Good to know. I doubt if many people realize just how many games use Havok.

I know. This might end up meaning more ports and simultaneous releases.

Yeah, it's a big deal. If the developer uses the engine effectively on Wii U,chances that games will look absolutely incredible on it.

Havok is actually a range of tools; the most commonly used is the physics engine which has been available for Wii U developers for a long time. It's actually included with the development kit for free.

I did notice that some the games listed in that link were Wii U launch titles.
