Electronic Arts dedicated to Wii U

"Our key franchises will be there," says Moore.

Nintendo unveiled its next generation games consoles at E3 this June. But since then, Nintendo hasn’t spoken much more on the console. Electronic Arts chief operating officer Peter Moore shared his thoughts on the system with Reuters today.

“There are no indications that there’s anything that feels like it’s off target,” Moore told the news agency.

Moore will be visiting Kyoto, Japan next week to check up on the console, he said.

“From our perspective right now, specs are a big deal,” he said, adding that he’s hoping to find out more about Wii U’s innards, price, and ship date during his trip.

Nintendo’s past consoles have demonstrated primary first-party and minimal third-party support. With Wii U, however, Moore said Electronic Arts is fully on board.

“Our teams are working on it around the world. Our key franchises will be there. We’ve made that commitment to Nintendo.”
