EA apparently making games for the Wii U

Quote:
Electronic Arts is pulling an about-face regarding the Wii U. Contrary to previous reports, EA's chief financial officer asserts the company is developing games for Nintendo's home console.

Speaking at the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media and Communications Conference, Blake Jorgensen stated EA has Wii U games in the works, however, these titles are apparently fewer in number than the publisher's forthcoming PlayStation 4 and Xbox One projects.

Jorgensen's statement seems to be at odds with a pair of remarks from company mouthpieces. Last week, EA spokesman Jeff Brown sparked controversy, saying the company has "no games in development for the Wii U currently."

The situation became inflamed shortly thereafter when EA Senior Software Engineer and Architect Bob Summerwill made disparaging remarks at Nintendo's expense, referring to the Wii U as "crap" and recommending the platform holder get out of the hardware business.

I think this is worth noting considering that the announcement potentially coincides with an(albeit unrealistic) batch of Nintendo E3 rumors

Quote:

Pokemon X and Y and Pokemon Rumble U news expected with no other Pokémon games revealed.

Game Updates

Yoshi Wii U is said to be a late 2013/early 2014 title.

New Animal Crossing expected, but “way off” for Wii U.

A Final Fantasy remake is being developed for Wii U.

Legend of Zelda

New Legend of Zelda is said to feature a return for past races like the Gorons, Zoras plus new additional species to encounter.
The game is also venturing into more “RPG-like” territory without “going full out RPG”, like Skyward Sword.

Hardware Revisions and Performance

Brilliant news update. A lot of interesting stuff. Star Fox, Retro's title, and I'm REALLY hoping the new Wii U isn't just a slimmer version with little to no actual upgrade.

Also hoping the 3DS revision has dual circle pads.
