Unity Technologies has announced the signing of an agreement with Nintendo to license the Unity engine for the Wii U.
The deal grants Nintendo the right to distribute the development platform to all its licensee developers including in-house, external, and third party.
The rapid growth of incredible games coming from the experienced and talented developers in our community makes Unity the new development platform of choice for triple-A console developers,” said Unity’s CEO David Helgason.
Nintendo’s unfettered access to Unity will produce a wealth of insanely good games from knowledgeable Nintendo developers and the Wii U deployment add-on will create an amazing opportunity for our massive community of developers to showcase their incredible creativity on one of the most anticipated and innovative gaming platforms to date.”
Unity’s Wii U support will be made widely available later this year.
