Wii U: Nintendo hoping third parties will be “open to hearing suggestions”

Posted By | On 09th, Aug. 2011

Wii Sports designer Katsuya Eguchi said in an interview with Edge that Nintendo, unlike so many previous years, is hoping to see a lot of third party support for the Wii U. He says Nintendo will provide them with technical support and also ideas on how to make games for the Wii U hardware, but he hoped the third parties are open to hearing Nintendo out and what they suggest.

Of course we’ll support them technically, giving any development assistance they require, but each third party has their proven franchises – the franchises that have done really well for them,” Eguchi said.

“I’m hoping they’ll be open to hearing suggestions – ideas from Nintendo on how to really take advantage of the Wii U’s features and offer the public maybe a different spin on those already proven franchises.”

Eguchi said that Nintendo itself is looking at Wii U in a different light than how they saw their consoles previously. “Of course, with those fan-favourite IPs, we’ll continue to offer games based on those characters, in those worlds, with the Wii U. but if there are opportunities for us to come up with new iPs that work well with this new system we’ll jump on those as well.”

evelopers and publishers like EpicUbisoft and EA have already expressed their interest in the Wii U. Others like BioWare are not so confident right now.
