Alien Isolation

Sega may be trying a little hard to wipe the horrible memory of Aliens: Colonial Marines, but if that means we get a solid game, as Alien: Isolation looks, we don’t mind. Fashioned as a first person perspective, exploration title in the vein of Outlast, Alien: Isolation is looking to incorporate various survival horror aspects with several aspects of the film.

That being said, while it will release for next-gen and current gen platforms, the official Twitter for Alien: Isolation confirmed that, “Right now, we don’t have plans to put the game on Wii U.”

And quite frankly, we don’t blame them. Would visuals such as this be possible on the Wii U? For that matter, would there be an audience on a Nintendo console for a survival horror title such as this? Regardless, we look forward to seeing Alien: Isolation on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC in Q4 2014.

    the visuals wouldn’t be an issue, even if it won’t hit the top end of the XBO/PS4 versions it could easily look better than the 360/PS3 versions.

    The real issue would probably be optimizing the game for a 3rd in-between hardware tier instead of just one high and one low tier as well as the fact that they would have to do something with the second screen or else reviewers will call them out for under utilizing the hardware.

    And if they did do something for the gamepad screen, Sony and MS would probably be insistent on Vita/SmartGlass equivalents which would then be more work on top of everything else.
