The official Nintendo magazine has revealed that Nintendo personally asked the developers behind Stranger’s Wrath HD if they could bring the game to their latest home console, Wii U. Stranger’s Wrath HD was announced for Wii U back in June, but it’s interesting to hear that Nintendo were personally interested in the game appearing on their platform.
Not only did we hear that forgotten platform classic Abe’s Oddysee would be getting a remake, New ‘N’ Tasty, on Wii U eShop, we also then found out Nintendo had asked the developer for the HD remake of shooter sequel, Stranger’s Wrath, they were working on, too. We’re already belching loudly in anticipation.
Thanks, Mike S
Now they should ask for GTA 5.
If tomorrows gameplay vid has the Wii U logo, Nintendo fans will go crazy
I would love to see that happen. But I’m betting is not coming and this is one bet I will happily lose.
More then likely GTA5 will come to Wii U like 6 months after launch…then again it still hasn’t been revealed for PC yet…so if it gets revealed for PC then Wii U should follow. Also remember that article from awhile back. GTA5 was running on Wii U earlier in its development. Regardless I don’t give a shit about GTA.
Dang it…signed me out for some stupid reason.
GTA V is not coming to Wii U. No chance in hell.
Who cares we can buy a PS4 for True crime 5!
It would be nice if the God Father V does come to the Wii u. That way I can save $460.
I WILL SPASM SO HARD IF GTAV IS COMING TO Wii U!!!! NARRGARBLEGARBLE!!!
You mean “NYARGLEBARGLE!” and Why not?
My thoughts exactly. I’m still praying like hard for GTA5 to happen on Wii U and if it does, screw every other game coming out later this year because GTA5 (revisiting San Andreas; my favorite GTA game) is all I need to be entertained until Mario Kart 8/Smash Bros. 4 releases. :)
You’re first! De geso!
This is nice though. Good job Ninty.
Thats a great move Nintendo. Now ask for DESTINY!!!!!
Is easier to get games from small company’s that from big ones. Nintendo asking for such games means theater have to pay the big mula.
Ok… I understand.
Activision will put Destiny on Wii U. Bungie Employees are mostly Nintendo fans. Remember in the 1st Destiny Vidoc? The Guy texted his friend saying My body is ready…
It doesn’t matter if their fans… it’s all business
I AGREE! DESTINY LOOKS INCREDIBLE!!!
Why keep asking for extra games like destiny? one at a time, this game is a good move.
I approve this message and fully back it! Destiny should come to Wii U! That game, for a shooter, looks incredible!
I think this demonstrate that Nintendo is doing a lot of things to change the path of WiiU, Something that they didn’t in the past. So i’m proud to keep following Nintendo.
they can ask but they wont get, poor little nintendo.
Um, the game has already been announced for Wii U. This just reveals that Nintendo asked for it.
NO! IT IS SO COMING TO Wii U!
It’s already announced you fucking idiot…
new smash player go here http://sot.ag/BSy4/
holy shit!!!! spam backwards spells maps!!!!!
How about trash in pig latin?
DON’T CLICK ON THE LINK!!!
why dont they ask for good games!!!!!!
Good question. Hard to believe that unreal is finally getting a chance at all thanks to Guilty Gear…and “it’s me”, your stupid. *points at troll*
THIS GAME IS GOOD!
Obviously you have never played this game… it’s incredible and I’m really looking forward to playing it in HD on the Wii U! Lorne Lanning is a wonderful game designer!
Why couldn’t do this with Shadows of the Eternals?
no shit. yeah something tells me nintendo doesnt want the core back…… pious killed himself, something like that arikrog or whatever its called gets over 1 million but one of the best 3rd party games nintendo had in the last 14 years doesnt get even close and they wont fund it. i dont know how people dont see that how huge this game will be to wii u. ( yeah the wii u sucks, well it has shadows of the eternals) armikrog or whatever thats called isnt going to do jack shit for the wii u.
How do you know Shadow of the Eternals isn’t coming to Wii U? They closed the KS for “restructuring” so they can relaunch the campaign, which probably means that a big publisher came to them with some type of offer. We should probably wait and see what happens when they relaunch the site for Shadow of the Eternals. Good chance that the talks with Nintendo they were having before the site was taken down, went well enough to maybe have either Nintendo fund it or some other company buy it out. It also means that MS or Sony could have purchased the rights to SotE as well… so let’s just wait and find out.
Why ask for games that the developers said is coming to your console?
HAVE YOU SEEN THE HATE SURROUNDING SHADOW OF ETERNALS? IT WAS LIKE A NUCLEAR BOMB OF AWFUL STUFF BLEW UP IN PRECURSER GAME’S FACE! WHY WOULD NINTENDO WANT TO GET MIXED UP IN THAT? IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE SOTE GET ONTO Wii U, BUT IT WAS THE RIGHT MOVE TO STAY AWAY FROM PRECURSER.
What was awful about the game other than the amount of money needed to fund it?
NO THE GAME ISN’T AWFUL. THE NEGATIVE PRESS SURROUNDING IT IS. 3 EMPLOYEES HAVE BEEN ARRESTED FOR DEALING AND VIEWING KIDDIE PORN. THEIR KICKSTARTER BOMBED BIG TIME AND DENIS DYACK WAS ACCUSED OF A WHOLE BUNCH OF AWFUL THINGS….NOT THE TYPE OF STUFF NINTENDO WANTS TO GET MIXED UP IN.
Nothing was bad about the game itself. A lot of people just seem to hate one of the people working on the game though, Denis Dyack or something like that.
The fact that it’s being directed by Denis Dyack, a man known for being a terrible leader.
Nintendo is the only reason why Eternal Darkness turned out good, contrary to any of Silicon Knights’ other games.
I will be buying this game for sure. Good call on this one, Nintendo!
Pingback: Nintendo asked for Stranger's Wrath HD on Wii U.
This has thrown up some interesting questions; What other games have they asked for? Have they been refused any games? Curious…
So many factors need to be taken into account has how far in development and what tipe of help Nintendo is giving.
Now that is a good question…no matter how hopeless it seems for nintendo, they always have a trick or trumph card up their sleeve. I have a feeling we might see more of this action…its definitely a new turn on their side reguardless of what others think or say. To me, this was a smart move on nintendo’s side.
I swear this blog gets weirder people every time…….
better not be a fucking fps.
IT IS A FIRST-PERSON/THIRD-PERSON ACTION-ADVENTURE.
I can deal with that.
A friend told me a few things about this game way back when. From what I’ve heard, I will be getting this.
Usually only the most amazing games get HD remakes anyways.
Looks interesting. I would love to have it on Wii U.
Never played the Oddworld series before; what’s it like?
Well, I heard of it and wanted to play it, but no money so yeah…but from what I understand, think of old western with aliens…or the lone ranger with aliens.
Or “Cowboys and Aliens”? :P
THERE IS A TON OF GAMEPLAY ON YOUTUBE.
Abe’s games are sidescroller puzzle stuffs. Very fun also. This game however is unique being a 3D action-adventure. The series is classic.
Nintendo have to bring me tons of games before Smash Bros. Bc when smash is out .. my 1vs1 match will be streamed live online for 2 years or more. I will have no more time for any other games.
SAME HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NARRGARBLEGARBLE!!!
Oh god, I want this so badly.
I never really played much of Stranger’s Wrath, but I enjoyed what I did play.
Ninty should know better. No one wants to give them games on a console that’s performing worse than the vita.
This game has already been announced for the Wii U. It’s fine if you don’t like the Wii U, but read the article, man….
YEAH YO LETS GO!!
This game looks like crap
Im fellin in trap
Listen this rap
And take a vacation on an ice cap
I dont need to fake
Cause i got something to shake
Im asking why Nintendo asked for this game?
Was it only to gain more fame?
It looks just lame
I got no name
8 mile movie you are not b rabbit
Actually, it shows how despereate they are for 3rd party support.
I mean, having to ask personally for a game to appear on their console… That’s kinda sad, in my opinion. Just proves that 3rd party developers aren’t really interested in the WiiU, considering that the developers (in this case: Oddworld) were fully able to put their on the WiiU but just didn’t have any interest in doing it before being asked by Nintendo personally. Sad, sad.
Well, everyone has their options on how they see it. As I said before “nintendo always has tricks or trumph cards up their sleeves”. So I wouldn’t mark them down as sad, desperate, out etc…including haters.
But MS and SONY do the exact same thing…
Maybe Nintendo is desperate, and maybe WiiU is a sinking ship, but you can be sure of one thing, Nintendo works fucking strong under pressure. If anyone can resurrect a dying console, it’s Nintendo, because they actually give a shit about games AND gamers.
Yeah I’m super curious as to how Nintendo will turn this around. I mean they have to realize how much they have disappointed their consumers. I have a feeling things will turn around in 2014 and in 2015/2016 we will see some seriously good games coming out for the Wii U. I have a feeling that the next Zelda and Metroid are going to be really good and will push the envelope. Now if only Nintendo can deliver in terms of third party games and new IPs…………heck even some good exclusives besides first party software.
How about ask SEGA for a Puyo Pop game for the Wii U with everything from the Japan only games (online included) as well as eShop exclusive sequels to Chu Chu Rocket and Rhythm Thief?
Nintendo asked for this game. Developers said yes. Nintendo gets the game.
If you don’t ask, you’ll never know. Case in point.
Also, Wii U has no games? Really?
If Nintendo asks developers for their games, even somewhat funds them for Wii U development if required, and developers say yes, that works as a win-win for Nintendo. Call me crazy, but isn’t this how it business should be done?
Very well said. People think that Nintendo’s act of asking for certain games is a sign of weakness, but like you said, it’s business.
There you go, exactly as I said in a different way.
Oddworld skipped Xbox One because of Microsoft’s craptacular indie game policies
Well I for one am excited about this game. I do hope that Nintendo is able to recruit some more third party support before the year ends. I would really love to see MGSV on Wii U as well as Destiny.
Well goddamn, this series was dead in the water back in the ’90s.
Was Oddworld not an xboxone the original’s exclusive? Microsoft not seeing what they are losing out on with their unique game skipping their new xbox-uh! done. After release of their console at the same time as the PS4 shall they realise that now the one year headstart with the xbox360 was a fluke.
It sounds like Nintdndo is working hard to save the Wii U! Thank you Nintendo. You can beat the competition if you try, you have to try. Now give us new Star Tropics, Earthbound, and Metroid.
Don’t worry, if the HD lacking Wii can beat 2 “HD” consoles then a HD Nintendo console can beat 2 HD consoles…
Now ask for more One Piece games. Got one on the 3DS. Now its the Wii U’s turn.
