The recently revealed ZombiU is supposed to be a Wii U exclusive title, and frankly it looks quite good. It gives Nintendo fans the bragging rights of having a core, mature exclusive. However, with the new Xbox Glass and PS Vita functionalities for the Xbox 360 and the PS3 respectively, the HD twins will be able to replicate Wii U experiences, and Ubisoft may have plans of releasing the upcoming survival horror game on the two systems.
“ZombiU at its core was designed to be a great Wii U game and in order to make that work on other platforms they would have to change a lot of what makes the game cool,” Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key told IGN. “And I’m not saying that can’t be done, but not in the next six months, you know?
“When we launched the Wii we had a game called Red Steel that was exclusive to the Wii and it was designed for the Wii. We talked about bringing that to other platforms, and we always kept coming back to ‘what makes the game cool isn’t what would make it cool on those other systems.’ The brand itself we generally try to exploit everywhere we can, but I think for now it’s going to be a really, really good Wii U game.”
“There’s definitely going to be knowledge that we gain from developing for Wii U that we’ll be able to transfer not only to SmartGlass technology but also to even the cross-talk on PlayStation 3 and Vita,” he continued. “The whole industry is evolving towards this multiple screen mentality. We love that.”
