Speaking in an interview with Joystiq, the President of Gearbox Software Randy Pitchford has discussed a huge amount of details about his company's upcoming game, Aliens: Colonial Marines. More importantly, when asked about the Wii U version, Pitchford revealed why his team is so excited for this release in particular.
Pitchford explained, "This is the best controller Nintendo's ever made for making an FPS. This is the best controller Nintendo has ever given us for playing hardcore games." While we know that the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines will have a lot to offer, Pitchford stated that Wii U is "perfect for Aliens".
He also complimented Nintendo's commitment to the touch-screen cause. Pitchford explained, "With the Wii U they (Nintendo) committed themselves to this promise. So the link is direct, fast and immediate. Things like SmartGlass and Vita, they appreciate the value of the promise so they're making the promise. But they're not in with such commitment".
With similar praise from Ubisoft earlier this year, it's clear that the Wii U's innovation has changed the ways developers are thinking about their games. Aliens: Colonial Marines is slated for release on Wii U in 2013.
