Nintendo To Allow HTML5 Games on Wii U and 3DS

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Mar 25, 2013 7:13 pm

I was reading an article over at Gamasutra and found the following quote from Nintendo's Indie Liason, Dan Adelman, very interesting: "GDC we're going to be talking about some new tools we're rolling out for developers to use HTML5 and JavaScript to make games."

I feel like this would be a huge opportunity for the Construct 2 community.

Here's the article Gamasutra Article

The source seems reputable. I think GDC is this week so we should be seeing how much truth there is in it. I, for one, am keeping my fingers crossed.

Nintendo has already announced that they were going to start supporting HTML5 and JavaScript-based games on the wii u earlier, so it is true. However I'm not sure that extends to the 3DS I think it might be wii u only.

Interesting to hear what they announce, if anything. If possible we will make a Wii U exporter!

It would be pretty awesome if Nintendo created an HTML5/JS wrapper :P

Great article! Even motivational! The interesting part of the tech marriage between Counstruct 2 and Nintendo's e-Shop would be if we as designers/developers have to use the Nintendo's dev kit up to certain extent. Having a 100% exporter to Wii U with all the functionality of that console's controls would be awesome!!! jegcelorio2013-03-25 21:51:40

I wonder how hard it would be to implement dual screen controls within Construct. But this could all be very wishful thinking and I'll wait to see what Nintendo has to say at GDC. I just know that the potential of this happening with my having no programming knowledge makes "7 Year Old Me" do cartwheels.

A member of the Cleveland Game Developer's Group just put up a photo of a Nintendo booth that reads Nintendo Web Framework.
