Skyrim on Wii U “definitely a possibility”

Hold on to your horny helmets, RPG fans; Dovahkiin may just make his way to Wii U.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launches on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this November, but it may also appear on Nintendo’s new hardware later on. Such a move is definitely possible, according to Bethesda’s Pete Hines.

“We’ll look at any platform that will support that games we’re trying to make, but that’s the key thing – the console has to support the game as it is designed,” the game director tells ONM.

“The more changes we have to make to a game the less and less palatable it becomes because making a game is an enormous process. Just doing 360, PS3 and PC – I don’t think people understand the amount of work that goes into that. All of the localisation you have to do… all of the testing you have to do… on every platform in every language… It’s a pretty huge undertaking.

“So you aren’t just supporting the Wii U; You’re supporting it in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish,” he said, adding that a Wii U release is “definitely a possibility.”

Should recent rumors on the console’s development troubles prove true though, a Wii U version could be as far as a year away.
