hands down the most amazing excuse ive ever heard.
but to be fair theres nothing he couldve said that wouldnt have pissed off people.
better to treat it as a joke i guess

Better to tell the truth if you're going to piss people off no matter what. You've got nothing to lose. Unless this is the truth, in which case he's an idiot.

I get the feeling they wanted it to exclusive to Wii U if they wanted it on Wii U.

This is a sonic clone. Mostly jumping on things and running thur them. They should make an infinite runner game on phone also.

Why even bother with excuses? Devs should just leave making those up to the players' creative minds instead! Example:

"We're not going to release this game on Wii U, because insert politically correct excuse here"

Think they realise everyone can see it's a donkey kong contry rip off pretty much, even some of the sounds are very similar.. Still looks fun though

That... that was just plain embarrassing of him...
Seriously, who makes an excuse like that?
If he thinks it's because it'll sell better on systems that don't already have a game that feels like a DK game, then that would be reason enough, because we've got Tropical Freeze alongside quite a few indie platformers, as well.

Heck, just saying "we want to bring it to platforms that have fewer platformers of this kind and work on something different for Wii U instead", that would have gone over far better than what he's passing off as a reason here...

Interesting to see Game Freak make a new game for a non-Nintendo system. Definitely gonna try this out, hopefully it makes its way to Vita, too.
