VG247 has received official confirmation from Nintendo regarding the Wii U and 3DS’ ability to not only communicate with each other through online play, but other devices as well.

Disney Infinity, Cubeman 2, and Pure Chess are just a few titles to incorporate such functionality. More are on the way, Nintendo says.

A representative told VG247:

“We can confirm that cross-platform functionality is possible in certain titles that play on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, as well as other video game systems not made by Nintendo. We are committed to helping developers realise the full potential of their software on Nintendo systems.

“We can confirm that Disney Infinity from Disney Interactive Studios, Cubeman 2 from Three Sprockets and Pure Chess from Ripstone, all have the ability to play on Nintendo systems while at the same time communicating with consumers using those same games on other systems. Additional games using this functionality are in development.”
