Unity Technologies partner with Nintendo for Wii U
Unity Technologies have announced that they have entered into a worldwide license agreement with Nintendo that will allow their multi-platform engine and development tools to be used for Wii U projects.
Nintendo now has the right to distribute the development platform to in-house, external and third-party licensee developers, alongside Unity’s 1.2 million registered developers.
This provides the perfect opportunity for games previously developed using the Unity engine to be brought across to the new console, as well as new titles to be created moving forward.
“The rapid growth of incredible games coming from the experienced and talented developers in our community makes Unity the new development platform of choice for AAA console developers,” discussed David Helgason, CEO at Unity Technologies.
“Nintendo’s unfettered access to Unity will produce a wealth of insanely good games from knowledgeable Nintendo developers and the Wii U deployment add-on will create an amazing opportunity for our massive community of developers to showcase their incredible creativity on one of the most anticipated and innovative gaming platforms to date.”
