Platinum Games Might Port Metal Gear Rising to the Wii U

JP Kellams, from the staff of Platinum Games, recently said via Twitter that Platinum Games could port Metal Gear Rising to the Wii U if Konami requested a port after seeing demand.

According to Kellams, the publisher (in this case Konami) ultimately decides which consoles will get the game, not the studio. In other words, Konami could request Platinum Games to make a port of the title, but Konami would have to approve first.

Recently, Yuji Korekado of Kojima Productions all but confirmed that we wouldn’t see Metal Gear Rising on the Wii U, saying that the game wasn’t designed to be played on the Wii U GamePad, but perhaps this wasn’t as conclusive as he implied.
