Nintendo searching for “unprecedented partnerships” for Wii U

During an analyst meeting held alongside E3 2012 last week, Nintendo’s global president Satoru Iwata has expressed that the company wishes to create extensive partnerships with developers that have unique game concepts for Wii U.

He had been questioned as to whether Nintendo would readily strive to secure exclusive rights.

“While Nintendo is not entirely opposed to exploring that option, I don’t think it would be an appropriate course of action for Nintendo to get into a battle with a company like Microsoft over the cost or the expense of trying to go head to head in a situation to try to obtain exclusive rights,” Iwata discussed.

“If a third-party developer or publisher has come up with an idea of a potentially very unique use of the Wii U functionality with such a device, there is a high possibility that Nintendo will be a partner with that third-party in an unprecedented manner.”

Nintendo are already set to publish Traveller’s Tales’ LEGO City: Undercover, FreeStyle Games’ SiNG and Platinum Games’ Project P-100, each on show at E3 2012.
