Construct 2 Adding Support for Wii U Developers
Scirra, creators of the easiest to use game development tool, Construct 2, are announcing support for Wii U developers. Game developers will soon be able to create and self-publish games on the Wii U using the Construct 2 software. An option to port games using the Nintendo Web Framework will be added to Construct 2 in a future update. However, there is a catch: you need to become a Nintendo Authorised Developer before you can publish on the Wii U.
So, to publish your Construct 2 game on the Wii U, you will need the following:
- Become a Nintendo Authorised Developer (apply here)
- A Wii U development kit to test your games.
- A Construct 2 Personal license (or Business license when applicable)
This opens up a world of possibilities for game developers looking to get their games on Nintendo’s digital storefront, the Nintendo eShop.
