Wii U

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.

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?


This information comes from Strauss Zelnick is chief executive officer of Take-Two Interactive Software…

“We’ll see. We are looking at it seriously and at the relationship with Nintendo. We have supported the Wii and it has worked for us. We have done Carnival Games for the Wii. They support the platform and they were pretty excited about what they have seen. It will not be driven by me pounding the table saying do it, it will be driven by economic opportunity and creative opportunity.”

Oh God, he mentioned Carnival Games. I don’t think that’s the type of support most of us want to see. How about Grand Theft Auto instead…?


I wouldn’t follow this list completely, as there are some questionable entries. However, it’s very, very interesting to see The Last Story scheduled for 2012. It’d be amazing if that were true. It’d also be depressing if Europe ended up receiving Xenoblade and The Last Story while North America missed out on both titles…

26 – Xenoblade Chronicles

09 – StarFox 64 3D
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2

Kirby Mass Attack
Mario Kart 3DS
Professor Layton

Kirby Wii
Zelda Skyword Sword
Super Fossil Fighters

Super Mario 3DS

Mario Party 9
Paper Mario 3DS
Luigi’s Mansion 2
Animal Crossing 3DS
Kid Icarus
Lego City Stories
The Last Story


Just as a note, I hope this isn’t the last we’ve heard of Wii U in 2010. Hopefully Iwata says something at Nintendo’s Fall conference, if there is one.

Matt Ryan from Nintendo Canada on why it seemed Nintendo focused more on hardware than games…

“While Wii U hardware was a BIG focus this year for Nintendo we also have many software titles that were emphasized at the press conference and at the show. First of all, we are celebrating The Legend of Zelda 25th anniversary and that is bringing many Zelda titles to our systems. The newest offering being The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Wii. Also, for Nintendo 3DS we have Super Mario, Mario Kart and Kid Icarus: Uprising coming this holiday. So we had a nice balance of hardware and software but we are quite aware that the Wii U announcement really excited fans the most in our booth.”

Ryan on if there is any worry that Nintendo will displace their current consumer base with a new console…

“Not at all. We anticipate that Wii U will make all types of gamers happy! Wii expanded the video game market and brought many new people into gaming, we expect Wii U to not only to continue this trend but to take it even further with what the new console has to offer.”

Reggie didn’t show anything on the Wii U other than the controller (and the console!), but I think Jimmy was happy just holding it in his hands. And those lucky audience members all received a copy of Ocarina of Time 3D.

Thanks to Smeagle for the tip!

Yet another Nintendo interview for you guys to look over. The funny thing is, the second question in this interview from GameSpot was regarding Pikmin. Shigeru Miyamoto actually revealed that he’s going to be putting the franchise on Wii U instead of Wii, but this was before his roundtable.

Miyamoto on whether there has been a philosophy or a direction that Nintendo is taking in bringing titles to the 3DS…

“Well, I’m really seeing a couple of different tendencies in 3DS software, and one is that the system itself is, I think, a great system, where games that we’ve released in the past can be remade and really take on new meaning, and there are new ways to make them fun. But on the other hand, at this point, what we’re also looking at of course is creating new installments in existing franchises. And so that’s, I think, where the system is right now.”
