Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey
will be coming to Wii U, Red Thread Games confirmed to Edge
. The game was a resounding success on Kickstarter
, hauling in over $1.5 million in March 2013
. While the crowdfunding project didn't have a stretch goal related to Wii U development, Creative Director Ragnar Tornquist said Nintendo approached the developer in late autumn last year about porting the game to Wii U, and were the first console holder to do so.
"At that point, however, we weren't ready to make any commitments regarding engine and platforms, so we decided to wait," Tornquist said. "We got back in touch with Nintendo in late May of this year, and they were very interested in working with us."
Red Thread Games hasn't indicated when Dreamfall Chapters
will come to Wii U, but it is slated to launch on PC, Mac and Linux in November 2014.
