Nintendo streamlines process for devs to port iOS games to Wii U



This is absolutely insane. Nintendo is going extremely out of there way to accommodate all sorts of indie devs. This information could really open the floodgates for the Wii U eShop!

Now if only there was a way to broadcast this into the brains of people who are so butthurt about how bad WiiWare was, that they refuse to accept the fact that things can and have improved.

I wonder how long until we get to see all those "innovative" games iOS developers get approved by Apple for it's App Store like:

3D Cartoon Land: Safari
Mole Kart I
Ultimate iZelda Climb
Krazy Kong
Little Masters
Zanda: The Linked Swords
or the latest Era's Adventures!

^.^

I really Nintendo's Approval process isn't as easy as it sounds..

Nintendo is not doing this, its Intel. And according to TwoTribes' dev, is not actually THAT easy.
Very good news anyway, the more apps this console gets the better.

They're only garbage because you've been brainwashed to think they're all garbage.

Doesn't sound too bad still. But yes, indeed. :P

Good to hear. There are some very good ios games that would benefit a lot by having actual buttons. Hopefully they won't be twice as much money on eShop though...

I honestly cannot think of one (exclusive) ios game ... the technology surely is limited to very simple app. I mean otherwise i think minecraft would be just a click away ? .... or those sweet wonderful cave shoot them up games , that would be so awesome ... so it won't . I can see Cave refusing despite the thing not costing them a lot , despite nintendo giving them exposure which they would, and the elephant in the room despite knowing full well that people play their games they just don't pay for it ... exactly like it is for the neogeo games . At least snk vol 1 , metal slug collection , samurai shodown collection helped a little .
Well maybe at least that will help bringing those games and ikaruga on the pc steam at least .

oh i see intel technology , well it's not like it was the magic bullet .

Exactly my thoughts. Plus he said it converts it to Javascript/CSS, which is hardly ideal for anything complex. Maybe if it converted it to Java you might have something, but as is it seems like it would only be good for simple games without any 3D graphics and basic apps like basic photo editing, camera effects, etc.

Nintendo is making some pretty nice plays when it comes to eshop. Hopefully this won't make the eshop a dumping ground and will make it an even better service.

Nintendo still has some approval in the process, so I doubt games of dubious IP parentage would make it on the eShop.

What it appears to be doing is working with partners to lower the barriers to entry to the eShop for the WiiU. I cannot think of how that would be a bad thing.

Oh I know, but as easy as the conversion process they're making it sound plus Nintendo constantly repeating the simplicity of the aproval process is. I only mean it'll be funny if it's as "strict" as Apple's screening process is =P and more so since it's Nintendo approving Nintendo ripped IPs XP
