Shin’en Multimedia’s Manfred Linzner was recently interviewed by SuperPhillip. During the interview, Linzner revealed that Shin’en Multimedia is almost finished developing a new game for Wii U. Linzner is impressed with the Wii U console and claims that it’s very easy to develop for. According to Linzner, compared to other current generation platforms, the Wii U does not have many limitations. Lizner also revealed that Nintendo doesn’t really put restrictions on developers who bring their content to the eShop.
“We have a few Wii U devkits since quite some time. We even almost finished our first Wii U game. The kits exceeded our expectations in every way and we still learn how to get the best performance out of it. A good thing about Wii U is that it’s very easy to develop for. You don’t have so many limitations like on the other current gen platforms. For us the Wii U is the perfect platform with enough horsepower for many years to come. I think we currently only tapped 20% of its potential and our first game already looks and plays brilliant.”
“Digital is of course the future. We love that Nintendo doesn’t really put restrictions on the developers what they want to do in the eShop. For us as a small developer it’s like a dream come true to be able to design whatever we want and to bring it quickly to the players.”
