Be aware the above article makes it sound like you might still need a WiiU dev kit. But still this is awesome!!!

Another bit below:

I'm 100% you will need to be properly licensed with Nintendo to produce WiiU games. This includes the Devkit that comes with it.

I wonder if Super UBI land might have been what kickstarted(snicker) the idea for Nintendo to work on HTML5 game developement options.

Keep in mind it looks like they still require you to have game development experience - as in, previously released games. Ubi land had that, but not many other devs here can really say the same :/

I'm sure you'll still need the dev kit, but I think they're getting much more lenient on their requirements. They've already broken on their "must have an office" bullet point. Maybe they're moving in a more indie friendly direction. Again, all wishful thinking until GDC.

I remember them saying they were planning on allowing HTML5 stuff, and just the other day IGN reported they dropped the "must have an office" requirement. They also dropped their thresholds of units shipped/sold before getting paid--you get paid from sale #1 now. I hope it doesn't turn out to be a pipe dream, but Wii U support with C2 would be unbelievable.

BTW, if they do it, we need to make teams here to crank some stuff out.

@notiongames

well let us know when you have your devkit and license. While I know there are a lot in the NDA. I'm sure letting us know if their Nintendo Web Framework is a wrapper like technology or a custom browser will be ok :)

@Notiongames thanks for the link, this is awesome news. Now it seems the only mysteries are the state of performance and whether html5 games will enjoy the same exposure as the rest.

Alright guys, news just coming in from GDC. Here is a snapshot from the Framework. Apparently Canvas games will be supported, this is very exciting! https://twitter.com/DaveVoyles/status/317024893193564160/photo/1Animate2013-03-27 22:12:43
