Wii U Overstrike release possible

Insomniac Games hasn’t ruled out the possibility of Wii U release for multiplayer co-op title Overstrike.

“Since we haven’t talked about a release date, I don’t know if it’s too late or not [to bring Overstrike to Wii U as well],” Insomniac leader Ted Price told IndustryGamers.

“You never know. For now, what we’re talking about though is that Overstrike is going to be out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.”

Nevertheless, the industry veteran was intrigued by the new hardware.

“I wasn’t expecting a handheld controller of that size, and I wasn’t expecting a touch screen, so I think all of us saw a lot of opportunity in terms of how we could use that second screen with an HD screen at the same time,” he said.

“All of our designers and anybody on our team, I think their first thought is, ‘How could we use this to enhance our games in some way?’

“Since every game is designed differently, there’s always a different opportunity. I don’t think, one size fits all when youre talking about a controller like that. It’s got to fit the game that you’re making.

“We continue to be surprised by how people are using Move and Kinect and it’s a nice part of one’s toolbox.”

Price has desribed Overstrike as filled with “cool weapons and gadgets“.
