Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance not planned for Wii U

Kojima Productions producer says PC port of action game is possible, but Wii U version less likely.


Kojima Productions has no plans to bring Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance to the Wii U, producer Yuji Korekado told Eurogamer. The company will consider porting the action game to the PC following the console launch, he said, but not to Nintendo's new console.

"We aren't currently thinking about that," Korekado said. "One of the strongest appeals of the Wii U is the GamePad. However, we've constructed Metal Gear Rising so you can fully enjoy the game on the controllers whether it's on the PS3 or the Xbox. So, currently we aren't thinking about Metal Gear Rising on the Wii U."

The Metal Gear franchise is not the only established series that has elected to skip the Wii U. BioShock Infinite, Borderlands 2, Dead Space 3, Resident Evil 6, Lego: Lord of the Rings, and Metro: Last Light will not appear on the console. Additionally, it is not clear if Crysis 3 or Battlefield 3 will ship for the system.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is due out for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 19. For more on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
