Darksiders 2 director ponders straight port to new Nintendo console
Nintendo’s next generation console will perform at a level similar to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, according to a game director at Texas studio Vigil Games.
Marvin Donald said the studio was able to port its current project, Darksiders 2, to Wii U development kits with relative ease.
“So far the [Wii U] hardware’s been on par with what we have with the current generations,” he told Game Reactor.
“Based on what I understand, the resolution and textures and polycounts and all that stuff, we’re not going to being doing anything to up-res the game, but we’ll take advantage of the controller for sure.”
An independent studio source previously told Develop that the Wii U performs about twice as fast as the Xbox 360, though none of the console’s details have been confirmed. A separate report suggested its performance was many times greater than current-gen.
