Nintendo has once again discussed its upcoming Wii U home console and revealed that the device, thanks to its GamePad controller, could work perfectly with hardcore games like Call of Duty.
Nintendo showed off the Wii U at this month’s E3 2012
press conference and even presented a variety of games for it, including plenty of core titles ranging from Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition to ZombiU.
The Wii U is perfect for plenty of other serious games, according to Nintendo of America’s marketing executive Scott Moffitt, who told GameSpot that the Wii U can be used to enhance a variety of experiences.
"Core gamers are very much part of our audience and the group of consumers we hope will find the way you can re-imagine games on the Wii U," Moffitt said. "The Wii U could become the preferred way to play those games for some of the core gamers."
Some of the games that could benefit from the Wii U’s features include shooters like Call of Duty, according to the Nintendo executive.
"You can imagine how a game like Call of Duty would work on the Wii U - the GamePad will allow you to declutter the TV and pull gaming items like maps down and not interrupt your interaction and enjoy the cinematic quality of the game on the TV. That's one application that could be exciting and could enhance gameplay for a core gamer."
As of yet, a Call of Duty game for the Nintendo Wii U hasn’t been confirmed
, but it’s heavily rumored that the upcoming Black Ops II is going to be launched on the new home console, not just on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, in November.
Until an official confirmation appears, however, expect Nintendo to continue hyping up the Wii U’s capabilities.
