With Nintendo’s plethora of RPG titles in their ever impressive library, it might be wise to add another blockbuster-bound title, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Pete Hines from Bethesda has taken some time to talk with ONM UK whether or not the upcoming RPG is going wow the fans with a next generation console from Nintendo, the Wii U.
“It’s definitely a possibility for the future. We’ll look at any platform that will support that games we’re trying to make, but that’s the key thing – the console has to support the game as it is designed.”
Despite that, he muttered how much work that must be done when doing a multiplatform title.
“The more changes we have to make to a game the less and less palatable it becomes because making a game is an enormous process. Just doing 360, PS3 and PC – I don’t think people understand the amount of work that goes into that. All of the localisation you have to do… all of the testing you have to do… on every platform in every language… It’s a pretty huge undertaking.
So you aren’t just supporting the Wii U; You’re supporting it in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.” he added.
So a port to the console could be happening, but will Skyrim ever make it? Here’s what vice president of Bethesda Softworks had to conclude;
“We’ll see. It’s definitely a possibility.”
