Nintendo Wii U 6

Precursor Games is Interested in Re-Releasing Eternal Darkness for the Wii U

Precursor Games has officially stated they are interested in re-releasing the original Eternal Darkness for the Wii U. 

On the companies Facebook page, Precursor had this to say about the possibility of Eternal Darkness on the Wii U.

Q: Is there any chance that while in talks with Nintendo you can bring up a possible rerelease of the GameCube’s Eternal Darkeness as a Virtual Console release? It would allow hype to build on the game and allow people who had not played before to get into the series!

A: We will definitely discuss that. Thanks for the suggestion!

Of course, having a re-release would be the easier option over a compete remake. But Nintendo still hasnt announced GameCube emulation for the Wii U. I think it would be in Nintendo’s best interest to work with these guys to get the original Eternal Darkness on the Wii U.

    how would it be possible if (Nintendo) probably has the game assets themselves? or is this about them talking to Nintendo about getting the assets to re-release it?

      Most likely contacting Nintendo to see if they would be willing to do a re-release sometime before Shadow of the Eternals launched. Nintendo owns the copyright on the game, so really Dyack and company don't really have too much say in the matter. They have a creative interest since they made it, but they don't own anything in it. They can plead their case to Nintendo, but if they aren't going to have Gamecube on the VC, it isn't going to happen.

      They could also talk to Nintendo about making an HD re-release if Shadow of the Eternals doesn't get funded in the first place. They could use the SotE engine, but make it Eternal Darkness…..if that's even possible

    This is a really really solid idea, this is something Nintendo should look into for the fans. I have to say if it does not go through I'd be dissapointed
