Darksiders developer Vigil Games has told Game Informer that Nintendo has been extremely supportive with Wii U development and that the system is very easy to develop for. The development studio claim that the system is much easier to develop for than Sony’s notoriously difficult PlayStation 3, and is roughly on par with Microsoft’s Xbox 360. Fantastic news for developers then.
“…You can tell the way the software is organized, the way the APRs are writen, that very shortly, it will become a pretty easy platform to develop for. Personally, I don’t really get into the what’s easier and that, but definitely from a pure programmer point of view, it’s definitely a lot easier than say the PS3 was. It’s probably on par with like the 360 as far as just ease of APIs, simplicity of how you interact with the hardware, and that sort of thing.”
