Ubisoft’s Guillaume Brunier, the producer behind ZombiU, believes that the touchscreen interface of Wii U could make the console more popular than the original Wii console. Brunier reiterated that no one quite foresaw just how big the Wii would become, and he thinks that the same could apply to Wii U.
“When they released the Wii a few years ago, I don’t think developers–and Nintendo–anticipated how big it would become. I think this is going to be the case with the Wii U too. Touchscreen interfaces are so common to everyone right now, that having this as part of a gaming platform is really going to get Wii U further than Wii got.”
