    Nintendo to provide Autodesk Gameware technology to Wii U developers

    3 new tools for developers (free with the dev kit)
    these are:

    Autodesk Scaleform - is used for user interface development

    Autodesk Kynapse - is used for artificial intelligence

    Autodesk HumanIK - is for interactive character animation

    "Adopting Autodesk Gameware helps streamline the production process, freeing more resources for innovation in new areas," Autodesk senior vice president Marc Petit said. "This shift in development focus will help make the next-generation of titles more compelling than the last."

    "SAN FRANCISCO, March 6, 2012 -- Game Developer's Conference -- Autodesk, Inc., (NASDAQ: ADSK) has entered into a landmark license agreement allowing Nintendo Co., Ltd. to provide Autodesk Gameware technology to its licensed developers creating video games for the upcoming Wii U platform and helping differentiate Nintendo's new hardware, expected to hit store shelves later this year."

    "Under terms of the agreement, Autodesk, Inc. has granted Nintendo the right to provide licensed Wii U game developers with three Gameware products: Autodesk Scaleform middleware for user interface development, Autodesk Kynapse middleware for artificial intelligence and Autodesk HumanIK middleware for interactive character animation."
