FIFA Producer: Wii U Potential is "Pretty Exciting"
Posted by Mike Mason
FIFA 13 hasn't been announced for Wii U yet, but during an interview about the game and the future of the series, FIFA executive producer David Rutter expressed interest in the potential of Wii U GamePad, labelling it "pretty exciting".
CVG asked Rutter if he found Wii U interesting and received an enthusiastic response in return. Rutter is apparently impressed with some of the ideas the team has come up with when thinking about a second screen — though for now, he's keeping quiet on specifics so that nobody else poaches any ideas.
It's pretty exciting actually. I've been talking to a bunch of the guys about the games that they're working on here, and about what they want to do with Wii U or with [Xbox] SmartGlass and stuff like that. And if you look at it from a different perspective, I'm not going to tell you exactly what because it's kind of competitive advantage, I think there were a few kind of 'wow, that's a pretty cool way of looking at it' moments, so that idea of a second screen, I think it has some really, really big positives.
How would you like to see FIFA approached on Wii U?
