Just Cause 2 developer: Wii U dev kits are 'collecting dust'

Avalanche Studios founder criticises Nintendo

Avalanche Studios founder Chrisofer Sundberg says his studio's Wii U dev kits are "collecting dust", and that Nintendo is too difficult to communicate with.


Speaking to, Sundberg noted the small Wii U install base, because leveling wider criticisms at Nintendo.

"We actually had some development kits that just collected dust," he said. "It's a bit sad, because we wanted to do something. I think it's a cool platform, but right now it's not just up to us. We want the game to reach as many as possible."

Sundberg also said it is difficult to do business with Nintendo. "Nintendo have from our point of view always been difficult to reach. You never quite know who to contact."

While third-party support of the Wii U may be scant at present, Nintendo's first party software library is tipped to grow substantially post-E3.

Avalanche Studios is rumoured to be working on a third installment to its Just Cause series, as well as an open world Mad Max game.
