French Nintendo site NintendoTown has posted a batch of hot new Wii U rumours. First up is Metroid is currently in development and is being built using the Unreal Engine 3. A tech demo of Metroid Wii U has been shown to a few select people and the game is a joint venture between Nintendo and Retro Studios.
Another rumour, which was previously posted on AdWeek a few months back, is that Nintendo is in talks with various media companies in an effort to secure Video on Demand titles. The rumour itself implies that there will be a built-in application on the console’s dashboard similar to those on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The last rumour, which is possibly the hardest to believe, is Nintendo has Google Android running as the operating system for Wii U. This clearly sounds far-fetched but stranger things have happened. We should find out for sure about all these rumours at E3.
