    For something so graphical, it's very promising that they really didn't take advantage of the hardware to pull it off. They're basically saying NAN was a warm-up. I look forward to what they have in store in years to come.

    Before any angry arguments begin, let's keep clear that graphics prowess, or lack of graphics power, isn't the main reason why Wii U is not selling.

    Man, when I bought Nano Assault Neo on the WiiU I was so blown away. Me and my friend absolutely love the game.

    One thing I'm curious about though is if the WiiU is actually capable of doing 1080p for games. But still, I would love to see more games by Shin'en for the WiiU, maybe a sequel to Nano Assault with more levels and features.

    Of course not, the reason is profitability of games. EA doesn't want to bother as much.

    No idea. I was actually thinking about buying that, but the price is just too steep for my tastes.

    The Wii U's problem was never the hardware, but how profitable games would be when ported over/released as multi-platform. For one reason or another, EA has animosity but no one knows why. The machine is capable, more so than we ever imagined, Frostbite 3 could be ported over, so could Unreal 4. Perhaps not perfectly intact, but it could be done.

    Cool ..some positiveness for a change

    that "it has accessible architecture vs. its not as accessible as the others" talk seems to come and go often.. ...don't know how muck of a problem it could be for real to developers.. ..I guess that's not a big thing when they don't consider the WiiU though..

    Knowing what Shin'en managed to do on the Wii (FAST Racing League), I'm certain they are not bluffing. Now just make some more Wii U games to prove it and we're done here. Hopefully, another FAST, or F-Zero if you're at it.

    These guys must be the new Factor 5 because they seem to know more about the hardware than everyone except Nintendo. And that's a good thing :P

    It's one of the reasons companies aren't developing as many games for it*, and people aren't buying due to the lack of games.

    * - Difficulty is sorta' another reason, apparently.

    It's worth nothing coming from them because they're not a company with any integral heft. They're a Nintendo only developer and their catalogue of games doesn't include anything that marks them out as a company who'll be responsible for any real system sellers or games that'll appeal to a huge audience.

    Good on them for sticking up for their "führer" but without some kind of pedigree backing their claims (not in the sense they're able to use the Wii U's power but in the sense they'll make something worthwhile with it) it means nothing.

    Several titles use native 1080p on the Wii U, such as Batman, Assassin's Creed 3, and MH3U (they use the same structures from Tri though, so it's still blocky).

    Based on the above this doesn't really count as news either...not when most people would have to Google Shin'en to have any idea who they are.
