Nintendo's US boss hopes to see GTA on Wii U

Aims to create an environment which convinces Rockstar to bring its best content to the console

Nintendo of America president Fils-Aime has indicated he's hopeful of seeing Rockstar release Grand Theft Auto V on Wii U.

The GTA V release date will fall in spring 2013 on PS3 and Xbox 360, and asked this week about the possibility of a GTA game coming to Nintendo's new console, Fils-Aime told MTV: "The folks there have said very nice public comments about the Wii U.

"In the end, it is Nintendo's responsibility to have a large installed base, to have development tools that help the developers and publishers create great content, and essentially create an environment where teams like Rockstar can bring their very best content to our platform, and if we do that hopefully the very best content throughout the entire industry will show up on Wii U."

Questioned recently about the possibility of GTA V appearing on PC and Wii U, Rockstar vice president Dan Houser said everything "is up for consideration".

He added: "The main thing is we are not... we are a third-party publisher. We're not Nintendo, we're not Sony, we're not Microsoft. We love all of them in different ways. But we can do what we want wherever there's the appropriate business opportunity and chance to find a market."
