The Wii U’s got new features, says Capcom’s Ono

1 min read


Capcom’s slightly mental Yoshinori Ono, the guy responsible for the Namco crossover Street Fighter X Tekken has his hands on new Wii U development kits from Nintendo – and he reckons that the new tablet-controlled console might just have an ace up its sleeve.

Speaking to Spanish site 3d Juegos, translated by a neoGAF user, Ono said:

"What was shown at E3 is not a reflection of everything that this console is going to be able to offer. We have been trying the development kits and some of its new characteristics will improve its possibilities. It isn’t something like Kinect or similar accessories, it’s something different. I can’t tell you more about it because, if I do, Nintendo will send assassins to finish me! But let’s say that Wii U will be a console with so many unique possibilities that it will be difficult to show them in the box they are going to sell it in, or be published in magazines and other media."

Ignoring that fact that Ono’s confirmed that Nintendo assassins exist, his sentiment echo’s some of Nintendo’s comments regarding the 3DS before its release – so it’s possible the tablet itself might be 3D. Or maybe, maybe that vitality sensor thing is coming to fruition. On the other hand, it is Ono, and he’s got a terrible habit of telling complete mistruths for his own amusement – prompting me to use this genius picture I found in the very same GAF thread.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
