Platinum Games’ Hideki Kamiya was recently asked on Twitter to reveal whether there’s an element he would change in the Wii U hardware. The outspoken designer replied, “I want multi touch.” Rather than allowing for multi-touch gestures, the Wii U GamePad has a resistive touch screen that only supports single-touch input. Kamiya is currently working on the Wii U-exclusive The Wonderful 101, in which players draw shapes on the Wii U GamePad’s touch screen to deliver attacks on enemies. The game is due for release in Europe on August 23rd and in North America on September 15th.
Touch screen. I want multi touch. RT @A25R02B19C86: Question: Is there one hardware component you’d change in the Wii U? If so, why?
