Mar 27th, 2013

We’re here at the 2013 Game Developer’s Conference and we’re hoping that today is a big day for Nintendo Wii U fans. It’s not surprising that Nintendo has a huge presence at GDC, matching Sony with an equally humongous booth at the expo’s entrance, but with the next generation of console wars heating up we’re hoping Nintendo will have something new to show.


In addition to scoping out everything at the Nintendo booth (show floor opens at 10AM Pacific), we’ll also be attending a special Nintendo Wii U Session for developers titled “Nintendo Wii U Application Development with HTML and Javascript”. We’re not sure if anything enlightening will be revealed at this session or if it instead will be a very code heavy discussion, but as you know, we can’t risk not bringing you ALL the Wii U news possible.


While you’re waiting for us to bring you the latest Nintendo news from GDC, why not head over to our Wii U Forums and keep the conversation going? If you haven’t joined already, you’ll find a friendly and knowledgeable community of Wii U enthusiasts, eager to discuss the latest news, games, and strategies.

Stay tuned!

    Nintendo TVii, eShop, Miiverse, and of course the browser are all written using a mix of native code and HTML and JavaScript. Nintendo has also trademarked (very recently in 2013) the name Nintendo Web Framework. During the annual investors conference, Iwata said that at GDC they want to show devs how to easily write apps and games using simple tools. I think it is clear that Nintendo is going to show developers how to create native web apps for the Wii U, which makes sense because the Wii U has a powerful WebKit based webengine and also because web applications do not take long to load (the web browser for example loads instantly) and many simple apps that we find on Smart Devices can be written in HTML and JavaScript and many are already written in these languages, and developers of simple apps and games are not going to need to purchase expensive Wii U dev kits in order develop the basic apps.

  • Thanks for the hard work!

  • Chiwawa

    i’ll be here waiting for the good news.

  • Easter_egg27

    I don´t think that nintendo presence at GDC will be that good.
    The name of their conference is Wii u application development with HTML and JavaScript.
    But hopefully i´m wrong.

  • Yes. Yes indeed
    Slowly but surely nintendo

  • Ryan House

    How long did Ubisoft Delay Rayman Legends? its the only game from Ubisoft for Wii U I want so Far.

    • gobrowniesgo

      Rayman comes out in sept.

  • Ryan House

    I can’t wait until E3. I want to see Mario Kart U and The Wind Waker U

  • Zorbo85

    LMFAO at you pathetic nintendo slurpers saying sales do not matter!!!!PMSFL!!!
    Of course sales matter you rettards and why rayman was delayed and B4 not coming due to ABYSMAL sales of the wii u!!!
    Developers only release games on consoles that have large fan bases and will not waste their time making games for consoles with only 3 million fan bases!!
    The same thing happened to the 3ds cack launch,priced way to high and only the price drop saved it!!!
    Funny the vita for over a year in japan sold 9k per week…………then it has a price drop and sales go up 300 percent in the month following the drop which goes to show you price was one of the main reasons why the vita failed in japan for so long!!!
    After E3 WII U WILL BE DEAD!!!!

  • Zorbo85

    LMFAO nintendo have just released a lame video showing the difference of loading times before and after the april update!!!WTF?
    Every wii u constantly crashing and having issues goes to show once again a nintendo console was rushed!!!to release a console have it fail so badly at simply things like loading and then iwata do a public apology is PATHETIC!!!
    Wii u was rushed and stupidly released early just to get a head start on the next gen….funny that the wii and ps3 were shown at E32006 and released a few months apart yet the wii destroyed it in sales!!!
    After E3 wii u is dead!!!

Man you should makes some changes cause what you do here is really sad. Now f the f off will ya?!?!

We will be taking donations later since he has no job, no woman, no friends, no parents, siblings or any one at all that gives a crap about him. Such a sad case.
