Miyamoto has talked about how Nintendo is encouraging developers to make games for Wii U in an IGN interview.
It seems that Miyamoto has been meeting personally with developers to encourage them to work with Nintendo’s new console. “I am trying to meet with the game developers individually for this matter,” he says, asked how the company will be supporting other developers that want to get the best out of the hardware. “The real subject is whether I’ll be able to – we’ll be able to – convince developers inside of the licensing publishers to be excited about the new features of the Wii U, so much so that they’ll be enthused towards making brand new entertainment that I couldn’t come up with myself.”
It’s no secret to anyone that third-party developers struggled to get the most out of the Wii – almost all of the system’s truly great games came from within Nintendo’s own stables. But Miyamoto does not think that third-party developers lack the know-how to make the most out of the hardware; far from it.
