    “Congratulations! ¬†We are pleased to advise you that we are¬†authorizing Photon Storm Ltd. for Wii U software development.”

    I don’t think I’ve ever received a more exciting email than the one from Nintendo that contained the above :) We applied via their GDC2013 invite to develop games and apps on the Wii U using their new HTML5 APIs. After a quite lengthy approval process we were finally pleased to be told we had made it through.

    Our Dev Kits are in the process of being ordered, and although we’ve only got access to the documentation at the moment we can already see the power of what the Nintendo APIs will allow us to do. Obviously we’re tightly bound under NDA but we’ll talk about as much of the experience as we’re allowed to. And of course we’ll be making sure that both Phaser and Kiwi are fully compatible with Nintendo’s Web Framework. So keep your eyes peeled!
