AlphaDream Currently Has No Plans For The Mario & Luigi Series On Wii U
Posted by Orla Madden
The idea is interesting, however
The latest addition to one of Nintendo's most popular handheld franchises, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros., arrived on European 3DS' at the start of this month and has been causing sweet dreams ever since. The series has been a handheld exclusive since its debut with Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga on the GameBoy Advance in 2003. But what about moving the series to the Wii U in the future?
In a recent interview with CVG, AlphaDream Director Hiroyuki Kubota and Nintendo Producer Akira Otani were asked if the studio would ever consider developing a Wii U version, to which Otani responded:
As a developer I am interested, but we currently have no plans for a Wii U version. If we want to convey the amusement and fun of the character animations and reactions using AlphaDream's pixel art, I think handheld consoles are the best for doing this.
It's good to know there's interest in the idea, but do you dream of a home entry version in the series, or is it better suited to handhelds? Let us know in the comments section below.
