Tekken Tag Tournament 2 producer Katsuhiro Harada has expressed his thoughts on the Nintendo Wii U and revealed that the console’s unique controller, the GamePad, can be quite distracting when playing a fighting game.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is set to appear this September for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and later this year for the Wii U, when it’ll be eventually released by Nintendo.
While some developers have praised the Wii U’s special GamePad, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada begs to differ, as he believes that a second screen can be distracting when playing intense fighting games.
"Looking at the small screen and the big screen at the same time is pretty distracting for a fighting game. So we're thinking of making it useful as a way of having shortcuts," he told Eurogamer
. "Or, by making progressing through the game more convenient. Or by playing alone on the GamePad screen."
Nintendo is banking big on the special features of the Wii U GamePad but it seems that some developers will barely use the touchscreen controller. Will you find yourself enjoying the device or just using as a regular controller?
