PC PS4 Wii U 24

Dreamfall Chapters The Longest Journey Confirmed for Wii U


While Dreamfall Chapters has been in development for the PC and PS4, Nintendo was secretly working behind the scenes to get this game on Wii U. EDGE magazine has confirmed Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey, is indeed coming to Wii U. More details past the link. 

Red Thread founder and creative director, Ragnar Tornquist, told EDGE that Nintendo approached them about the game last year. Nintendo and Red Thread communicated and got a Wii U dev kit to get the game up and running on Wii U, complete with Gamepad functionality.

“Nintendo approached us last autumn, immediately after Dreamfall Chapters was announced – they were, in fact, the first console manufacturer to do so. At that point, however, we weren’t ready to make any commitments regarding engine and platforms, so we decided to wait. We got back in touch with Nintendo in late May of this year, and they were very interested in working with us.”

The studio has just received its first Wii U dev kit, and is still in the process of getting the game up and running on Wii U. It is aiming to release Dreamfall Chapters on Nintendo’s home console complete with Gamepad functionality. “So far, they’ve been very helpful and supportive, and it’s been a painless and surprisingly rapid process.”

I remember hearing some users on the internet say this game is too graphically enhanced for Wii U, and the system can’t handle it. That’s why there is a little something called optimization folks.

    Great to see that this game is coming to the Wii U. Played Dreamfall on the Xbox a while back. Loved the story. Can't wait to see what happens next.

    Yeah, but "the Wii U is totally doomed, and has not third-party support, and… um… DOOOOM!!!"

  • Now, if only certain companies and trolls would learn of the term 'optimization' even on the weakest hardware coming from people like Red Thread, FrozenByte, and many who praise the Wii U, then third-parties would be shittin' bricks because of their constant damage control in not bringing their products to the Wii U. I'm talking to you Square-Enix, Capcom, Konami, Rockstar, EA, and many who don't even give the company a chance to make a great impact on the industry. Just because you are fixated on the best hardware doesn't mean that it'll win in the next-generation. Why they haven't learned this is even beyond me.

  • Dusklurker

    That's great news!

  • PoppaNickles

    The fact that Nintendo is working hard for us, and Red Thread were willing to do it is enough for me to buy this next November. Also add in the fact that this game looks really cool.

  • *NormalGamer*

      Yeah, its becoming old news at this point. Nintendo is always filing reapplications for Eternal Darkness.

  • blessingstoall777

    Im pretty surprised how fast the haters are being exposed lol. Im wondering when will it be that they finally admit they were wrong about the WII U, if ever lol.

    • GeneralBrown178

      Their "holy" PS4 is'int looking so holy after all.

      • Liquid-Sun

        No, it isn't lol

      • revolution5268

        I though it was Xbox 720 oh im sorry xbone.

    • Lindyshutterbug

      Haters of any kind will usually never admit that they are wrong. I've seen plenty of this type of back and forth behavior between Canon and Nikon users on online forums (I'm a semi-pro photog). It is amazing what lengths people will go to to "justify" their purchase. At the end of the day, the specs of the gaming/camera system is not important, going out and having fun (taking pics, playing games) is the most important.

    Be right back, I have to go to a thread and mock people with it because they called me crazy.

    • Furious Francis

      Hey Titan64, link the thread in this comments section

      • Maestro

        Ha Ha indeed, it could give us a smile 😛

        • Titan64

          Unfortunately, as soon as I posted the article, the mods instantly deleted it and gave me an infraction because it would cause "drama".

          • Maestro

            Meeeeeeeh…. What an idiot 😛
