Ambient Studios thinks Death Inc. “would be a great fit” on Wii U, and the studio has already sent its application to be a registered developer off to Nintendo.

Speaking with Nintendo Life, the studio’s director and co-founder Jonny Hopper said that while Ambient hadn’t thought about developing Death Inc. for Wii U before launching its Kickstarter, “there’s been this support for the idea.”

“Actually I think Death Inc. would be a great fit,” he said. “The control mechanic is very tactile and satisfying – it would be perfect for any touch screen device. And even better for the Wii U because we wouldn’t have to compromise on the visuals like we might have to do if we did a tablet version.

“I love, love, love the “living room” experience of playing games — it’s my favorite setting, so it would be amazing to see it there.”

For the moment, though, the game’s only down for PC and Mac, but that could change once the Kickstarter ball starts rolling faster. You never know.

Death Inc. is slated for an autumn release, and the Kickstarter has 19 days left to reach its £300,000 goal.
