EA appeared on a Nintendo stage for the first time ever at E3 this year, signifying the company’s coming support for Nintendo’s new high-definition system, Wii U. Speaking to IGN during E3, EA Sports president Peter Moore said that the Mario and Zelda creator has recognized an online future.
“Nintendo has recognized the future is connected. The future is online. The future is about building powerful communities,” said Moore. “They know they have to do that, and certainly with the conversations I’ve been in with them I’m very optimistic. We all need to help them, which we’re all willing to do. When I say ‘we’ I mean developers and publishers bringing their best practices.”
“I think it would be great to have three, powerful online game networks going at it with each other.”
Nintendo has yet to share official details regarding the system’s online features, but few details have been teased.
Wii U launches in 2012.
Thanks, This Is Wii U.
