Nintendo says yes: Nnooo begins Wii U development

Sydney-based developer Nnooo has received approval from Nintendo to start development on Wii U software, and become the first Australian developer to do so in the process.

Formed in 2006, Nnooo has become a WiiWare and DSiWare specialist with hits such as escapeVektor quickly becoming an office favourite around MMGN.

"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."

"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."

Nnooo is currently working on Spirit Hunters Inc for DSiWare, and escapeVektor for 3DS and PlayStation Vita.

At this stage, it isn't ready to announce any specific plans for the Wii U, and MMGN can confirm that there won't be any rushed launch titles.

MMGN should get in contact with Nnooo and try and get an interview or something. It'd be a good read [monkey]

This would be very very difficult to do. It would involve Heller getting on MSN.

Or Heller planning an interview rather than a "quick drink" that turns into all night [Shifty]
Dammit Heller! [Rage]
