Nnooo Becomes Official WiiU Developer

Nintendo confirmed recent rumors that it is working on a successor to the Wii, scheduled for launch in 2012. Wii U includes a controller with a 6.2-inch screen. Adding a second screen to the living room creates a multitude of new video game experiences while offering families a variety of options to customize their entertainment.

The Sydney-based studio is the first Australian developer to announce WiiU approval.

Nnooo has been developing titles for Nintendo since the studio was formed in 2006 and is best known for US WiiWare launch title Pop, the myLifeCollected range of lifestyle applications for Nintendo DSiWare, and most recently escapeVektor: Chapter 1 for WiiWare.

"We're thrilled to receive developer approval for this exciting new console," said Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo. "We can't wait to see what the console is capable of and already have a number of ideas we'd like to experiment with."

 Nnooo is currently developing Spirit Hunters Inc, an augmented reality RPG for Nintendo DSiWare, and escapeVektor for the Nintendo 3DS™ and PlayStation®Vita, all of which are expected to be released in the final quarter of 2012.

"We're very close to finishing Spirit Hunters Inc and escapeVektor," said Watt. "We'll be showcasing the games at Gamescom in Cologne in the middle of August. Once these games are completed we'll be prototyping some ideas for the Wii U to get a feel for what we can do. We've already had a quick play with the hardware and everyone in the studio is super impressed by the GamePad and the capabilities of the Wii U itself."   

Spirit Hunters Inc and escapeVektor are scheduled for release in late 2012.
