Gearbox software will bring Aliens: Colonial Marines to the Wii U but has no similar plans for Borderlands 2. As it turns out, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford had a very specific reason to port games to the systems that he did.
"We get asked if there is going to be a Wii U version of Borderlands," said Pitchford to GamesMaster. "The reason why there's not is because we couldn't think of a natural, obvious, 'OMG, I want that for what the Wii U brings to the table' feature. But with Aliens, the first thing we thought was 'holy s***, I can have a motion controller in my hands!' When it's there in my lap it feels like I'm part of the movie."
