In an interview with Maxi-Geek, Tantalus Media CEO Tom Crago stated that his studio has been working on projects for the Switch. According to Crago, the studio, which developed The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, has been working on unannounced titles “for some time”. Crago also stated that Nintendo has made the development process “friendly and systematic,” and that he is personally excited for the Switch’s portability. He also suggested that, if Nintendo fans have any particular titles that they want to see ported, that they should suggest them through Tantalus’s Facebook page.

Tantalus’ new Wii U game is a port “for an absolute top notch publisher”, not a mature game
Posted on 7 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U | 11 Comments
The existence of a new “AAA” title from Tantalus Media, seemingly for Wii U, was outed over the weekend. Director of development Joss Ellis has since provided a few hints as to what the company will be working on.
Ellis teased that the game in question is a port, “but more of a complete rework for the Wii U” – think Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It’s also “for an absolute top notch publisher” and won’t be a mature/hardcore experience.
According to Ellis:
It is a ‘port’ but more of a complete rework for the Wii U: a bit like the work we did on Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut.
I can’t say what the title is but it is very exciting and is for an absolute top notch publisher.
This game will be credited Tantalus … it’s not an MA / 18 or ‘hard core’ game which ME-3 and DX:HR are.
