Shin’en has confirmed via Twitter, that they will be revealing their new Wii U game "...in days, rather than weeks.” Get the full quote past the link.
Looking forward to seeing what they are cooking up.
Looking forward to Nano Assault Neo 2 on Wii U. Black Block, We are the Resistance.
it would be sweet if it was a new iridion or nanostray or perhaps a next gen wipeout-esq fast racing league title. whatever it is, it will most assuredly use the wii-u gamepad for 2nd screen/off tv play.
Yea anything for the Wii U is good at this point.
Shin'en isn't just "anything", they are king at getting the most out of hardware. Just looks at Jett Rocket on the Wii Shop, that game looks as good as Mario Galaxy, but is limited by the measly download caps the original Wii had (42mb or something). Look at Nano Assault Neo on the Wii U, that game only used one core and looks better than most PS360 games anyway. Whatever they show will probably blow anything we've seen on the Wii U out of the water.
Considering how much they talk about the Wii U's graphical capabilities, this should be an interesting reveal. And they're using a new engine if I'm not mistaken.
As I said in a post earlier, Shin'en are king at getting the most out of hardware. Jett Rocket on the Wii, used only 42mb and looked almost as good as mario galaxy and Nano Assault Neo used only one of the Wii U's cores and looked better than most PS360 games. Whatever they show will probably blow everything we've seen on the Wii U out of the water, considering they haven't got any of those previous limits now, and they're running a new engine.
re-vamped f-zero GX would be great. They definitely could be trusted with that.
They basically created their own FZ-clone. Check out "FAST: Racing League" on WiiWare.
i know what they've created. i dont want a 'clone' as you put it. i want F-Zero, and these guys, because of said clone, could be trusted with it. This was my point.
They once said on Twitter that if Nintendo offered them F-Zero they would be honored, but decline. They want to make their own legendary game first before tackling something like that. Whatever it is they are making, I'm hyped for it. It'll actually take advantage of the hardware unlike Nano Assault Neo (by their own admittance).....brand new engine, tesselation, optimized, use more than 1 CPU core. Possibly 1080p/60fps if we are lucky considering they got NAN running at 1080p but scaled it back to include more effects. It was also 60fps during 2 player with one on the TV and one on the screen...which is awesome.
Nintendo needs to lure AAA devs over. Ones with name recognition. And they need to do it soon. I couldn't care less about another Japanimation game. I really want to like my Wii U, I really do. But Nintendo isn't making it easy. I feel like I've been defending their systems since the Gamecube and I'm starting to lose faith.
Pardon? Shin'en isn't a "Japanimation" team. These guys are responsible for developing Jett Rocket, Fast: Racing League, and Art of Balance; three titles - WIIWARE TITLES - that look better than 90% of the Wii's retail library. These are also the guys who've been giving little snippets of intel on the systems specs and the team behind the Wii U eShop's "Nano Assault: NEO". Try again.
I have literally never heard of any of those games. This, why I am calling for some name recognition Nintendo can draw from. Not just the hardcore audience. Indie games are great, but they won't sell a system.
Japanimation :) You know, even though Shin'en sound japanese, it actually is a german dev studio and its devs dont actually come from the gaming scene, they come from the demo scene, so they are experts in pushing hardware really hard. So I expect graphical improvements on Wii U with this game. I am really excited for it.
@MrCastle - go to the eShop and buy Nano Assault Neo. A crazy, fun, addictive game. With amazing graphics to boot.
Sell your Wii U.
Oh man, after laying down the gauntlet to other developers, these guys better deliver.
Its going to be a FPS!
I liked the music in Nano Assault Neo, its was energized
Finally. A third party game from a dev that actually knows how to work with Nintendo's hardware.
I believe, Shin'ens main dev stated in an interview, that they are working on a sequel to a racing game. Dont know if they ever did a racing game before, so I believe it is F-Zero. It would make a lot of sense, since the graphicstyle of Shin'ens games would be a perfect fit for a F-Zero. Would be very nice, to have a new F-Zero, loved the series.
They did Fast: Racing League. It's basically F-Zero on the Wii, you should look it up.
Shin'en has demonstrated exceptional understanding of Nintendo's video game systems and release complete games...perhaps akin to their first-party studios. What do you think are the chances Shin'en have been asked to develop or assist in the development of a game for one of Nintendo's franchises? I feel it is unlikely but it would be a nice surprise given how busy the studios of Nintendo are with their transition to developing for a high-definition console.
Yeah....they've said that if Nintendo offered them F-Zero, they would decline because they want to make a name for themselves first. I'm guessing that would apply to any Nintendo franchise too.
I did not know that. Thanks.
Bring it guys... oh a new lic engine would be sweet too so others can bring it also. Lol
I think the collective Wii U audience would blow their tops if they revealed that Nintendo gave them the F-Zero franchise and they were doing an updated GX game. Oh man.. now I'm setting myself up for disappointment if it's anything but... lol
