Rumour: Retro working on a Wii U engine, got Epic to reconsider UE4 for the Wii U

Over at GenGame, there is a rumour that claims that Retro is creating a game engine for the Wii U and “helping other devs implement” it. Supposedly, this involves both internal and external projects. The more interesting bit is that Retro apparently showed what they could do with the Wii U to Epic Games and got them to reconsider bringing Unreal Engine 4 to the system.

Even if this turns out to not be true, I still look forward to Retro’s Wii U game.

The pictures above show Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Donkey Kong Country: Returns emulated in HD on the Dolphin emulator. If Retro was able to make games that looked this good on the Wii, I can’t even begin to imagine what they could do on the Wii U!
