Rayman Legends Creative Director Michel Ancel is a firm believer in near field communication and thinks that eventually the technology could be put to innovative uses. Ancel demonstrated the possibilities of the feature during an early Rayman Legends trailer, but he claims that it was just an experiment.
“We didn’t announce this officially and it was more the kind of experiment we do when working on new hardware like the Wii U. We had prototypes of this and we believe that having real objects manipulating gameplay could be quite innovative. But again, this was a prototype and we won’t discuss it until it’s ready to demonstrate its full potential.”
