Third Party Developers Take on the Wii U

Nintendo platforms have a reputation for being... not so friendly for third-party developers.

But Nintendo is hoping that its next-generation Wii U, launching this weekend, will come out of the gate with a reputation for hosting a variety of games, both from first parties and third parties.

Gamasutra spoke with a handful of third-party developers working on Wii U launch and launch window titles, such as Aliens: Colonial Marines, Darksiders II, ZombiU, Mass Effect 3, and others. It's early on, but these developers are cautiously optimistic about the future of Nintendo's unique new console, and the opportunities for third parties. (Wii U)
