leave a comment »

Nintendo has announced that the Wii U controller will feature Near Field Communication, or NFC for short, which according to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata will allow the Wii U to do the following:

“By installing this functionality, it will become possible to create cards and figurines that can electronically read and write data via noncontact NFC and to expand the new play format in the video game world.”

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata also revealed that the Wii U will get personal user accounts similar to those seen on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This should mean that digital purchases will be linked to user accounts, rather than the actual console.

“Also for the Wii U, we are planning to introduce a personal account system compatible with Nintendo Network. With this, for example, the ease of using a video game system when the hardware is shared by multiple family members, which has been a challenge we needed to tackle, shall be improved, and we will also be able to construct and offer the system by combining a variety of different services and content.”

Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword Art Style And Story A One-Off, Wii U Zelda Will Be Different

with one comment

The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Anouma has revealed in the latest edition of Game Informer that the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword art style and the storyline will most likely be a one-off and that we will be seeing something completely different for Zelda Wii U.

“With Wind Waker, the graphics were suited to handheld gaming. Also the game ended with Link embarking on a journey, so it left open the possibility of what comes after the game. With Skyward Sword, positioning it as the first Zelda game means everything else connects to it and comes after it. It becomes a little bit difficult to do something else within that world and certainly much more difficult to do something that comes before it.”
