Straight Right working on ‘AAA Square Enix Wii U port’
posted on 10.14.12 at 08:05 PM EDT by (@salromano)
Mass Effect 3 Wii U dev has another high-profile port in the works.

Straight Right, the developer behind the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3, is currently hard at work “porting a triple-A Square Enix game to the yet-to-be-released Wii U platform,” according to the LinkedIn profile of the technical project manager Chris Slater.

The possibilities are many. It could be that the recently released Sleeping Dogs will come to Wii U. Or one of Square Enix’s older titles, such as Final Fantasy XIII-2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, or Just Cause 2. Or it could be one of Square Enix’s upcoming games, such as Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Tomb Raider, or Hitman: Absolution. Who knows?

Thanks, NeoGAF.

  • probably something from the western branch of square enix

  • Final Fantasy XIII I can bet with all the Linearity, and probably bonus content.

  • DesmaX

    I’m thinking Deus Ex, or maybe Sleeping Dogs

  • KurisuMakise

    My bet: Sleeping Dogs or Tomb Raider. FF is out of the question.

    • FaithlessMr

       My thoughts exactly!

    • i wouldn’t think sleeping dogs as much as say deus ex, but tomb raider is a strong possibility as well. i just think deus ex would be an awesome fit for the wiiu.

  • PrinceHeir

    would love Deus Ex Human Revolution with all DLCs, Final Fantasy XIII+Final Fantasy XIII-2 all DLCs, Last Remnant, or even Hitman Absolution :)

    • SlashZaku

      Last Remnant?  The PS3 version never came out.

      • AdamBoy64

        This won’t happen as I think Microsoft probably have the rights.But if it was an enhanced port of Infinite Undiscovery, I would lose things. Largely money.

        I know that’s not an ‘AAA’ title, but I’ve never liked using that term anyway.
        Last Remnant would be cool though too.

  • FaithlessMr

    My money’s on Sleeping Dogs, or Tomb Raider. I have a hard time believing they’d touch any of the japanese division games.

  • Duc PC-QB

    Final Fantasy Versus XIII. The WiiU version will even come out before the PS3 lol

    • KingOptimusOrigins111

      Nope, keep wishing it will remain PS3 exclusive. hahahahaha!!!!!!

      • GetOffMy_Lawn

        Thank you for keeping the comments section mature. 

        • KingOptimusOrigins111

          Your Welcome

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      That would be excruciatingly stupid,it would only delay versus and I doubt they would give this project out to another publisher,I also doubt they would be porting it before its finished.

      • He was joking.

        • KingOptimusOrigins111

          No he wasn’t.

          • AuroraXIII

            Yes he was.

            • KingOptimusOrigins111

              No he wasn’t.

              • AuroraXIII

                Yes he was. Saying it would come out on Wii U first was the joke. Now it’s not funny any more.

                • KingOptimusOrigins111

                  This is not a laughing matter at all.

                  • AuroraXIII

                    You just laughed in your reply to him.

                    • KingOptimusOrigins111

                      I thought he was serious so to get back at him I laugh to see how he would respond back but he hasn’t responded.

                  • Only because you killed the moment.

                    • KingOptimusOrigins111

                      And I’m glad I killed the moment :)

          • Of course he was joking.

            Are you really that oblivious?

            • KingOptimusOrigins111

              The discussion is over your a little late.

              • So your oblivious AND obnoxious. Fascinating.

                • KingOptimusOrigins111

                  You sound a little to aggressive.

                  You Mad Bro?

      • it was a joke dude

  • new_tradition

    I have no idea what game this could be. Wii U appears to be able to handle the same games like the PS3 and XBOX 360 can, so it’s hard to dismiss some titles due to hardware requirement.

    They said it was a port, so *maybe* it’s a game that already came out?

  • Koatl

    I’m hoping for Tomb Raider. Maybe Sleeping Dogs.

  • InsaneChronos

    I guess it’s Deus Ex Human Revolution.

  • Porting, eh???

    Well, they’re working on an already released game that I’m sure of… I say Sleeping Dogs or games from SE’s western branch…

    This is a risky move for the developer as they’re currently working on two games at once and in the country they are in… If they failed, they might have to close down the studio for good… Like what happened to Team Bondi….

  • Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 would be great on Wii U. In the future.. when SE gives us VS I hope to see it on Wii U also along with 360 and PS3. The more people playing and supporting these titles the better.

    • holly

      I agree with you because of Versus, but i honestly don’t think that SE would give a japanese title to a western studio, even if it’s just a port. It will be most likely Tomb Raider.

    • InsaneChronos

      Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy…

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    I would like to say sorry for my actions but I do not believe Final Fantasy Versus XIII will go multiplat or even see the day of light on the Wii U. 

    With Nomura if you look at his past he only develops one game per a console and it just so happen that Versus XIII is for PS3 only. He has confirmed over and over that its PS3 only and people still continue to want to believe it will go multiplat. He even said that he wanted to make a massive open world Final Fantasy game running in real time with Versus XIII. The Xbox 360 had to run FF XIII on 2 disc and they cut content out of the game and turned it into a sequel. I seriously don’t believe Nomura wants to cut content on Versus just so a console that is only known for shooters can have it. If you look at Gran Turismo 5 do you seriously think it would look the same and have the same content in the game if it was multiplat and not exclusive? no it can’t because PS3 is more powerful than 360.

    Now Nintendo fans what I don’t get and what I can’t understand is why the interest in Versus XIII now? Where were you guys when Versus XIII was announce May 2006?, Where were you guys when Square release a trailer of Stella and Noctis talking to each other?, Where were you guys when Square release a extended trailer at TGS 2009 and another trailer at TGS 2010?, & Where were you guys when Square had the January 2011 trailer?

    I tell you where you Nintendo fans were. You guys were playing Wii Fit, Wii Sports, Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Kirby, and all the other casual Nintendo first party exclusives for the Wii and saying graphics don’t matter gameplay does but as soon as Nintendo announces a HD console now you guys want Versus. Im sorry that you guys want to deny the truth but lets face it you guys didn’t care about Versus until Nintendo announce the Wii U. Yall even went crazy for a day when you guys thought they changed Versus to FF XIV and it was coming to the Wii U before E3 2012 until Square shot the rumor down the next day. What I believe will happen is next year is they will rename Versus and reconfirm again that it is coming to PS3 in 2014. 

    Im going to tell you why Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix is coming exclusive to PS3 and most likely Kingdom Hearts 2.5 as well. Its simple, Kingdom Hearts started on PS2. The major Kingdom Hearts games are on PlayStation. Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2, Re: Chain of Memories, and Birth By Sleep. They had to choose a console to put the HD Collection on and since the Wii U isn’t even out the right thing to do was to bring it home to the brand were it started out PlayStation on PS3. 

    They already went in to full production for Versus on PS3 September 2011 and the Wii U was shown at E3 2011 in June 2011. That is a 3 month difference I seriously don’t believe they want to waste anymore time by delaying it just bring it to the Wii U when Kingdom Hearts fan are waiting for Kingdom Hearts 3. Nintendo fans you guys have Dragon Quest X from Square, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate from Capcom, and Bayonetta 2 coming to the Wii U quit asking for more and be glad that you have these games and leave Versus alone.
