Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has revealed that the legendary designer Shigeru Miyamoto is helping internal developers with upcoming Wii U titles that will fully utilize the Wii U GamePad. Iwata says that the projects, some of which are almost complete, will be showcased next month at E3. Although it won’t unveil a new version of the Wii U at the forthcoming expo, Nintendo is planning to reveal software that can only work with the console’s touch-screen controller.
“Today I only spoke about Mario Kart and Super Smash Brothers For Wii U in terms of Wii U software, however, at the E3 event to be held in June in Los Angeles we will discuss other software as well,” said Iwata. “Also, at that time, we will introduce multiple games that are designed to introduce players to the value of the Wii U Game Pad by demonstrating playstyles only possible because of it. These titles have been developed by internal teams under the guidance of Mr. Miyamoto (Board Member, General Manager of the Development Division). The software titles that we will show at E3, which make use of the Game Pad, will range from near complete titles to titles that are early in development, but will demonstrate the titles’ core appeals. We are preparing multiple software like this for the show.”
