Please make 'Project Ukulele' for Wii U too!

Postby TheImpracticalJoker » Wed Mar 25, 2015 10:59 am

I don't own an Xbox or a PS of any sort, and I usually stick to Nintendo consoles as I enjoy the Nintendo controls.
So is there a good chance this game will be made for the Wii U also?

Playtonic have stated in a few interviews that they feel their Home is closer to Nintendo, and whilst their original intention was for PC they're very interested in a WII U release. We may get full multiplatform support across the board if we raise enough money in the Kickstarter, and shout loud enough!

That is so good to know!

I was worried that it would be for everything BUT Wii U, and I'd miss out on this great game.

Everything is still very early days, but from what little hints we've received, we're more like to receive a Wii U version than the other consoles - but they have stated emphatically that they want to try to please everyone and not give preferential treatment.

So if it wasn't, what would that mean?

Let's get this straight: Ukulele WILL be coming to PC, likely through Steam. However it will almost certainly NOT be PC exclusive. Everyone needs to chill.

I also hope that there will be a Wii U version.... but I won't buy it.
I love my Wii U, but I also want to play the best possible version of Project Ukulele.

Looking at the two screenshots from the presentation,
I already can assume that they'll have to downgrade the Wii U version.
And If I have the choice to play the game on Steam with 60 fps, Anti Aliasing and any resolution my hardware can handle (I'll go 4K this year)
OR playing a Wii U version without Anti Aliasing, perhaps only in 720p and/or maybe just 30 frames, I chose the PC.

The Wii U is my favorite console because of those great Nintendo games.
But when we talk about multi platform games: no chance in hell.
At least until Nintendo decides to once again sell hardware that isn't 7 years old at the first release day.

BigN is so afraid of casual gamers to not be willing to pay more than 299€/$ that they don't realise/care about how the non-casual gamers may suffer under the limitations that the outdated hardware is forcing on the available games.

I rather wait a few months and save up 400-600 bucks than being able to afford a new console on day one but receiving hardware that is older than my sticky & yellow microwave.
Good things have a price, and 400-600 bucks isn't that much for some decent/current gaming hardware. Building a PC with similar output is much more expensive.

(I don't wan't to say 400-600 $/€ wouldn't be much money, but assuming you aren't a student with allowance money anymore, it's just a matter of being patient a few weeks.)

Nintendo's blue ocean strategy (winning new customer groups that weren't gamers before --> parents, elderly people) was a huge success on the Wii.
But it was in the nature of this matter that those new customers said "Why should I get a Wii U? I already have a Nintendo."
And the old customers miss the times of N64 and Gamecube when owning a Nintendo console actually meant having a current gen console that is not missing out on multi platform games and is not receiving inferior/downgraded ports of what everyone else is playing.

So while some people like to see the bad sales numbers of the Wii U as a sign that Nintendo might leave the hardware market, I see the opportunity that they'll finally enter it again with an serious approach that has the core gamers more in mind than the Wii Fit moms.

I apologise if anyone should feel offended or have the impression that I went off-topic to far.

The WiiU can handle those screenshots, have you SEEN Mario Kart 8 or Smash 4? Looks just like em.

Smash 4 is 1080p 60fps, Mario Kart 8 was 60 fps although 720p. It still looked great. The WiiU is actually doing better at FPS and resolution than the other consoles so far this gen.

ITT: Haters and naysayers

Edit: Grunty Indistries is also a messy spaghetti-tunnel maze. But I love that level anyway. It's a super inconvenient and tedious level to play but I enjoy it.
