Rumor: Triple-A Square Enix Game Being Ported To Wii U

The eagle-eyed gamers over at NeoGAF have discovered the LinkedIn profile of a Straight Right employee, the developer working on bringing Mass Effect 3 to the Wii U, that claims the studio is porting an unnamed “Triple-A Square Enix” game to Nintendo’s upcoming console.

The blurb on the resume (which belongs to Straight Right’s technical project manager Chris Slater) has since been removed but lives on in Google’s cache, and our screenshot at the bottom of this article. Prior to the update it read:

“Working for Straight Right on a short term contract, porting a triple-A Square Enix game to the yet-to-be-released Wii U platform.”

This should officially be considered a rumor, however, it is worth noting that most game developers don’t make it a habit to straight up lie on their resumes. With that in mind, we won’t blame you for speculating in the comments about which unnamed “triple-A” Square Enix might be headed to the Wii U.

In fact, we will help you get started by throwing out Tomb Raider, Hitman: Absolution, and Sleeping Dogs as likely candidates for a Wii U port.
