It seems that Silicon Knights has confirmed to be a licensed Wii U developer. The Canadian Studio has seen better days with layoffs and not much in the way of game development over the last few years. However recent comments seem to suggest that not only are Silicon Knights going to be releasing games (maybe just a game) on the Wii U in the future, but there is a strong possibility that it could be Eternal Darkness 2.
"I don't think it (Eternal Darkness II) is too much to ask. Certainly we love Eternal Darkness. It's a project that's near and dear to our hearts." -
Since Nintendo directly owns the Eternal Darkness name, it would be a safe bet that any sequels will only be released on Nintendo systems. So the question remains, since it is highly possible that this game will get released on the Wii U, how would Nintendo market it? The first game sold less than 400k and was considered a sales failure despite being an extremely high rated game. Nintendo could released an HD Gamecube download of the first game for a very small price to coincide with a pending release of Eternal Darkness 2 to get the word out and give gamers a chance to play the first game. A commercial or two wouldn't hurt either....
