Vigil, the development team behind Darksiders 2 have stated that the Wii U is easy to develop for. The team say that the ease of development on Wii U is similar to that of the Xbox 360 which is renowned as being a simple console to develop for. Great news for those developers looking to bring their projects to Wii U.
“From a pure programmer point of view, it’s definitely a lot easier than, say, the PS3 was. It’s probably on par with 360 as far as ease of API, simplicity of how you interact with the hardware.”
“[On Wii U] we were literally finding things and telling Nintendo about them. ‘Hey how does this work?’ ‘Well, I don’t know.’ So we were finding the solutions ourselves sometimes. It was kind of like a new frontier.”
