Online gaming publication CVG recently had the opportunity to speak to Hiroyuki Kubota who works for Mario & Luigi studio AlphaDream,and Akira Otani who is a producer at Nintendo, about the well-received series. Otani was asked whether there is a possibility of a Mario & Luigi title coming to Wii U. He said as a developer he is genuinely interested in the platform, but he thinks the series ultimately works best on handheld gaming devices.
“As a developer I am interested, but we currently have no plans for a Wii U version. If we want to convey the amusement and fun of the character animations and reactions using AlphaDream’s pixel art, I think handheld consoles are the best for doing this.”
