Developer Crystal Dynamics says the new Tomb Raider reboot won’t be coming to the Wii U. Nintendo has responded by saying they are thankful for this as they don’t want Wii U owners to waste their money on a terrible game.
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has responded to the denial of Tomb Raider for the Wii U saying, “The Nintendo Seal of Quality has never been denied to any game since the GameCube era. Tomb Raider would have been the first game in ten years not to receive the seal.”
“We only want quality entertainment for the Wii U,” he continues, “I have played the demo myself and have found the gameplay lackluster, the story laughable and the environments unappealing. I thank them for allowing Wii U owners to spend their money on a much better game.”
“I mean, we could use all the third-party support we can get,” he clarifies, “just not this game.”
In related news, Demetrious Johnson has said that he was miming controller actions in the Tomb Raider controller commercial as he couldn’t stand to play the game for more than 10 minutes.
