Over on the game’s official blog, Oddworld Inhabitants and Just Add Water shared an official update regarding the status of Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty for Wii U.

The existence of the 8GB Wii U model no longer seems to be much of an issue. However, the team is “dependent” on the completed versions of New ‘n’ Tasty for PS3 and PS Vita, as quite a number of optimizations for these versions will be used in the Wii U SKU. Additionally, “There is also specific functionality in Unity that isn’t currently supported on Wii U.” At the moment, there is “considerable work to be done” regarding Oddworld on Wii U.

Don’t fret too much. It was said towards the end of today’s status report, “We remain invested in the Wii U platform, and reiterate our desire to have Abe on a Nintendo console.”

Read on below for the full Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty Wii U update.
