Straight Right (Mass Effect 3 Wii U) porting AAA Square-Enix game to Wii U

Edit: Thanks for bringing up the quote Nirolak. :)

"We've made a few bets on Wii U actually so we're certainly hoping it does well. In addition to ME3 we have an original Wii U title in development, and we've started on another big game in a well known franchise that will be released in 2013." - CEO Tom Crago

Technical Project Manager
StraightRight

June 2012 – Present (5 months) Melbourne Area, Australia

Working for Straight Right on a short term contract, porting a triple-A Square Enix game to the yet-to-be-released Wii U platform.

Responsibilities included:

* Editing and completing Project Management documentation (TDD and Risk Analysis)
* Producing Project Plan documentation
* Task allocation and resource balancing
* Resource integration (as the team grew from 2 developers to 5 developers, one designer and one artist)
* Producing Weekly Progress Reports for stakeholders
* Compiling deliverables and deliverable documentation for a prototype
* Liaising with project sponsors
* Risk Management
Place your bets, the winner gets absolutely nothing!

Sleeping Dogs? Tomb Raider? Surely it ain't a SE JP game.

Edit: 2012 and beyond SE games not from JP (correct me if wrong):

Deus EX: Human Revolution
Sleeping Dogs
Hitman Absolution
Tomb Raider

From go nintendo.

Presumably Tomb Raider then unless it's a late port.

Wastes hours checking old Famitsu software data, but that's why we love him.

Yah that sounds like Tomb Raider.

Well, i'm hoping for FFXIV, with cross platform play. I'd like to be able to play it in bed.

But, then that would involve it linking up with the PS3 version, so unlikely.

Yeah, I'm thinking it's one of three things:

Hitman: Absolution
Sleeping Dogs
Tomb Raider

Deus Ex and anything else older than that is just too old... and while technically I guess Arkham Asylum counts I'd think we'd have heard of that with Arkham City (and it'd be WB now anyway).

Surprised that Square didn't choose Nixxes to do this (assuming that it's TR). They're usually the go to developer when it comes to porting Crystal Dynamics titles.

Truth be told, the UPad would actually really "augment" the game...

I still feel bad for these guys. Porting ME3 when there is a trilogy coming...

I hope this is a project that will actually hit on time, and not way after the "initial" game has been released.

Yeah, to be honest Deus Ex would actually be the most exciting, but since it's also the least likely of actual AAA games I definitely don't expect it.
Can I be really boring and guess dragon quest 10
They're probably working on it internally, or at least not with a western studio. I'm expecting "Eidos" stuff here.

EDIT: Put in the opposite of what I wanted to!
