But Wii U not as revolutionary as the Wii Remote, admits creative director Peter Shea
Developers and consumers should never underestimate Nintendo despite the mixed reaction the Wii U has received, says the creative director of Firebrand Games.
Speaking to The Guardian, the Glasgow developer’s Peter Shea, whose studio is working on an unannounced title for Wii U, said Nintendo had been written off many times before when it launched systems such as the DS and Wii, which went on to be huge successes for the company.
He also highlighted the fact that Nintendo was one of the best games developers in the world, meaning its exclusives were still a big pull for consumers to buy their consoles.
Shea said too many people in the media had focused on the Wii U’s graphical capabilities rather than its tablet-style gamepad, although he admitted there was still confusion surrounding just how developers could harness the controller.
“There is still a degree of uncertainty about exactly what you can, should and must do with the Wii U, almost as if Nintendo is still working this out for itself, or not quite ready to show all its cards,” said Shea.
