According to a new set of rumors — and there have been plenty of those lately — Nintendo will introduce an app store for the Wii U. This would be a big deal, especially considering the possibilities with the Wii U Tablet controller, and the apps developers could make for the device. However, taking into account Nintendo’s lack of commitment to online multiplayer and online in general, we’ll have to wait and see how the Wii app store pans out.
A Wii U app store seems like an obvious choice for the new console, considering how app stores on mobile devices are taking off. There aren’t many details about the Wii U app store, but we can imagine it’ll support smaller games, productivity apps, and perhaps media app as well.
