Earlier this week Nintendo announced that Project Giant Robot for the Wii U has been cancelled. The developer speaking to Polygon.com said that the decision came after reviewing the product and development strategy. The game which was revealed during E3 2014 was one of several Wii U projects being directed by Shigeru Miyamoto. The game centered on controlling a giant robot in a city using the Wii U GamePad. Players would fight enemies and knock-over buildings while tearing through a city using a giant robot.The games cancellation doesn’t come as a surprise. Since the E3 announcement there has been very little updates on the games development progress or release details. Considering the Switch is just around the corner it wasn’t very likely that Project Giant Robot wouldever see a release.

So this news also makes The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild the last game to be published/released for the Wii U. There may be a chance the game gets some type of port to the Switch. Nintendo’s new brawler/fighting game called ARMS incorporates bashing, tossing and pummeling your opponents using extendable arms and the Switch Joy-Con controllers. These control setups seem almost perfect for Project Giant Robot on the Switch. Come on Miyamoto, we’re counting on you!
