No Dead Space 3 on Wii U

Visceral Games vice president says there are currently no plans to bring upcoming horror-action game to Nintendo's new console.


Dead Space 3 will not scare Wii U gamers. Visceral Games vice president and general manager Steve Papoutsis said via Twitter recently that there are no plans to bring the upcoming horror action game to Nintendo's forthcoming high-definition console.

Responding to a question regarding the possibility of Dead Space 3 coming to the Wii U and making use of the system's tablet-like GamePad, Papoutsis responded bluntly with, "Not currently in the plan."

Dead Space 3 is not the only high-profile game planning to skip the Wii U, which is due for a worldwide release this holiday season. Capcom's new shooter Resident Evil 6 will not appear on Nintendo's upcoming console and neither will 2013's Tomb Raider reboot.

Dead Space 3 was officially announced last week during the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo following heavy speculation. The game sees series hero Isaac Clarke return, but this time he will have help in the form of co-op partner John Carver. Together, players will battle Necromorphs on a new ice planet called Tau Volantis. For more on the project, check out GameSpot's E3 2012 stage show demo with Visceral Games.
