Miyamoto ‘NFC is Feature Everyone Who Owns Wii U Can Take Advantage of’

Any Wii U console owner who has ever played  Skylander,  can appreciate the NFC technology which transports figurines into the game when placed upon its powered portal.

Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto talks about how the company is putting its priorities into the NFC tech, and is hopeful he can show off games soon that use that technology.

“With NFC, that’s a feature that everyone that owns a Wii U can take advantage of so that’s what we’re putting our priorities right now. We’re hoping that in the near future we’ll be able to show you something that will take advantage of the NFC on Wii U and people will be able to enjoy that.”

Miyamoto added: “With regards to the two GamePads functionality, from a gaming system standpoint we are developing games that will have that capability,” Miyamoto said. “In the future, perhaps when we get closer to something that, an environment where everybody or a large majority of people would have two GamePads, that might be a time where we look at how we can leverage a system of that nature.”
