Mercenaries port 'feels wrong' on Nintendo's console, according to Pandemic.
Upcoming open world action game Mercenaries 2 would be a "tough fit" for the Nintendo Wii, according to developer Pandemic.
Speaking to VideoGamer.com at an EA Games label event in London recently, Pandemic's Cory Lewis said that porting it over to Nintendo's motion sensing console "feels wrong".
"I think the Wii would be a tough fit for that product," Lewis told VideoGamer.com. "Not to say it won't ever happen. But just porting it over to the Wii feels wrong. I know the guys, the senior leaders at Pandemic, like Josh (Resnick) and Greg (Borrud) and Andrew (Goldman), they're very committed to when we come out with a Wii product it's going to be created for the Wii. It's going to really take advantage of what it offers, not just grabbing this and throwing it over there kind of thing."
The first Mercenaries game, Playground of Destruction, was released on Xbox and PS2 only and the follow up, World in Flames, has been announced for Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and PC. According to Lewis' comments, if Wii owners are to see a Mercenaries game in the future, it would probably be a version of the game made specifically for the platform.
