Nintendo has entered into a global licence agreement that will enable Wii U developers to use tech that is promised can produce high-performance, efficient code.
Developers making Wii U software can now employ Green Hills' MULTI integrated development environment middleware.
It was not stated whether Nintendo's development partners will have to pay for the licence.
"We selected the Green Hills Software solution because it generates highly optimised code, and Green Hills provides excellent global support," said Nintendo’s R&D managing director Genyo Takeda.
Green Hills said its middleware offers “maximum reliability, maximum performance, and minimum code size”.
