Square Enix on Murdered: Soul Suspect’s Absence on Wii U: “This Just Doesn’t Fit”

on February 27, 2014 2:17 PM

While Microsoft and Sony fans duke it out over whose games have the better resolution and frame-rates, the Wii U has been left out in the cold, with major developers and publishers passing the system by. Square Enix’s upcoming crime-horror game, Murdered: Soul Suspect, will also be absent on the platform, and they were very specific as to why.

“[Murdered: Soul Suspect] just doesn’t fit,” on the Wii U, Airtight Games Chief Creative Officer Matt Brunner told Gamespot, “in all honesty, all the Wii U games I’ve ever played, the only good ones are the ones that are made specifically for [the Wii U].” This is unfortunate considering the game is being developed for past-gen consoles including the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, which the Wii U is just a little more powerful than.

Murdered: Soul Suspect is being developed by Airtight Games and will be published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in June of this year.
