Slightly Mad Studios Explains The Delay Of Project CARS Wii U
Slightly Mad Studios inadvertently angered the Nintendo community when they announced that the Wii U version of Project Cars has been delayed, now scheduled for release in 2015. The lack of explanation on the behalf of Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco games only fanned the flames of displeasure amongst the community.
Thankfully, Alex Tudor of Slightly Mad Studios, has went on the record and explained why the Wii U version of Project Cars was delayed. Speaking to Eurogamer, Alex Tudor, explained that the Wii U version was delayed to ensure that they reach a level of quality that matches the Xbox One, PC and PS4 version.
“There’s no conspiracy here – we announced the Wii U very early on in our development cycle, and some people think because we’ve been working on it a lot longer so it should be out now. The Xbox One version looks wicked, the PC version looks awesome, so does the PS4 version. It’s not our goal to rush the Wii U version and have it not look as good as the other ones.”
He elaborated further that the Wii U version looks “phenomenal” and its not their job to disappoint fans.
“The Nintendo fans we’ve got are crying out for a game like this. They don’t really have that experience currently, and there hasn’t really been anything like it on Wii previously. It’s not our job to disappoint those guys. So when we say the Wii U version is delayed in 2015 because we need a little more time, that’s all it is. We just want to make sure it’s of the same standard of all the other games. To do that, we just need a little more time. I’ve seen the Wii U version, I’ve seen it quite regularly. It’s got dynamic time of day, weather – it looks phenomenal. And the actual console itself is quite good.”
Regardless, how you feel about the delay, it will be interesting to see how the Wii U version of Project Cars compares to the One, PS4 and PC version of the game.
Project CARS Wii U is scheduled for release in 2015. For the latest updates, stay tuned at Mii-gamer.
