Alex Ward, Criterion Games Vice President, has once again explained just how excited he is about Nintendo’s latest console, Wii U. Ward says that future Need for Speed titles should be released simultaneously on Wii U along with the other platforms now that the developers are more acquainted with the hardware. He concluded the interview by saying that the Wii U has got him back into Nintendo platforms.
“We’ll see how the online audience on the Wii U is going to develop. I think for a lot of consumers out of the box, it’ll be that around-the-TV experience that Nintendo tends to do very, very well.”
Future iterations of Need for Speed on Wii U should see a same-day release as the other consoles, Ward told me, since the studio now knows the hardware. “Fantastic hardware [the Wii U], I love it. It really got me back into Nintendo software.
Thanks, Mike S
