Nintendo helping developers via “infinity…and beyond!” approach.
Last week, it was revealed
that VooFoo Studios’ popular interactive strategy title Pure Chess
would be released in the coming weeks for the Wii U and 3DS eShops.
At the time of launch, Pure Chess
will support cross-platform multiplayer support between Nintendo and non-Nintendo hardware systems.
Specifically, the Nintendo versions of the game will allow players to face-off against other awaiting challengers on platforms such as PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and even mobile users of Android and Apple devices.
Today, online publication site VG247 has received additional information regarding Nintendo’s upcoming cross-platform multiplayer support for future titles.
We can confirm that cross-platform functionality is possible in certain titles that play on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, as well as other video game systems not made by Nintendo. We are committed to helping developers realise the full potential of their software on Nintendo systems, a representative said in a statement.
We can confirm that Disney Infinity from Disney Interactive Studios, Cubemen 2 from Three Sprockets and Pure Chess from Ripstone, all have the ability to play on Nintendo systems while at the same time communicating with consumers using those same games on other systems. Additional games using this functionality are in development.
