Unreal Engine 3 on the Wii? Maybe!

Anyone remember when Ubisoft ported Unreal Engine 2 to the Wii for Red Steel? That worked out pretty well, right? Right … ? Speaking to Kikizo, Epic’s Mark Rein confirms that someone, somewhere, is actually trying to port Unreal Engine 3 to Nintendo’s console.

“I know one of our licensee who’s giving it a shot,” Rein said of the mystery developer. “It’s their own port, in the same way Ubisoft brought Unreal Engine 2 to the Wii.”

Anyone want to take a guess as to which licensee Rein might be talking about? And better yet, someone answer this doozy of a question: Why bother?
