As we’re getting closer to the full Wii U unveiling, Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata revealed to investors that the Wii U controller will include an NFC chip — a Near Field Communications chip. The NFC chip is used in such places like cell phones in order to communicate with other nearby devices that have the same technology. The NFC technology could bring new gameplay possibilities to the Wii U, as NFC chips are relatively cheap to produce and can be included into many items, playing cards, etc.
The Wii U NFC chip can be utilized in a variety of ways, and since the NFC chips are pretty cheap to implement into almost any electronic device, it’s easy to see the Wii U use the NFC technology to communicate with the likes of mobile phones, tablets, etc.
