Gearbox: Borderlands 2 on Wii U “would just be fantastic”

Borderlands 2 on Wii U “would just be fantastic” according to developer Gearbox Software, although such a decision remains to be left to publisher 2k Games.

“We really like the Wii U,” shared Brian Martel, Gearbox Software’s co-founder and Chief Creative Officer. “I think it’s a really cool platform. I like what they’re doing – obviously with the touchscreen – and it will be interesting to see what Microsoft do with their approach to that idea. It’s one of those problems of the Wii: the only people who have ever made a lot of money on the Wii is Nintendo.

“So we’re really excited to bring Aliens: Colonial Marines to it. And we’re going to do a wait and see approach, our publisher 2K is going to see whether they’re going to go with that.”

If Borderlands 2 was to ever grace the Wii U, Martel sees plenty of suitability to the game from the console’s unique GamePad.

“If Borderlands 2 was on the Wii U, the thing I would be most excited about is inventory management: it would be amazing on that, it would just be fantastic. And I think the artwork would look really good, with the way they can deal with the resolutions and textures, I think it’s a really good console.”

Please let it happen…!
