This has got to be one of the craziest rumours about the Wii U to surface so far…
The source of the information is French website Nintendo Town, who quite frankly, I\’ve never heard of. They claim that Epic is working on a new Metroid game for the Wii U and will be running on Unreal 3.
We do know that Epic have experimented with Wii U Dev Kits, and that several third-parties are working on games which use the Unreal engine. However, they have yet to officialy announce they are working on any Wii U projects. This could be down to the gob-stopping NDAs that are currently in place.
Nintendo’s last Metroid game was a collaboration with Team Ninja, so it wouldn\’t come as a complete surprise that they have dished our their fan-favourite franchise again.
