Nintendo has said there are over 50 games coming to Wii U developed using the Unity engine, and another 17 which are set to be released within the next two months.

Speaking with Siliconera during GDC, the firm’s senior manager of marketing at NoA’s licensing department said there were nine games using the engine on display at the San Francisco event.

“Over the course of this show, we have nine games on display,” said Damon Baker. “We have 17 that are currently in the pipeline, that have been submitted. So they will all be out within the next two months.

“And then, we have another fifty that are waiting in the wings, that are coming; so we’ve got a lot of Unity content on the way.”

As we reported yesterday, Nintendo is also looking into implementing Unity support on 3DS, according to Baker.

    And the shovel wear begins then. I really want a Wii U but I just can’t justify £200 for a console that only has 2 games I want.

    And how many of those over 50 games will be worth buying and playing? Because if it’s the same situation as last generation, the answer is “one, maybe, if you’re lucky.”

    My attitude is simply this: games or it didn’t happen.

    In other News, there are 50 Games comming to WiiU. This somewhat feels like the GameCube and N64 era to me. I wonder what Nintendo is doing wrong, that there is such a lack of 3rd party Games on every Console since the SNES.

    This means absolutely nothing until they publish a list of the developers and games.

    the wiiu is a good console and in many ways a huge improvement for nintendo. their online structure is finally taking shape now and their take on social interaction on videogame consoles is just amazing and has a huge potential. the wiiu helps a lot to shape this modern nintendo identity and imo they have done a great job to feel unique, by not copy pasting what the competition does. i think this is pretty much underrated by games journos and many who watch this as bystanders not actually using the device. it might take longer for some to let that click but i think that they have done the exact right steps to pave a way for a great future that will bring nintendo back on the map again in the long run. the wiiu and 3ds also pretty much paved the way for another dual screen device – i think nintendo will foloow that concept and they should. the wiiu will get a lot of exclusives that will be worth owning the system for. apart from that it is pretty much dead, sure. people who enjoy nintendo games will enjoy the wiiu, will love the wiiu, for anyone else, this thing is not. it´s a gapping console for nintendos next thing, not a failure though because it implemented and shaped a lot of things that work and that we will probably see in future nintendo devices.

    “50 games using unity”

    Doesn’t this just mean that they are going to charge full price for a product they’ve cheaped out on?
