Go Vacation producer shares controller ideas for a Wii U sequel
Masaya Kobayashi, known for his work on the Ridge Racer series and the Wii’s Go Vacation, has shared his thoughts on how the Wii U might accommodate a potential Go Vacation sequel. He sees the touchscreen controller as a device better suited towards the couch, ideal for complementing more active gameplay by other players.
Here’s a quick idea, for example – I imagine if kids are going to be playing on the big TV to play a casual game, the parents might be in the background using the tablet controller. The kids are having fun moving and bouncing around, but sometimes adults don’t really want to move around that much. So the parents can support the kids by clicking icons on the controller, or something.
Specifically, he mentioned the possibilities of using the controller as a “camera device” to take in-game pictures, and as a racing wheel.
