Wii U E3 2011

EA Sports has their mitts (get it, baseball?) on Wii U dev kits. They've spent enough time with the Wii U to confidentially say Nintendo's next console can do "anything" the PS3 and Xbox 360 can.

"It's still moving," said EA Sports VP Andrew Wilson to Eurgoamer, "but I think we'll be able to do anything that we can do on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on the Wii U."

Eurogamer asked Wilson about some of the challenges EA is expecting when developing games for the Wii U.

"There are added challenges for us as developers when you think about rendering on two screens and what that might mean, but we're looking forward to that challenge."

Despite these challenges, EA is hopeful for the Wii U's future. Little is known about the Wii U's online features as EA and other developers are under strict NDAs but Wilson was able to offer some insight on those features.

"[Online is] something that we're working very closely with Nintendo on," said Wilson. "We are highlighting to them what we believe are the most important elements to that infrastructure to deliver a connected experience that we think is the future of gaming. They have demonstrated an openness and willingness to work with us and work with developers that I think will only land us in a positive place."

EA is still in the dark about the Wii U's release date and as such is still unsure which games they will offer at launch. "We're preparing development and we will make a judgment-call on the timing of that and how it relates to the other platforms once they have a better idea of when they're launching."

Based on this interview, it sounds like the Wii U is still quite a ways from being ready to launch. Are there any games you hope EA publishes for the Wii U?
