Tomb Raider will not be coming to the Wii U because Crystal Dynamics want to uniform the experience on all platforms, according to Creative Director Noah Hughes. In an interview with True Gaming, Hughes explains why Nintendo won't be getting any Lara love this time around.

"I'm always a fan of the Nintendo systems, that in particular they really push interface design. And from a game design perspective it's fun to play with new interfaces. Having said that, it's something that I think we would want to tailor the experience to if we were going to do it, and currently we're offering it on PlayStation 3, Xbox and PC.

"All three of those are really trying to deliver roughly the same experience but delivered best on each platform, and I think something like the Wii U often asks you to do something unique based on a unique interface."
