Konami community manager says Wii U install base is too small for PES 2014, down on Nintendo’s third-party relations, more

Update: One note on the Fox Engine – Bhatti says he doesn’t know if it’s compatible with Wii U or not.

PES European community manager Adam Bhatti has been tweeting up a storm as fans continue to inquire about Konami’s decision in not bringing this year’s soccer game to Wii U.

In one tweet, Bhatti said that there is “no demand for it”, though he went on to clarify that the Wii U’s install base is “tiny”. As a result, it “doesn’t make sense” to bring PES 2014 to the console.

Bhatti went on to say that Nintendo doesn’t “have any relationship with 3rd parties really. Our games never do well.” Other tweets tackle the fact that previous games on Wii have had difficulty selling one million copies, a hint that Fox Engine isn’t running on Wii U, and… well, the entire lineup of tweets just aren’t favorable to Nintendo.
