Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has spoken out about his hopes for seeing Grand Theft Auto V arrive on the Wii U.

Though Rockstar's game is currently only slated for release on Xbox 360 and PS3 in Spring 2013, Fils-Aime revealed to MTV the he believes there's every chance the game will come to Nintendo's console.

"The folks there have said very nice public comments about the Wii U," he explained.

"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."

When we recently interviewed Rockstar vice president Dan Houser, he revealed that the company hadn't made any firm decisions about other potential platforms, but wouldn't rule anything out.

"Everything else is up for consideration," Houser revealed. "That's all I can give you. 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."

We've already had a muse about whether the game would be coming to PC, and came to the conclusion that it likely will though not for a some time after its console debut.

Last week was IGN's GTA V week, where we offered a massive blowout of information about the upcoming game. So whether you're looking for how the title changes the rules for open world games, want to meet the new faces or just rediscover Los Santos, make sure you have a look at all our articles.

We'll see how this plays out but interesting that Reggie is openly talking about what games Nintendo wants to get on the Wii-U. This wouldn't be the first time a GTA title has appeared on a Nintendo platform but this would be the first major release to hit a Nintendo platform... if Rockstar decides to bring it over.

Personally I'm still wondering where the hell the PC announcement is.

Thoughts?

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars - Nintendo DS did some pretty cool things with the DS touch screen. I'd like to see what R* could do with the Wii-Pad

I actually though Chinatown Wars felt more like a GTA game than Grand Theft 4 did (Niko's story). Some of the touch screen stuff was typical but other things played into the game mechanics very well. I also really enjoyed the drug trafficking system in the game as well. Wasted so much time just moving product all over the city to make some serious cash.

This is like the only time that I would agree with Reggie.

On a torrent site...?

Nintendo has been doing quite a bit to bring third party developers on board with the Wii-U. I know Miyamoto himself was meeting with developers to discuss what they wanted from their next console and what it would take bring them into the fold. Going to be interesting to see how this plays out over the next year or so and if this efforts are going to pay off.

@ Xavier 7

Kind of hard for something to be on a torrent which doesn't exist.

Keep dreaming Nintendo :P

Seriously though, GTA would be a great gain for the Wii U. Im actually considering getting a Wii U. I really like the Batman: Arkham City Trailer.

Well, it would probably make Manhunt 3 pretty awesome.
