Nintendo Wii U to get 17 Unity games in two months; 50 titles in pipeline

By  | 

Nintendo has revealed at the sidelines of the Game Developers Conference [GDC] last week that Wii U is set to receive 17 new Unity titles over the course of next two months and 50 other titles are already in the pipeline.

Nintendo already had 9 of the 17 Unity titles on display at the GDC and while speaking with Siliconera, Damon Baker, Senior Manager of Marketing at Nintendo’s of America’s Licensing department confirmed future Unity plans for the platform.

“Over the course of this show [at GDC], we have nine games on display,” Baker said. “We have 17 that are currently in the pipeline that have been submitted. So they will all be out within the next two months.”

Nintendo struck a deal with Unity back in 2012 allowing it to add support for the development technology on the Wii U. Independent developers use Unity as a development technology and the deal has made it possible for such developers to bring out games for the Wii U.

Baker said that Nintendo is also looking to add Unity support to 3DS, but nothing is certain and so refrained from making any announcement.

“We’ve got a lot of developers that want to take advantage of it,” Baker said. “So, we’re working towards that as well. But nothing to announce at this time.”
