Wii owners missed out on a huge number of high-profile high definition games, but with Wii U around the corner everybody's hoping history won't repeat itself and the console will see the same kind of experience that are available on other formats. One such game many Nintendo fans would love to play is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, heading to other formats in November this year.
Official Nintendo Magazine recently interviewed Bethesda's Pete Hines and naturally enquired about the chance of seeing Skyrim on Wii U
It's definitely a possibility for the future. We'll look at any platform that will support that games we're trying to make, but that's the key thing - the console has to support the game as it is designed.
Hines was quick to quell any mouth-foaming though, outlining the lengthy process in converting a game the size of Skyrim:
Just doing 360, PS3 and PC - I don't think people understand the amount of work that goes into that. All of the localisation you have to do... all of the testing you have to do... on every platform in every language... It's a pretty huge undertaking.
Translation: don't hold your breath, but do cross your fingers.
