Dev claims Wii U much more than what E3 revealed

The Street Fighter X Tekken producer says the game has several "unique possibilities."

Yoshinori Ono, producer of upcoming mega-crossover Street Fighter X Tekken, has claimed that what Nintendo showed of the Wii U at E3 2011 was merely a small look into everything the console is capable of.

“What we saw last E3 is not a reflection of everything this console is able to offer,” said Ono in a recent interview with 3DJuegos, translated by a NeoGaf user. “We have been trying the development kits and some of its new characteristics will improve its possibilities. It isn’t something like Kinect or similar accessories, it’s something different.”

He joked about how he is unable to say exactly what that “something different” is with the Wii U, but Ono did remark that these features will be tough to market based upon what they are.

“I can’t tell you more about it because, if I do, Nintendo will send assassins to finish me!” he quipped. “But let’s say that Wii U will be a console with so many unique possibilities that it will be difficult to show them in the box they are going to sell it in, or be published in magazines and other media.”

This is a problem that Nintendo is familiar with. The company ran into the same issue when trying to properly market and advertise the Nintendo 3DS. Hopefully the Big N has learned from the past and figured out a way to better advertise the “unique possibilities” contained within the Wii U.

Earlier today, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata announced that the next-gen console will be available in Japan, Europe and the US by the end of 2012.
