We’ve already heard that Aliens: Colonial Marines’s best version will be headed to the Wii U, and of course it’s developers have already stated the Wii U is definitely a next generation console. Still, can you truly ever get enough developer quotes praising the Wii U? Brian Burleson, Senior Producer from Gearbox, had this to say:
”[Creating the Wii U version] has been pretty easy. The Wii U is a powerful, powerful machine and it can do a lot of cool new things. And so the game itself, moving it over to work on the Wii U was not much of a chore.
Now the interesting thing is finding out all the cool ways you can use the controller to do new stuff with it. You can imagine all the cool things we can do, with this franchise and having a thing with you, right? You can imagine some cool features, for sure. It’s not hard to imagine some cool features.”
Of course, the real thing we love hearing is how superior it is to present consoles. On that he said:
”(That’s) one thing I can’t talk about. Actually nailing the specs, they haven’t come out with them yet. (The Wii U version of Aliens will) “be better” (than the PS3 and Xbox 360 version in terms of visuals because of) “more modern tech.”
When asked just how the Wii U version will be better, Burleson said the following.
“You’ll have to wait and see. Just trust me on that one.”
