Why LEGO: The Lord of the Rings isn't on Wii U

LEGO: The Lord of the Rings is available on practically every platform. Because of this - as well as Nintendo's tight relationship with Warner Bros. Interactive - it seemed inevitable that the game would eventually come to Wii U.

As we now know, that won't happen. But that raises the simple question: why?

A Warner Bros. Interactive rep explained:

"The primary reason is that [Traveller's Tales] and Lego were already working on Lego City Undercover for Wii U."

And a studio releasing more than ONE title on a new platform is unheard of?
I've had a chance to play this game on PS3 and it's a lot of fun for LOTR fans. It doesn't break any new ground by any means but it's a nice addition to the LEGO family. Oh, well, the fewer parts we get the better. Bring on the original titles =)
It's dangerous to go alone!

if I had to pick, I'd probably pick Undercover over any of the other titles anyway. They're fun but all so similar...
