Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Wii U no-show explained

Konami lacks the resources for a Nintendo port

A spokesperson for Konami has revealed why there will be no Wii U version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.


Producer Dave Cox says the studio has neither the staff nor budget to accommodate a Wii U version, following news in January that there's "no chance" of a Nintendo port.

"The reason why we are developing it on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is simply because that's the amount of people we got," Cox told Eurogamer. "If we want to do a Wii U conversion, that's another 20 people. We just don't have the resources or the budget to do it."

Konami isn't snubbing Nintendo though - Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate will release for the 3DS next week.
