Layton's reading about himself in this week's Famitsu

This week's issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu features a section where game developers and producers talk about Nintendo's next home console the Wii U, and among those that took part were Level-5 president and CEO Akihiro Hino and Jiro Ishii, who's working on the upcoming 3DS title Time Travelers.

As reported by Japanese blog Sokuho@Hokanko and translated by Andriasang, Hino revealed that Level-5 can now consider porting the Professor Layton games over to the Wii U thanks to the controller's touch screen which will enable stylus-like input. Hino also expressed his interest in exploring what other games can now be enjoyed in the living room with the introduction of the Wii U.

Ishii on the other hand, was just excited to see the The Legend of Zelda tech demo in action. Speaking about the Wii U's controller, Ishii said he's personally excited to see how the controller will change the way gamers enjoy their boardgames and card games.
