Keiji Inafune has said despite not having had a chance to get his hands on Wii U, he is confident “it must be impressive.”

Speaking with Gamespot, Inafune said he is interested in trying it out though as he “always wants to try out creating for a new platform.”

“I’m looking forward to that chance,” he said. “he same thing could go for the Wii U because it’s part of the challenge in evolution, and it’s a challenge in motion control. It’s in that testing stage, so I’m really interested.

“I can’t comment too much about it because I haven’t touched it yet, but whenever Nintendo comes out with something new, it’s always good.”

Inafune also said he looking forward to announcing “big collaborations” with developers and others people may not expect, and it doesn’t “necessarily have to be games.”

“Because I’m on my own and away from my past life, I want to do whatever I couldn’t do before in my former responsibilities,” he said. “So I really want you to stay tuned and we really want to announce big collaborations.”

This includes his former employer Capcom as well, which he said he wants to collaborate with.

“Of we came up with a collaboration with Capcom, that would surprise you as well, right? It’s not on my list right now, but it could happen,” he said.
