Fez For Wii U Is Highly Unlikely Unless Nintendo Pays For It

Posted by Orla Madden

It'd have to port it, too

Fez creator, Phil Fish, has been doing the rounds across the internet recently, with his comments that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate would be more suited to the Playstation Vita; he later attempted to clear up the fact that he was taken out of context on Twitter, by saying that he loves Nintendo more than it deserves.

In a fresh tweet on his widely praised title, Fez, Fish has stated that it will be unlikely to reach the Wii U unless it's funded and ported by Nintendo:

Similar noises have been made — potentially with tongue in cheek in this example — by Team Meat, stating that the presence of Meat Boy in Super Smash Bros. would get the popular platformer onto Wii U. On the flipside, Nintendo of America's Dan Adelman has recently spoken about making eShop publication "as frictionless as possible"; we're not sure that'll include paying for titles such as Fez itself.

So not only will it not arrive on Nintendo's latest home console, a 3DS port has also been ruled out too, which we reported on last week. What are your thoughts? Is it a game you would have liked to see released for either system?

It merely sounds like he doesn't see it being a hit on the eShop.

Or finds it being too much effort for him to add a 3D effect, Gamepad integration, whatever.

I remember him being way frustrated with Microsoft's treatment of Fez on XBLA, I'm a little surprised if he isn't communicating with Nintendo, especially if Nintendo are as indie friendly as other devs are making them out to be.

@pheonixology Actually, Fish makes a living developing video games, so I'd like to think he knows a little something about the industry - eh?

The short of it is this: nearly every ranting fan here that's dishing out obscenities at Fish are doing nothing but putting themselves down to the same level as him, and loose tongue. Had his game - that's all but perfectly fitting on a Nintendo console - landed on the Wii U/3DS exclusively, I have no doubt that it would be widely praised here.

I've never played the game but instead of waiting for Nintendo to do it for him why doesn't he just start a kickstarter and hire somebody to port it? If the fans love it that much it well get funded but if not then no real loss.

Well, at least he's right about that last sentence.
Wondering why he won't port it himself...betting he would earn some decent $ on it...but what do I know..

Peach64 said:

He's not asking Nintendo to pay him to put it on Wii U, he's saying he has no plans to bring it to the platform, but if Nintendo pay someone to do the port, then he'll agree to it. Nothing wrong with that, no need for the hateful comments towards the guy. He probably just wants to focus on the platforms that will make him the most money, PSN, IOS and Steam, and then work on something new. He could spend six months porting it to the Wii U and have it sell 100k, or spend the same time porting to any of the other ones and have it sell 5 million. It's common sense.

SilentHunter382 said:

@Peach64 I couldn't agree with you more. As a person studing game design you would want to release your game on the system that has a large player based so you can make the most money on.

No point in creating a port for a system where you may only make your money back. And if that happened and judging by the comments from past threads he would make a loss because of people not getting it because of spite.

@Usagi-san If you create one product and making money from it it means your making a living off it. >.<

how can you be taken out of context on Twitter? Does not compute. He made some very stupid and immature comments and now he'll probably never get a game released on a Nintendo platform. Business 101: do not bite the hand that feeds you.

@SilentHunter382 But Slapshot was using this to argue that he must obviously know something about making it in the game industry.

I'm not trying to be mean or anything. If he has only made a one-hit wonder then he's a newcomer and actually may not be all that familiar with the industry. When slapshot said he made a living developing video games I assumed he had worked on other games and was a little known veteran.

@Peach64 ...You're aware the 3DS eShop can be more viable than iOS and even Android in some cases, right? It wouldn't make quite much sense to rule out the best-selling portable console.
http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/02/3ds_eshop_version_of_gunman_clive_outsells_android_edition

I'm sure Dan Adelman would and still could have been friends with him to bring the game over to the 3DS eShop. But it's obvious here on this website that we do not like him and hence yes, the platform would definitely not be profitable for him. :)

Fez was received well critically, and I believe it sold well on XBLA.

I would have thought bringing it to 3DS would have made more sense than bringing it to Vita from a business perspective, but maybe he just has a preference? I'm not gonna get my pitchforks over this.

@Peach64 After all the stuff he has said the past few days how can you still defend him?! He obviously is just trying to draw attention to himself and unfortunately this site as well as many others are giving it to him! I'm not saying the guy needs to shut up but the media needs to just ignore him already. This is like the fourth or fifth topic about him in like the last week or so. Who cares about his one game?! He's acting like its the best game on the internet and everyone wants to play it. I for one wouldn't play it now if it was given to me for free! Just shut up already and make games for whatever console you want Mr Fish!!

Edit: Ok so maybe he does need to shut up lol! ;)

@DePapier The thing is, Gunman Clive isn't that great. It's not bad, but it doesn't stand out at all on any of those other marketplaces. The choice on the 3DS eShop is quite small, so it has a captive audience.

Fez won numerous game of the year awards, and it would not get overlooked on the other marketplaces like Gunman Clive did. The best selling games on all those other marketplaces vastly outsell the best selling games on 3DS or Wii U eShops.

"Then port it." Wait, What?
"Which will never happen." .......No comment
If this WiiU port is so difficult as this guy says, then how come he's planning on an PSN and other systems port with no such complications? (as of yet)

I really don't see the great appeal of this game, it doesn't help that the maker seems like a douche....but even if he wasn't I don't see what's so amazing or ground breaking about it.

Certainly not worth Nintendo's time and money paying for it.

@Chunky_Droid I haven't thought about it in depth, (and I'm not sure how much the two are alike), but I imagine it's mostly due to Fez coming to the PS3.

Phil can stick it where the sun don't shine though.

Maybe Nicalis might be into handling a Wii U port, but that would require Phil to communicate with someone and reach some sort of agreement.

@Grubdog and @Nintenjoe64 LOL! Both your comments made me laugh.

Anyway I'm gonna try to keep this as FAMILY FRIENDLY as possible. This guy can seriously go.......sheer himself, self absorbed COC........I mean AS.......I mean CLOWNS like that aren't even worth the dirt I walk on. I can see where he's coming from to a certain degree but it's the way you say things.

The best thing to do is to keep your mouth shut! You can't just pretty much say "I don't think your worth dealing with unless your company pays for me" Ofcourse fans are gonna be abset you son of a........HAMSTER!! I don't even know why people are defending this KITTEN. I've heard of the trials there are to being an indie developers but that doesn't mean you can run around and diss other products!!

There's so much I wanna say right now but to be honest this FISH isn't even worth my time.

Spoony_Tech

Spoony_Tech said:

@Peach64 Yes he is entitled to those comments. Heck he could even say why is this even on a Nintendo platform. It makes more sense to go multiplatform for Capcom but he didn't stop there and that's the problem so many have for him!! When you say something that all the world can see of course its going to be taken out of context.

Mad or not I'm pretty sure he meant every word he said about the 3ds and ds. It's like a drunk person saying something and its usually their true feeling about a subject!

It's his choice to make a game for any platform he wants and say whatever he wants but when you are in the industry your comments weigh more then someone who is not!

Fish should be careful what he types on the Internet. Unlike using your voice, you have time to read back on your comment, edit, and send before the world that follows your posts reads it.

FYI this is my third retype on this comment before I reply. The first two was alittle childish and/or mean of me.

He's a hardworking indie, he almost got bankrupt making a Fez game, and from a business standpoint this statement obviously makes sense. But he's got to work on his speaking skills or people will start to get mad at him. Really, he almost passed the line the other day of becoming a ego-filled indie. I hope that he isn't, but right now I see him as a hardworking indie who's bad at making public statements and such.

@Aviator And you just kinda proved my point. Twitter isn't private anyone can see it. You allow people to follow you and you have no idea what their motives are.

If microsoft never bothered to have a charge on the patches I bet that more games on the system would get the same treatment the PC versions would get for patches

I respect Phil because he released an indie game which was pretty, but at this point you can't take 5 years to release 1 game, choose the system with a bad patching policy, release a patch that breaks the game for some people, and talk this much smack on the industry.
And suggesting that Nintendo would handle the port themselves? How pretentious can you get? Surely he could convince a 3rd party like Nicalis or something to help with the port; now he just sounds like an ass.

Held out on buying fez after his opinions on Japanese developers but cracked eventually, regretting my purchase now as it funds thus idiot. After having played it I can say it would really benefit from two screens as I lost track of the amount of time I spent going between the game and the map screen....

As for mh3u, having a blast with it. Most psp monster hunters would've given their left "claw" for an abomination like the circle pad pro. Although 3ds should've had 2 sticks as standard...

Everyone has the right to say what they want but he could make sure he doesn't say something absurd or at least choose his words a bit more carefully when it came out to that 3DS tweet. Obviously the guy has his opinion and I couldn't care less (though some people here seem to care), but he isn't just a guy like me or you, he has fans, potential buyers, etc, so yea, he could think for a second before saying something.

@SilentHunter382
It's not just that, it's the way he acted when talking about those problems.
Not to mention how jealous he seemed towards Notch when Minecraft did so well and got major support from Microsoft. If he had played his cards right and actually talked to them about the issues, he probably would have gotten a similar deal. But instead he started badmouthing everyone involved, so I find it hard to feel any sympathy for him.

Jaz007 said:

All of the rage here is complete unreasonable. He is just saying that he doesn't think it's worth it to port over to Nintendo and that they would need to do it themselves if they wanted the game. He's not asking them to port it and would be rather surprised if they did. No ego or pride in this tweet at all. The only people who are being ridiculous, unreasonable, and acting immature right now are the people insulting Phil for this comment.

Nintendo should do the exact opposite of what everyone expects and actually extend an olive branch to Fish. In the end it's customers that matter and Wii U really needs content. Nintendo in reaching out to Fish, perhaps even porting the game as he says, would take the higher ground and create some good PR.

OH, WE'LL PUT OUR GAME THERE... AS LONG AS NINTENDO PUTS MY CHARACTER IN SMASH BROS. WHICH IS TOTALLY POSSIBLE BECAUSE I MADE A GAME AND IT WAS GOOD SO THAT MAKES ME ENTITLED TO DEMAND THINGS FROM NINTENDO!

I'm sorry, call me immature about this if you want, but I lost all interest in this game anyways after Fish's lack of tact and professionalism. I am aware of him more than his recent tweets that appeared here and I actually was planning on downloading Fez but his ego really has bugged the heck out of me. It's not even that he spoke out against Nintendo, I've nothing against that. He just needs to learn some humility and what is appropriate to say in public mediums. A lot of good indie developers are competing for my money. I respect his opinion on disliking Nintendo, I just don't agree with how he chose to express it. He really has no filter.

No matter how much anyone defends this guy here, I'll still see him as incredibly arrogant. I've looked into his game as a PC gamer, and it's not that interesting, so no loss here.
Though, these articles are giving him and his game free publicity. Some of the people here who have negative feelings toward him may also develop curiosity towards his game and may want to check it out on other platforms. Maybe those people will find more fun out of it than I did.

Phil Fish seems like video gaming's own Scrooge. It's not the first time he's refused to pay for something - a patch for Fez on the 360 corrupted file saves and he refused to sort it out because it would have cost him too much.

Way to treat your paying customers Fishboy!

@MickeyTheGreat Yup! I agree with you 100%. They get more credit than they deserve. Honestly, I really cannot stand indie games. They don't hold a candle in terms of quality and depth to the pros as Nintendo, Capcom, Konami, etc... And the funny thing is, all of these indie games are so dirivative of each other. This reminds me of the early 90s that pumped out land-fills full of crappy hipster indie music. No worries though, these guys won't last long. In a decade, I guarantee we won't be playing Fez. We'll still be playing Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, SMB, Mario Galaxy, Pikmin, Metroid, etc...

Why do people hate the fact that he won't self-publish Fez on Wii U? It'd cost a lot of money, and I honestly don't know if it'd be worth the venture on the Wii U, what with its paltry user-base. The lack of consistent releases is hurting usage as well. Yeah, we got three games a week ago. Next month, however, is looking as barren as February. That results in people not using their system.

I mean, I get people not liking him becuase of his tone and acting like a jerk, but the overall thing he's saying isn't that hard of a thing to understand.

@AcesHigh You need to get to playing Journey and Mark of the Ninja. We will be playing those in a decade.

No.

The comment system on Nintendo Life is fine just the way it is. In fact, imo it's superior to most other sites in it's simplicity and lack of convoluted garbage getting in the way of simply reading people's comments and posting your own.

I don't want a crappy popularity based comments system like on IGN for example, where basically the first post stays at the top because everyone simply reads that one, responds to it and rates it (because they want to be popular too), with barely any other comments getting a sniff as they are pushed further and further down the list onto page 60 or whatever.

No.

The comment system on Nintendo Life is just fine the way it is, thanks.

At least here all the comments actually tend to get read and no specific comment get's an unfair bias, either positive or negative, based on a totally broken rating system.

Just comment that you like the comment from the other guy and leave it at that.

@moomoo Played them... sorry, they don't float my boat. And those aren't even close to the classics I mentioned in so many ways: depth, breadth, value. Comparing them to the titles you mentioned, to me, is inconceivable.

And yeah, a lot of peoples' dislike for him IS in his tone and arrogance. He likes Nintendo more than they deserve? What the hell does that mean actually? Couple that with the other points I and others have mentioned - about his work not being that great and you can see why people don't think HE deserves the bandwidth and attention he's already gotten.

As for your point about it not being worth porting to WiiU because of install base?? What, and Vita has a bigger install base? Because that's where he said Monster Hunter should have gone... and 3DS has how many TIMES the install base tha Vita does? So that logic doesn't hold water. Logic simply implies that this guys has a hard-on against Nintendo. Nothing other than him just not liking his dealings with them. Just read his words, dude. Who knows the reason? But it's obvious that he's not looking at things objectively and he has some kind of issue with Nintendo. Otherwise he wouldn't like them "more than they deserve".

You’re an indie developer; it not like Nintendo is going to waste their time with a simple indie game like yours in the first place must less, pay money for it to even be considered. Phil Fish, shut up already. You can talk all you want when you develop a better Ethos in the gaming community!

That said, I'm a little annoyed by the tweet, but it's not what he said but how he says it. I don't think he probably means to, but he comes off in kind of a bad way on something of a regular basis. Personally I think people overall should chill for a bit, go relax, and come at this with a fresh head if they're going to discuss it. Ranting isn't useful at all cough cough.

Nintendo works pretty hard to cater to indie developers, I'd imagine what this guy is saying would be kind of offensive to Nintendo.

@Neram He doesn't think his game is so special that Nintendo should pay for it. He's saying he has no plans to port Fez to Wii U but if Nintendo want to do it, then they can.

@Koto Fez isn't out on anything but Xbox for now, so not sure how you tried it on PC. I think a lot of people on here bashing the game haven't actually played it and are just trying to put it down because they've misinterpreted Fish's comments as Nintendo hate. Fez is amazing. It's better than ANYTHING available on Wii U so far. It's won several game of the year awards including Eurogamer, one of, if not the most respected gaming website out there.

Phil Fish has foot-in-mouth disease to be sure, but he's just one guy. Developing a proprietary game for other platforms is a difficult task (PC and XBox 360 are virtually the same development platform so that is much easier) and unless he made a gazillion dollars he needs to be careful how he spends his time and money. I don't see why this statement is in any way controversial. Hopefully he develops his next game with a little more forward thinking about other platforms.

Surely most of you have been on the internet long enough to be familiar with the concept of a troll. That's what this guy is. Quit feeding him.

Mister Phil, we know it now: You don't want to bring it to any Nintendo device!!

Many of us would have liked it, but you can't be forced!

End of discussion, moving on to other things!

Fez is a great game that would be a perfect fit on 3DS. Too bad it has pretty much zero percent chance of ever happening.

As I said in another Fish thread, I will never get a game from him. He reminds of Rob Liefield.

Why not give your full support to someone that will badmouth your system whenever he sees fit...
Honestly, has he ever heard of kickstarter before?

What is this Fez thing I keep hearing about? A new Ubi soft petz game?

@Pikminboy Nintendo won't search nobody, they don't need to, indie developers willingly search them because they know nintendo's interested in anything that's both ingenious and innovative for their systems and secondly, they aren't that stupid, by now they've probably seen fish's notion of nintendo by all this coverage he's had by now, so they will move on ignoring all these bullsh*t because it isn't important to them.

@Zodiak13 Yeah, I agree, while I don't hate the guy or anything, he kinda reminds me of rob, who also thinks he is a comic book god by creating mediocre characters and drawing like sh*t, he isn't mark millar, brian m. bendis, bryan hitch or david finch but like fish he feels like he's one of the big guns, go figure.

@Peach64 That is YOUR opinion, as someone who has played FEZ recently, I prefer mighty switch force hyper drive edition. You're comparing apples with oranges here, FEZ came out almost a year ago and the wii u eshop started operations a little more than 4 months ago, so at least wait another 8 months before you start criticizing.

Fish is actually a pretty good guy and I'll buy fez if it would come to the eshop.He just gave his opinion just like anybody can at anytime,just like me I think mister hunter is a terrible game but that's just me.

I think everybody here acknowledges his right to voice his opinion, it's just the way that he does and the backpedaling that comes afterward. And, as ultraraichu stated, he had time to edit his tweet before he posts it, so we can only assume that he is stating such negative things for attention, which doesn't help us like him.

I don't find this comment to be as awful as everyone states. I mean, he's basically saying I don't have time or interest in doing it — but if Nintendo (or seemingly some other publisher) handles all the work, then fine.

I can't figure out what's wrong with that. Maybe it could have been stated more eloquently, but people are acting like this was some sort of personal insult.

Eugh his game is bland and garbage, anyways. I don't want his elitist trash on my home console.

@Kirk I'd prefer it more like on Joystiq. You can like a person's comment, but it has no bearing on what order the comments are in. Seems perfect to me. Also, other than checking my Twitter, there's no good way for me to find out when someone's replied to my comment, so there's a good chance whoever I gave kudos to wouldn't even know. In fact, I'm doubtful you'll even see this by now.

@NINTENBOY those are some sick spears right there bro. But seriously, this guy is just totally biased. He sees something he think he doesn't like, it's dead. Well guess what. World dont work that way. You think your the s**t just from your one little game? Go ta hell. We don't need assware devs like this guy.
