iOS Developers May Be Able To Port Games To The Wii U

Opens plenty of opportunities

Nintendo is opening its doors to even more indie developers than ever, but it would seem that a new third-party service could make it even easier for bedroom coders to get their titles onto the Wii U eShop.

According to a tweet from Steward Christie — who works for Tizen App Developers and is currently attending GDC 2013 — people who stopped by Intel booth 1016 would be able to demo an iOS to Wii U conversion.

This means it may be possible for iOS developers to quickly and easily port games over to the Wii U. Not every game would be applicable, of course — the iPad and iPhone have multi-touch, whereas the Wii U GamePad doesn't.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you happy to see more iOS ports on the Wii U? Or do you think this could open the floodgates for poor-quality software? Post a comment to tell us what you think.
