Tantalus’ Wii U port will be announced soon, coming out this year, studio’s biggest project yet, porting Wii U game to current generation consoles

Anyone remember Deus Ex Human Revolution or Mass Effect 3 on the Wii U, if you do then you will remember the Wii U games were handled by Australian development studio Tantulas Media who are well known for porting games from other systems. Currently they are working on a port of a ‘AAA next-gen game’ for Nintendo’s Wii U. While we are still unaware of exactly what they are working on we have been informed “for an absolute top notch publisher.”

Tantalus’s Tom Crago said during the Fragments of Silicon Podcast that there current project will be officially revealed “soon”. As well as that he confirmed the game will launch this year, while stating that the game “is the biggest thing they have ever done”.

Crago’s full comments are as follows:

We’re doing that. It hasn’t been announced, but it will be soon. And can I just further add to the mystique and say that it’s big. It’s the biggest thing we’ve ever done. And it’ll come out this year, and I hope it won’t disappoint.

I am actually hoping for something like the Kingdom Hearts or Final Fantasy games on the Wii U by Tantalus hands or Grand Theft Auto 5 but I am not crossing my fingers. Simply we will have to wait and see what they are working on when it is revealed.

Crago also confirmed that Tantalus is working on porting a game on the Wii U to the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. I don’t know which game but I have a theory they will be trying to put ZombiU on other platforms as Zombi, this is based on Nintendo funding Lego City Undercover, as well as Bayonetta 2, It has also recently come to my attention that Nintendo has exclusive rights to Wonderful 101. Hopefully whatever it is will be good on other platforms and not be a colossal mistake.

^Nintendo owns exclusive rights to Wonderful 101 because it’s theirs. It was a co-development job between Nintendo SPD and Platinum Games. And since Nintendo owns the IP, it’s all theirs like any other first-party product.
