Reggie Wants GTA V on Wii U

Well besides the exclusive Bayonetta 2 release and Pikmin 3, Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime expressed that he would like to see GTA V coming to the Wii U. This is what he had to say..

Well who wouldn't want one of the biggest selling and well reviewed franchise to appear on the Wii U or any console. I think what Nintendo need to do is increase the install base enough to warrant Rockstar to want to put the time and money into porting it. If done in a reasonable time period then GTA V will no doubt appear on the Wii U

It has to be released at the same time as the PS3/360 version or at least announced before the release and released at the same time as the PC version. To sway customers from buying it on one of the other consoles.

My opinion and only time will tell.

That makes absolute sense, ports need to be released within the right time period

"does any have proof to say otherwise on why this would be impossible?"

Nope. Welcome to N4G.:)

Seriously though, Nintendo should bag a GTA game in some way or another. Some developers have said that it's fast and fairly cheap to port games to the Wii U, so Rockstar wouldn't need to sell many copies to profit.

Chinatown Wars sold 1M on DS, so there's obviously a market on Nintendo for GTA.

"does any have proof to say otherwise on why this would be impossible?" We'll yes it's called common sense. You really expect Rockstar to spend the money and time creating a new world or story just for a new platform. It's different for a DS game and a console game in cost. The set pieces would have to re done which would cost a fortune and would take a while. What you said is really wishful think that will never happen

Truly, if Nintendo want to be way up there! Just release a Pokemon RPG with online features on the WII U like we always have dreamt.

With the Pokédex on the controller screen! (and battle UIs and whatever other awesomesauce)

If a Wii U came out at the same time as the PS3/Xbox 360 versions, or at within that release window, I don't see why not. I see great potential and use for a map on the GamePad's display! Plus, GTA V available for all three consoles is a plus for everyone! We all know that the Wii U CAN suppose the game. I say it should happen! :D

Then starting paying some cash if you want it early instead of waiting for rockstar to make the move.

What a coincidence, so do I.
You know, Reggie, looks like we've got a lot in common.
Another N4G article already mentions something about GTA V on WiiU and PC right off the bat.
Come on Reggie, push those devilish good looks of yours and sway the vote your way.

I bet he does.

He'll need every third party game Nintendo can muster. Especially given the mediocrity of their last bet with ZombiU...

Man... I want word on Agent. Whether it's in development or not.
