn’t supposed to-to… to… *error* *error*
    *Head explodes*

  3. I have a feeling this will be the next Rayman Legends. I’ll be playing this on my PS$ after the 6 month delay! Lol!

    1. You will be playing a disgusting scaled back version on Your PS$ (3) . I don’t think it’s aimed at old crust bucket consoles. Wiiu , PC and maybe PS4 and 720 one day…

      1. I meant PS4. I hit shift so it made $ instead of 4.

        By the way, the “old crust bucket consoles” have more and better games than Wii U at the moment and will continue to until around mid-2014.

      2. No they won’t. After GTA 5 and MGS5 , they’re dead.
        GTA 5 might come to Wiiu (it might not) .

        X , Windwaker remake , PIkmin 3 , Bayonetta 2 , Wonderfull 101 , 3D mario , Mario Kart , Yarn Yoshi , and much more.

      3. Destiny, Dark Souls 2, Diablo 3, and a few other games.

        Many publishers have already said they will continue to support currrent gen for a while after PS4/Xbox720 come out.

      4. Says the guy who is gloating about getting a horrible version of Diablo 3 on PS3 a year late. Woopty doo. You would have to be an idiot to buy diablo 3 on ps3.

        Dark souls 2 … yeah I’ll give you that. Destiny ? It’s gunna be much better on PS4 and 720 than it is on Ps3 and 360.

      5. Crysis 3, Dead space 3, dead island reptide. Great third party games indeed! lol.

    2. Well, if it helps you sleep better tonight, they said they want to expand platforms in the future. The priority right now is Wii U and PC.

      1. I’ll sleep just fine tonight. Anyway, let’s be honest this coming to PS4/Xbox720 and possibly even PS3/Xbox360

      2. Well they might, but i duno, i just don’t see it happening. I also imagine that due to the fan responce, Nintendo might publish it if they don’t reach their target funding.

    3. You come to a nintendo news site to tell us that you shall buy a nintendo originated game, to play it on a cousin of a nintendo system, the PS4 which owes it’s existence to nintendo. Sony fans you are welcome, it’s nice to know nintendo created the world’s second greatest video game system company, sony’s Playstation line :).

    4. Doubtful, seeing as it’s Dyack’s project.
      I don’t think he’s too keen on working with Sony and especially not Microsoft.

  4. At first that looked like Castlevania…that room with the chandelier hanging from the roof lol. Does.t really look scary…thought the 1st one was? But I will keep an eye on this game.

  5. “Paul Caporicci, CEO of Precursor Games”

    That’s alli needed to hear, my woes of Denis Dyack fucking up peoduction are gone, now he can do what he does best, and only that.

    1. I dont have any way of online payment if they do the bucket like the salvation army i would donate.

  6. Damn it’ll be a long wait but here’s hoping they make a great, freaky product.

  7. 1.5 MILLION?!?!?!

    That’s a lot of money to ask for. I’m giving fifty bucks for now, and I’ll give another fifty after I refill my debit card.

    I expect good things from this.

  8. I really hope Nintendo sees this and steps in. it saves this from failing, they get exclusivity, and people stop asking for an eternal darkness sequel. plus, if its only on Wii u and not pc too, it’ll drive sales. its in Nintendo’s best interest to step in. plus, stepping in gets it a retail release (if it doesn’t get that already) which is the way I prefer buying the game. maybe we can get them to see this if we post on miiverse but I hate to pester the big N.
