Nintendo Expanding the Possibilities of Online Gaming with Cross-Platform Play


Nintendo is making waves in the gaming world, and this time it’s for a positive reason. In continuing to show how versatile and distinct the Wii U is from its counterparts, Nintendo has taken a bold initiative. Developer VooFoo (who is making “Pure Chess”) stated that the Wii U will allow for cross-platform play between mobile devices and the Wii U. In an interview, VooFoo stated this about Nintendo:

“They’ve also been very open minded in allowing us to support cross platform play with the iOS and Android versions of Pure Chess this is a really great move and something I hope we’ll be able as developers to do much more in the future. Wii U really seemed to be an ideal platform to bring Pure Chess to – it’s quite a beast of a machine so is very capable of throwing around some pretty impressive visuals.”

It certainly is quite a breakthrough of technology when gamers from mobile markets, PC’s and consoles can all meet online to play a round of their favorite game. We are very excited to see what possibilities await Nintendo’s Wii U as their ever expanding inventory of online titles release.
