There are over 50 launch window games confirmed for Wii U but, apparently, none of them will use the Wii U GamePad’s NFC reader, including Rayman Legends and Skylanders Giants. Nintendo prodct manager Bill Trinen thinks developers may start implementing the feature in future Wii U projects.
“That is a new tech, particularly with it being available in the U.S. A lot of the developers are wondering what are the options? How do we leverage it? As they start to come with their ideas, solutions and great content, we will talk more about it.”
“I don’t anticipate it will be too far out.”
