Creative director Andy Tudor over at Slightly Mad had the following to say in regards to the Project CARS title currently in development at his studio.
“The Wii U is more than capable of providing the core Project CARS experience.
Sure, some super-high-level graphical effects may not be possible but in comparison it also offers a unique interaction experience via the GamePad controller, with the second screen potentially becoming your track map overview, rear-view mirror, telemetry, or simply mimicking a real race car steering wheel whilst you use the gyroscope to drive.
Plus there are great possibilities to extend our existing WMD community into the Mii Community with discussion and sharing of content and ideas. There’s no realistic racing game on the Wii U currently yet, and we hear the fans crying out for one.
Project CARS provides a Forza or Gran Turismo-like experience for those gamers and it’ll be something to really show off what the system is capable of. From our internal playing, it’s looking extremely promising.”
Well, thats definitely some positive things being said in terms of the Wii U’s graphical capability as well as the innovation that this system has brought with it.
Andy Tudor seems to be honest about the Wii U and its graphical limitations, as well as highlighting the potential of the second screen, which is something we’ve all been dying to see used creatively in more games!
For those who don’t know much about this game, it’s definitely worth checking out (in 720p) the following video:
