Rumor: Painkiller coming to Wii U
Nordic Games’ Painkiller: Hell & Damnation could be set for Wii U.
A new document unearthed from developer The Farm 51 hints at a possible version for Nintendo’s new console. A roughly translated excerpt suggests there are plans “involving production and release of new games in the series ‘Painkiller’ for the Wii U.”
Here’s the blurb in full:
“The Farm 51 Group developer has obtained an official game development license for the Wii U, whose premiere is planned in the fourth quarter of 2012. It should be noted that unlike the Xbox 360 platform and PlayStation 3, which are available on the market for several years, the opportunity to create games for the Wii U before the planned market launch is made available only to developers who are are planning to release titles in the coming years particularly of interest to Nintendo. In this case, not only the history but experience and current status of the issuer was analyzed, as well as the market potential for future products. The issuer has taken this action in cooperation with the publisher Nordic Games, in plans involving production and release of new games in the series “Painkiller” for the Wii U.”
One would think that if this information is trustworthy, Painkiller: Hell & Damnation has a good shot of landing on Wii U – though we’ll maintain a bit of skepticism until anything is officially announced.
