Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 isn’t coming to Wii U due to a lack of resources, according to Konami producer Dave Cox.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Cox said, “The reason why we are developing it on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is simply because that’s the amount of people we got.

“If we want to do a Wii U conversion, that’s another 20 people. We just don’t have the resources or the budget to do it. It’s not to say we wouldn’t do it, it’s to say at this point we don’t want to lose focus on what we’re doing.

“We’ve got a certain way down the line, and it would be a distraction to have to do a port to another system at this point.”

Bad times, seeing as Castlevania has largely existed as a regular series on Nintendo formats.
