Wii U Won't Get Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition


Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition won't be coming to Wii U, according to the games distributor Beamdog.

Trent Oster, founder of Beamdog, wrote on Twitter, "We don't do Nintendo development. Our previous experience with Nintendo was enough to ensure there will not be another."

The story is too old to be commented.

Nintendo really can't catch a break -- some people will always hate them, no matter what. Hopefully Beamdog eats crow, and the Wii U sells enough to change their tune.

Nintendo can't catch a break? What are you talking about? They've sold around 100million wii's, I think they are fine. They put themselves in the position with downloadable stuff. The policies they have are absurd compared to Steam, PSN and even XBL, which are also strict, but not nearly as bad a Nintendos.

Though Mr.Oster's rant was uncalled for. As the 3DS proves; Nintendo has learned from their mistakes (in relation to their online policies), and are willing adapt to 3rd party practices.

He basically said that they'll, "never release software on a Nintendo console again (keep in mind that they're developing software for ios devices)."

That's a little extreme, don't ya think?

Again are we talking about a AAA game.... Yeah who cares!

I bet you think cod is AAA quality..
AAA doesn't = fun game.

You are the typical console gamer victim of AAA marketing..

Psychonauts isn't called AAA but hey I like it!

2EHO2428d ago

Oh you talking out the gamer who has a wii and won't be playing a cod or battlefield game until the wii u gets one. Seriously no one really cares about this developer their games aren't going to make or break a system if it's not on it. You should stop trying to judge me when you know nothing!

Psychonauts is awesome & Beyond good and evil

Nintendo is learning from their mistakes and trying to improve but the older developers just don't want to learn from it.

You know I'd be lying if I said that I cared. Mario and Pikmin at E3? IM IN !!!

Kinda weird that they mentioned this specifically, given that they've already stated Beamdog isn't currently working on ANY console version.

2EHO2428d ago

Just the Nintendo hate... Oh some developers said something not positive about Nintendo... Who cares like I said if this was rockstar or someone that has real potential to break a console because their game isn't on it then I would listen.

Apparently everyone on N4G. Anything positive about Nintendo goes virtually unnoticed.
