Yoshikazu Matsuhana, Creative Producer at Kojima Productions has revealed that the studio were approached by Nintendo far in advance of Nintendo’s E3 Media Presentation to create games for the Wii U. Whilst they won’t announce anything any time soon, Kojima Productions are currently discussing ideas on how best to support the platform.
“Obviously we did have talks with Nintendo early on – they approached us with the Wii U,” he explained. “We can’t say exactly when this happened or what kind of talks we’ve had but we were aware of the hardware and we’ve been looking at it.”
He continued, “We are very much thinking about possibilities with the Wii U and it looks like a very fun system. As for whether we’ll have something at launch for the Wii – we can’t say that. Probably not, but we definitely have things in mind.”
“We’re also looking at the public reaction. If there are enough people who say they want us to bring something to the Wii U that also factors into things.”
“We anticipated we would get questions about [Metal Gear Solid] today and unfortunately our answer is, we can’t answer that. We can’t say anything right now. Top secret,”

So while nothing is set in stone it would be a great help to Nintendo if they could get some of the big names on board. Time will tell.
