F1 2013 looks set to skip Wii U, no Vita version either

"It'd have to be a very different game just to run" on Nintendo's console

F1 2013 looks set to skip a Wii U release, while there's no planned Vita version either.

Steve Hood, the creative director on Codemasters' F1 series on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, played down the likelihood of the game making the jump to Nintendo's console in the following exchange with a fan on Twitter:


He also ruled out a Vita version:


F1 2012 released on September 21 last year for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Racing specialist Codies is due to officially reveal its next F1 game at 2pm today.

In our F1 2012 review, we said: "New modes and challenges will open up F1 2012 to a wider audience, but the strong underlying mechanics will still satisfy hardcore drivers.

"It takes some getting used to, but once you understand you're in total control of the relationship between the tyres and the track, you realise what a huge improvement it is. And it finally makes the last piece fall into place. Now, the game not only looks like F1, finally it moves like real F1. There's not much greater praise you can give an F1 game than that."
