Wii U processor criticised by 'Metro: Last Light' developer

The Wii U's processor has been criticised by Metro: Last Light developer 4A Games.

Describing the processor as "horrible" and "slow", 4A's Oles Shishkovtsov said that the technical limitations were the main reason that the Wii U port was cancelled.

Meanwhile, 4A's Huw Beynon told Now Gamer that a Wii U port might be possible in the future, but didn't make sense at this point in time.

"We had an early look at it, we thought we could probably do it, but in terms of the impact we would make on the overall quality of the game - potentially to its detriment - we just figured it wasn't worth pursuing at this time," he explained.

"It's something we might return to. I really couldn't make any promises, though."

Announced last year, Metro: Last Light is a sequel to Metro 2033. It has its own original story, but has the blessing of series author Dmitry Glukhovsky.

The follow-up will see the return of the original's bullet currency system.

Metro: Last Light will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in March, 2013.
