Wii U will have strong showing at E3 - Epic

The Wii U will have a strong showing at E3 this year, says Epic Games VP, Mark Rein.

"I like the Wii U. I think E3 will be a big eye-opener for people," he told Eurogamer. "I played Batman: Arkham City on the Wii U and they are doing some really cool stuff with the controller."

"Do you remember the Zelda demo they had on it? Would you not buy a Wii U just to play that? Of course you would. That's what Nintendo is all about. Their hardware is the software delivery service for their great content. That Zelda demo was gorgeous and we can do even more than that with Unreal Engine 3. I think it will do great."

He used the Wii U's Battle Mii game as an example of how Nintendo is going to amaze us this year.

"Did you play that Battle Mii game? Two players would play with a Wii Remote and Nunchuk and one would play with the Wii U controller?

"I would buy a Wii U to play that game in a heartbeat. And I hope people make those kind of games with our technology. I think we've yet to really see what the Wii U can do and I think at E3 this year they're going to shock us."

I hope it does shock us!
If Epic are keen, then that reassures me a little. If they weren't interested, they would just come out and say so.
I'm so glad Epic is into the console, expect some great stuff from them [Derp]
Going by history...the/an actual main Zelda Wii U game will look different to the Zelda tech demo.
But a part of me hopes that it does turn out to look (or better) like the Zelda tech demo.
