Chris Remo, community manager and writer at Double Fine Productions, has told Joystiq that The Cave for Wii U will utilise the GamePad for camera and character switching. The publication says that the GamePad is simply a glorified character selector and camera controller, and that’s it. Remo also stated that the game will be pretty much identical to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.
“So other than that, it pretty much plays like all the other versions. We did work really hard to ensure that visually everything you’re seeing is identical to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, so there’s no downscaling, there’s nothing going on that is not up to par with the other next-gen systems. There’s nothing super wacky going on, but it’s a completely full-featured version of the game.”
