There is bad news for Wii U owners concerning Project Cars; if they were hoping to get the Wii U version of this immensely popular racing game very soon, then they?d have to wait a bit longer.
According to reliable sources, this version of the racing simulator game is facing quite a few development issues, some of which are very serious.
As a matter of fact, one of the biggest problems is that the game is able to run at only 23fps on the Wii U, whereas it performs pretty well on other consoles.
Ian Bell, the head of Slightly Mad Studios, which has developed this game admitted that all was not well with the Wii U version of Project Cars and that there were quite a few crucial factors at play here.
Even taking the performance to 30fps would be a tough task for the development team and it will certainly take a lot of time.
Even if they are able to take it to 30fps, it might come at the cost of image quality. This is absolutely unacceptable considering that it currently offers a reasonable resolution at 720p.
Ever since its release a short while ago, Project Cars has raced to the top of the charts and users of PCs, XboxOne and PlayStation 4 have been giving the game rave reviews.
The game has also been great for business and Bandai Namco has been very happy to have a winner on its hands (the last time this company had such a successful game was when Ridge Racer 4 was released approximately 15 years ago).
Wii U owners are no doubt missing out on a very good game because it offers racing simulation like no other game.
It is amazingly realistic and veteran video gamers have nothing, but positive things to say about it.
The game is remarkably easy to play if one is a novice, given how sophisticated it looks and feels.
It features an amazing line up of cars from different parts of the world in keeping with the global nature of the audience.
Users can choose from a wide range of vehicles ranging from the Aston Martin Rapide S Hydrogen Hybrid to the Lotus 49 Cosworth or the Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.8 AMG, to name a few.
There is a very good chance that Slightly Mad Studios has taken a decision to not throw resources behind the Wii U because it would rather wait for Nintendo?s next generation console, the NX.
Nintendo had released a statement in March that it was working on the new console, but there is no news on when it will hit the markets.
Slightly Mad Studios would definitely prefer to save money by bypassing the Wii U and going straight for the NX.
Bell is very coy about the fact that he doesn?t know about Nintendo?s plans, but he certainly seems to have taken them into account when it comes to Project Cars.
Till then, Wii U owners will have to make other plans if they don?t want to wait!
