Tomb Raider Reboot Skipping Wii U

Lara Croft in the 2012 Tomb Raider reboot

According to Crystal Dynamics global brand director Karl Stewart, Tomb Raider fans looking to play this fall’s heavily hyped reboot of the series will have to do it on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, or PC.  He stated there are currently no plans to port the game for the Wii U launch or any other Nintendo platform.

The reason given for no port was that if they did make one, Crystal Dynamics would want to approach it differently and build it to take advantage of the unique functionality of the Wii U.  Whether that’s polite PR-speak to keep from burning bridges or a sign that the generational tradition of third party developers abandoning Nintendo consoles has already started before the Wii U could even launch, we’ll have to wait and see.  At any rate, it’s tough news for Nintendo fans that like Tomb Raider.

No word yet on an exact release date for the new Tomb Raider aside from the general “holiday season” but we should learn more about that as well as the games that will be on Wii U as we approach this year’s E3.

We knew Resident Evil 6 was coming but now we have a trailer and release date.

Seemingly out of nowhere, Capcom unveiled a new trailer for Resident Evil 6 and announced a release date of November 20th of this year.  The release coming so soon was a bit of a surprise considering we’re already getting Resident Evil:  Operation Raccoon City on March 20th.  While RE:ORC is a mutiplayer tactical shooter made by former SOCOM developer Slant Six featuring a non-canon “what if” style story set between Resident Evil 2 and 3, RE6 is a full fledged sequel working from and building upon 15 years of story from the last five games.
