Autodesk has announced at GDC it has signed a licence agreement with Nintendo which will allow developers to use the firm’s Gameware technology when creating Wii U titles. The agreement will provide developers with the option to use the firm’s UI solution Autodesk Scaleform, the Autodesk Kynapse AI middleware, and Autodesk HumanIK for interactive character animation. Nintendo also signed a deal which would see Havok’s Physics and Animation middleware being available for Wii U development as well. Thanks: Edge, Gamasutra.
