Nintendo in-house developers are currently getting more and more used to developing for their HD home console, and promise that the next wave of titles are becoming more advanced than what we’ve currently seen from the company. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata also reiterated that the home consoles of other companies are six or seven years old and software developers have sufficiently studied them and know how to take full advantage of them well. The same will eventually apply to Wii U.
“For Wii U, such a time finally came in the latter half of last year. In this sense, we could not avoid the trial and error stage to create games which take full advantage of the hardware. I think that this is true for third-party software developers as well as Nintendo’s. The home consoles of other companies are six or seven years old and software developers have sufficiently studied them and know how to take full advantage of them well. As Wii U is new to them, some developers have already acquired the knack and made good use of its features and others have not.
“You might see this gap among the games that are currently available. However, we are not much concerned about this problem because time will eventually solve it. Actually, we believe that our in-house development teams have almost reached the next stage.”
