EA promise to bring “key franchises” to Wii U

Whilst the Wii U may still be long while off, Peter Moore, recently promoted to Chief Operating Officer at EA, has reiterated that the publisher will be behind Nintendo’s new platform with all of their big titles.

Moore, who is due to visit Nintendo of Japan’s headquarters in Kyoto this week, also stated: “There are no indications that there’s anything that feels like it’s off target.”

“From our perspective right now, specs are a big deal,” he continued, revealing that during his trip he will be looking for more concrete details regarding the Wii U’s system spec, price and when it may be shipped.

Moore also explained his belief that Nintendo were smart to incorporate a tablet element into the console, commenting: “No one thinks its going to replace an iPad 2 but it is playing into what a consumer feels comfortable with.”

EA will also bring their core franchises to the system, presumably incorporating Battlefield, Dead Space and EA Sports titles, with Moore confirming:
“Our teams are working on it around the world. Our key franchises will be there. We’ve made that commitment to Nintendo.”
