Yet another big publisher is steering clear of the Wii U

You won’t be performing Dragon Shouts on your Wii U anytime soon. Joystiq reports that Bethesda, the developer behind smash-hit games such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 3, has no plans to release any games for Nintendo’s newest console at the moment and all of its announced upcoming games will release only for the PC, the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One. This isn’t as big a deal for Nintendo as you might think because neither Skyrim nor Fallout 3 ever released on the original Wii. All the same, Nintendo could really use a lot more help from developers on the Wii U, especially since game publishing giant EA has announced it has no plans to bring its next generation of games to the console.
