Wii U

Miyamoto on whether you can take the controller to a bedroom and play it there…

“Without going into the whether or not it is physically possible to use the device throughout your house, the device is designed for you to have your Wii U controller and television in the same room. They are designed to interact with one another.”

Nintendo software producer and director Katsuya Eguchi on why Nintendo is keeping the basic Mii design from Wii to Wii U…

“Actually, the Miis that will be used on the Wii U are going to be the same as the ones on the 3DS. On the 3DS we tweaked [the design] a little bit. We added some features, and the Mii editor that’s on the 3DS is different from the one that’s on the Wii. Ultimately we’ll use those same Miis on the Wii U. Right now it looks the same as the ones on the Wii because we don’t have the ability to create Miis in the Wii U yet.”

I really feel like Skyward Sword is getting snubbed. Sure, perhaps it wasn’t the best game of E3, but no one is really acknowledging it or anything. I wasn’t at the trade show, though Austin seemed to greatly enjoy the game and the footage I saw had me impressed!

Miyamoto on the Wii U controller and how he doesn’t believe it’s changing what worked in the past…

“Well, we still have the Wii Remotes compatible with our new system, so I think in terms of play styles I think you still have the options you had in the past. I think one of the benefits of having the new controller with the screen is that you could play an entire game on it while someone else is doing something on the television. Of course, you could use the touch screen for simple things like drawing pictures or using it for something like an FPS, leveraging the screen as well as the buttons in a new way. You could also use it in a Zelda game, with a map and items on the bottom screen.”

According to Satoru Iwata, Nintendo started thinking about a second screen for the Wii U as early as 2007. But the company originally thought about making the screen separate from the controller. Also, it was quite a bit smaller since LCDs costed much more back in 2007.

“Considering how expensive screens were then, it did not make sense to have this big-sized LCD. We would not have been able to come up with a reasonable price point. … We had not decided when we were going to launch the new console [at that point], but we knew we needed to be flexible.”

Thanks to Dan P for the tip!

Nothing like a little controversy to kick off the work-week! I have been so busy lately, it’s ridiculous, so I’m sorry that I don’t seem as focused as I normally do during videos.

Enjoy!

This information comes from Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono, who was asked if Street Fighter x Tekken will be brought to iPads, iPhones, or even the Wii U…

“Well, we’ve already gotten started with PlayStation Vita version, of course, but we’re anxious to take on all sorts of other platforms if the opportunity arises. It could be an iPhone thing, it could be an Android thing. It’s still too early to say, but we’ll take any chance we have to get this game in as many hands as possible. We know the hardcore users are the center of it all, but we think there’s a layer of psuedo-casual fighting game as well. We really want to push the idea that you can play anywhere with any kind of skill level, that it’s everyone’s game. One way to do that is to expand into platforms that cater a little more towards the average person.”

Street Fighter IV was originally released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Eventually, it ended up being a launch title for the 3DS. Might we see a similar situation with Street Fighter x Tekken and the Wii U?
