There has been a lot of talks regarding connectivity options between Wii U and 3DS for sometime now. Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto has shown interest in achieving the same. At a personal level I hope they don’t go the Sony way since the PS3-Vita connection is just present for name’s sake.
“Of course we are thinking of the possibility of connecting Wii U and Nintendo 3DS once again,” Miyamoto said. “[But] we have challenged connectivity on many occasions, and one of the great lessons we have learned is the simple fact that those who own both are much fewer than those who don’t own both. So what we decided early on when considering the Wii U design was that we had to make it so that every single purchaser of the Wii U is going to have the same play conditions, the same equipment,” he said to IGN.
“If we are going to do that with Wii U and 3DS, there would be three screens to consider. The reason why we were not so eager to do a similar thing between Wii and DS if that it would have become very complicated using two screens on the DS and one screen on the Wii. But of course we are trying to think about a way to expand the experience of 3DS and Wii U when they are connected with each other, one way or the other.”
It will be interesting to see what Nintendo comes up with. May be the supposed new Zelda game will include this connectivity? Time will tell.
