Irrational no Wii games

Published on July 12th, 2011

’ Ken Levine has said his team has no plans to develop games for Nintendo’s but isn’t ruling out the possibility of doing so.

Levine appeared in a promotional E3 trailer for the system in which third-party developers gushed about what they appreciated about Nintendo’s next step in home consoles.

Speaking with IGN, Levine cleared up rumours that Irrational was working on Wii U project which have included suggestions of a Wii U version of the ‘best of show’ .

“Just to be clear, there are no plans,” said Levine. “I’m not saying it can’t happen, but we have no plans to do any games for that platform. There are things about it that, as a core gamer, really appeal to me, that have nothing to do with Fruit Ninja. I have nothing against Fruit Ninja, I respect all kinds of games, I love all kinds of games, there are just certain kinds of things that are more suited to my taste. There are some things, as a core gamer, as a guy who likes lying in bed playing… I’ve always had to sacrifice that core gaming experience when I lie in bed playing games. We’re now getting to a place with Vita and what Nintendo’s doing where that’s not necessarily going to be the case, where you can play full-on hardcore games in bed with the lights out while your wife’s asleep. I like that a lot. That means a lot to me.”

However, Levine did seem particularly pleased to see the Wii U controller would feature two analogue sticks.

“The fact that the Wii U has got two sticks… I feel it’s like… It’s a great year for the core coming back and saying, okay, have your touch screens, have your motion control, we’ll try to make that work, and if you can pull that off it’ll be really good. But I want to have my cake and eat it too. I think these experiences are starting to allow that to happen.”

Irrational Games is currently working on the highly-anticipated BioShock Infinite and has announced it is to develop a new BioShock title for Sony’s PlayStation Vita.
