Project Cars Wii U ‘Screams Innovation’, Gamepad Use Is ‘No-Brainer’
Project Cars on Wii U will make use of the console’s Gamepad controller, thanks to the fact it ‘screams new innovations’, says the game’s lead developer.
The game, which will ‘likely’ run at 720p 30fps, will take advantage of the unique controller of Nintendo’ latest home console.
Slightly Mad Studios Creative Director Andy Tudor told NowGamer: “The gamepad just screams new innovations for gameplay and is a perfect match when thinking about using the gyroscope as a handheld wheel like in Mario Kart Wii and showing data on the screen such as a map, telemetry, speedo, or rear view mirror.
“When you couple that with Miiverse functionality and community it’s a no-brainer.”
The crowd-funded game, which is also in development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, is looking to push each platform to its limits.
Tudor continued: “Honestly, each has their own advantages: the PC will always benefit from the most bleeding edge processors and graphics cards but the Wii U has brand-new ways of interacting via the Gamepad, and the PS3/Xbox 360 versions continue to push those machines to their very limits whilst hooking in to already-popular systems like PSN and Xbox Live.
“So no one single platform wins I’m afraid!”
