This is good seeing that epic games has been not to fond of wiiU. But we all know as in the past unreal will be killer. unreal 4 dx11 games will be amazing. Epic has more man power and $$ to do it.

That first statement is historically untrue. There are several quotes from Epic Games people saying how good the Wii U is. They just can't focus on the platform at present.

Epic said that they will not support the Wii U directly with unreal 4, but whoever wants to use unreal 4 on wii u is free to do so. Does lack of direct support just means no epic will not make games for the Wii U? Can Nintendo themselves use the engine if they want to? I don't know what direct support entails here.

This is great news for the amount of indie and digital content that the WiiU should end up receiving because of announcement such as this!

this is fantastic news!!!
UNITY 3 is one hell of a engine, and there is already large number's of developer's signed up in many parts of the Gaming industry from mobile to PC to other embedded Gaming systems. Good going Nintendo, this was a very good thing.

Now 3rd party developer support for Nintendo WiiU is going to have good support. How big is Unity 3 game engine?

Its freaking Huge

Over 950K registered developers including Bigpoint, Cartoon Network, Coca-Cola, Disney, Electronic Arts, LEGO, Microsoft, NASA, Nickelodeon, Ubisoft, US Army, Warner Bros., large and small studios, independent professionals, students and hobbyists. There are over 275K monthly active developers. To see where they're taking Unity
