No Saint's Row 4 for Wii U, confirms Deep Silver

Publisher skips Nintendo console with latest over-the-top urban game

Saint's Row IV will not be coming to Wii U.


So confirmed publisher Deep Silver to Polygon today, following the release of its debut reveal trailer earlier.

The fourth installment in the series, developed by Chicago studio Volition, will launch on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in the US first on August 20th and three days later across Europe. But despite joining the HD era with the Wii U released in November last year, Nintendo players will miss out on the sequel's over-the-top frolics, which promise to mark a climactic end to the series.

The firm released the first Saints Row IV trailer today, showing much of the antics series fans will have come to expect.
