To date, Nintendo gamers have only been graced with the fantastic Dead Space: Extraction, is that about to change?
The next issue of UK magazine PLAY features “DEAD SPACE 3″ clearly on the top left of their cover…
When visiting the magazines site you can see a list of features included in the magazine, but DEAD SPACE 3, is suspiciously absent, could this be down to one of those pesky NDAs?
Some of you may also be quick to point out that this magazine is a Playstation, but don’t let that fool you. At E3 2011 EA’s Frank Gibeua said the following…
With the Wii U it’s important for us to get there on day one so we can get in and build as big an audience as possible. We were really blown away by the unique innovation that Nintendo brings with the Wii U controller on a high performance machine. The ability to do HD graphics and access game experiences in a completely novel way and a way that’s never been seen before, it really struck our fancy.
We were excited by what Nintendo presented to us, we thought about it and it fits well with what we’re trying to do with our franchises like FIFA and Madden and Battlefield. There’s great horsepower there, great innovation and Nintendo’s got fantastic branding. We’re platform agnostic as a company so if we find something we believe will have success commercially and critically, and has a business model that works for us, we’re in.
So if EA thought the Wii was suitable for Dead Space: Extraction, you can bet dam sure that they certainly think the Wii U is a perfect fit, after numerous mature third-party titles are already underway!
The sad part is, that while the PS3 and 360 versions are likely to be announced within the next month, we will have to wait until E3 to hear about a Wii U version.
