Speaking on the Fragments of Silicon podcast, the series' creator Lorne Lanning said that publisher Oddworld Inhabitants is facing challenges, but is committed to bringing the game to new platforms, especially the Wii U.
"If you're going to make a game for the Wii U it better run on the 8 GB unit, otherwise it's not really a Wii U game. I'm desperate to get on Nintendo, I believe it will resonate with that audience."
The Wii U comes with either 8 or 32 GB of storage, and Lanning said that the limited space is posing a problem.
The Oddworld Inhabitants Twitter account later clarified the situation: "New 'n' Tasty is not cancelled on Wii U," it said. "We are currently having challenges with the platform that we are striving to overcome. Regarding Wii U, while supporting the 8GB model is a consideration, it is neither a deal-breaker nor the only challenge."
New 'n' Tasty is currently only available as a downloadable title on PlayStation 4, but PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions will follow with Cross-Buy support. PC and Xbox One versions are in the works as well.
GameSpot's review of New 'n' Tasty on PS4 gave the game an 8/10 for its gorgeous graphics and deep and engaging puzzle platforming.
