Tekken dev wary of Wii U "distraction"

Publish date:

The Wii U offers developers huge scope for innovation, but not all studios are enthusiastic about the possibilities.

Specifically, the man behind Namco Bandai's Tekken series has spoken of his concerns that the use of two screens might be distracting” for players.

"Looking at the small screen and the big screen at the same time is pretty distracting for a fighting game," Katsuhiro Harada told Eurogamer.

"So we're thinking of making it useful as a way of having shortcuts or by making progressing through the game more convenient. Or by playing alone on the GamePad screen."

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be released first on Xbox 360 and PS3 on September 14th. It is then expected to be a Wii U launch title later in the year.
