The development team behind Dreamfall Chapters has confirmed to EDGE magazine that the game will be coming to Wii U. Red Thread founder and creative director Ragnar Tørnquist told the publication that Nintendo approached them last autumn, around the time when the game was first announced. Red Thread then decided to get back in contact with Nintendo in May and said that the company was interested in working with them. The development studio now has a Wii U dev kit and are in the process of getting the game up and running on the system complete with Wii U GamePad functionality.
“Nintendo approached us last autumn, immediately after Dreamfall Chapters was announced – they were, in fact, the first console manufacturer to do so. At that point, however, we weren’t ready to make any commitments regarding engine and platforms, so we decided to wait. We got back in touch with Nintendo in late May of this year, and they were very interested in working with us.”
The studio has just received its first Wii U dev kit, and is still in the process of getting the game up and running on Wii U. It is aiming to release Dreamfall Chapters on Nintendo’s home console complete with Gamepad functionality. “So far, they’ve been very helpful and supportive, and it’s been a painless and surprisingly rapid process.”
