Looks like Project Cars will be coming to the Wii U. While it hasn’t been said outright, Slightly Mad Studios, the developer behind Need for Speed: Shift, slapped a Wii U logo on its official website. It seems the game, which is being designed around community input, will be coming to PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and now Nintendo’s new system.
Project Cars has had an unusual development cycle. The tellingly named Slightly Mad Studios has been designing the game without a publisher, instead letting the gaming community take that role. Gamers can offer feedback, or contribute lines of code and venture capital to become an official investor in the project. For more information, check out the blog.
Slightly Mad plans to release early builds of the game to garner feedback. A retail release was always planned, and now it appears Nintendo’s Wii U will be part of the picture. This announcement carries weight not only because of Project Cars’ unique development cycle, but because any news surrounding the Wii U’s release line-up has been scarce. The question now arises: What kind of plastic steering wheel will Nintendo support for this title?
