Future projects using communication between Wii U and 3DS in the works
Despite all of the amazing announcements at E3, apparently Nintendo still has plenty up their sleeves when it comes to future projects. Among these innovations yet to be announced are the increased communication between the Wii U and 3DS consoles and how they will work together. In a recent interview with IGN, Shigeru Miyamoto gave this reasoning for why we have not heard more yet.
I guess it just hasn't really fit into the titles that we have been making, and it's not that we haven't thought about it.
While we have heard reports about transferring character data between the Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. 4 and similar functionality in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, one cannot help but feel that Nintendo is not using its technology to its fullest capability, especially with the new details about PSNow that were revealed at E3.
Fortunately, Shinya Takahashi, general manager of Nintendo Software Planning and Development, confirmed that more functionality is in the works.
There are some things that we're working on that we haven't announced here at E3 that do involve some sort of communication between the Wii U and 3DS.
This statement came during an answer to a question about Super Smash Bros., but later on he insinuated that the projects are related to "Mario and Donkey Kong." Whether the project has to do with the series of that name or Mario and Donkey Kong, individually, he would not say.
Would you be excited to have this type of cross-platform functionality? Would you use it even if it meant having to buy a game for the Wii U and 3DS? Let us know in the comments, and don't forget to follow us @WiisWorld on Twitter!
