Castlevania Producer says Wii U version "would be cool"; "never say never"

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 hasn't been confirmed for Wii U but the producer of the new Castlevania 3DS game has told Official Nintendo Magazine that a Castlevania Wii U game would be cool.

David Cox, the producer of Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate, said: "At the moment there are no plans for a Wii U version. But never say never. It'd be cool, wouldn't it?"

It certainly would. After all, the last Castlevania game that was released on a Nintendo home console was the disappointing beat 'em up Castlevania Judgement so it would be great to have a proper adventure back on Wii U.

It would also make perfect sense as Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate bridges the gap between Lords of Shadow and Lords Of Shadow 2.

As Cox explains: "Lords Of Shadow is the beginning of the saga about Dracula, Lords of Shadow 2 will be the end. Mirror Of Fate sits in the middle, and this is more focused on the Belmonts and their relationship to Dracula. In a nutshell that's it: familiar names, familiar characters, familiar themes, but rebooted, with a few elements turned on their head to give it a fresh perspective."

Grr. I really don't want to have to buy any 360 or PS3 games after the Wii U comes out. If LoS2 doesn't come out on the Wii U, I'll have no choice. Loved the first game.

3DS bashing is not considered trolling, but being on the Vita board IS considered trolling.

Its them saying "if the WiiU takes off, we will port LoS2 over and see how well it does"

I just think third parties are holding back because they dont know if the WiiU will take off (and nobody knows this, not one single person), and even if it does take off, will their games sell on that system?

Plenty of third party games just did not sell well on the Wii.

I could have sworn that we had news that they canned a Mirror of Fate Wii U port to make a Lords of Shadow 2 Wii U version right before E3.

I think it "would be cool" if Konami, Capcom and others would stop to ruin their franchises by outsourcing them to western teams.

Sometimes it works, but now companies are overdoing it.
