Gearbox loves the Wii U. They’re bringing Aliens: Colonial Marines to the platform and, of all the developers working on games, they’re the most vocal in how much the controller can improve gameplay. Brian Martel of Gearbox has even gone as far to say that:
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.
Let’s hope that “if” morphs into a “when” one of these days.
