Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty! has been delayed for Wii U…

…and the blame seems to be on the Basic model’s rather limited 8GB memory.

Don’t look so down, there’s hope for you yet.

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty! is a remake of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, a puzzle/platformer released for the original PlayStation way back in 1997, and is being redone completely from the ground up. The original creator of the series, Lorne Lanning, is working alongside Just Add Water on the remake and has stated: If you’re going to make a Wii U game, it better run on the 8GB unit. Otherwise, it’s not really a Wii U game.”

This is certainly admirable for him to say, but it’s a shame to hear developers are having difficulty porting their games to the system and it seems the Wii U is always getting delays with multi-platform titles. How do you feel about the Oddworld series coming to Wii U? Let me know in the comments.
