Cross-Platform Development Just Got Easier for Licensed Wii Developers

SOPHIA-ANTIPOLIS, France – April 6, 2010 – Stonetrip, a leading 3D engine company for games and 3D applications, today announced that it has received certification from Nintendo to offer its cross-platform 3D development engine, ShiVa 3D, to licensed Wii developers. The ShiVa 3D engine already supports Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, iPhone, iPad, Android, Wii, and browser-based applications under a single license, and has been used in thousands of applications and hundreds of games released to date.

“The Wii is a very appealing platform for game developers, offering the largest install base of the next-generation platforms, and the technological capabilities to support games that appeal to the mass market,” said Philip Belhassen, CEO of Stonetrip. “By adding support for Wii, we are expanding the cross-platform opportunities available to developers using the ShiVa 3D engine. We will continue to develop and add tools and technology that make the development process easier, so game developers can unleash their creativity without having to focus as much on the technological aspects of making games.”


The following information comes from the Capcom-Unity message boards…

Capcom’s Christian Svensson on future Wii/DS titles…

“We do have more Wii and DS titles in development that are not yet announced. Stay tuned.”

Svensson on Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars sales figures,

“Without giving numbers. TvC I’m pleased with. MvC2 I’m extremely happy with. Beyond that, nothing to talk about right now. We don’t have Wii rights from Marvel but all the same I had toyed with that idea. Unfortunately, the economics don’t work. We’d have to sell it at a significantly higher price at retail on Wii. Break even on the expected costs and lower margins are higher than the volume I’d reasonably expect to sell.”

Svensson on PS2 to Wii ports…

“Sorry, there’s no current plans for any PS2 to Wii ports.”

Capcom’s Seth Killian on bringing Super Street Fighter IV/Street Fighter IV to Wii…

“Sorry guys, no plans for SFIV or SSFIV on the Wii right now.”
