Developers banned from talking about Wii U specific features until E3
There’s a big reason why we haven’t seen many Wii U videos, screenshots, and other media from some of the many games that have been announced for the system. Nintendo has made all developer sign an NDA agreement not to talk about Wii U specific features for their games until E3, something Darksiders 2 developer Vigil Games confirmed recently. Speaking to Vooks, Vigil’s Jeremy Greiner says that “Nintendo’s put a full gag on everything until E3″. However, he did confirm that Darksiders 2 would use Wii U specific features, such as the new tablet controller. Greiner added, “speaking to specific features or tech effects, that’s in Nintendo’s playground right now. I know that they have plans for E3″.
Nintendo’s strict control of what gets out (nothing, in that sense), and the lack of concrete details on the console and games at this point all points in one direction: Nintendo has big plans for E3. Vigil Games has previously commented on the Wii U console, saying it’s just as powerful as the current gen systems. Darksiders 2 will be released shortly on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and will be a Wii U launch title later this Fall. For more titles, check out our full Wii U games list.
