Straight Right

Last year, we heard that Tantalus Media – the developer behind Mass Effect 3 and Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s Wii U versions – started work on a “AAA next-gen title” for Nintendo’s console. It was confirmed soon after that the project in question was a port/rework of a game “for an absolute top notch publisher.”

Although we haven’t heard anything about it for about a year, the title is fortunately still in the works. Tantalus’ Tom Crago said during the Fragments of Silicon podcast that it will be revealed “soon”, is launching this year, and is “the biggest thing we’ve ever done”.

Crago’s full comments are as follows:

We’re doing that. It hasn’t been announced, but it will be soon. And can I just further add to the mystique and say that it’s big. It’s the biggest thing we’ve ever done. And it’ll come out this year, and I hope it won’t disappoint.

While not related, Crago also confirmed that Tantalus is taking a Wii U title and porting it to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Straight Right, developer of Mass Effect 3 on Wii U and Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut, has interest in working with Nintendo’s console again.

Managing director Tom Crago spoke with Digitally Downloaded about the system in a recent interview, noting how the studio would “love to do more with Wii U.” Crago also confirmed that Funky Barn from sister studio Tantalus “is in the process of being iterated”.

He said:

We’d love to do more Wii U. In fact our sister studio, Tantalus, released a Wii U launch title, Funky Barn, which is in the process of being iterated right now. It’s an original title, much more casual, and something pretty far removed from Deus Ex and Mass Effect.
