Yuji Naka wants a Wii U development kit

Prope Logo

Yuji Naka, the creator of Sonic (who has since left Sega to start Prope), expressed his interest in developing something for the Wii U in an interview with Siliconera. Asked if he had a dev kit for the console, he answered:

I don’t have a development kit right now. [Laughs.] Please ask Nintendo to send me one! Or maybe Bandai Namco Games can send me one. I would really like a chance to play with that hardware. Right now there probably aren’t many development kits.

The fact that he doesn’t have a kit yet means that there’s no way Yuji or his team are working on any Wii U projects right now; but from his enthusiastic tone, it seems clear that he is quite excited about the system. Perhaps he’s got an awesome idea for utilizing the touchscreen controller, just waiting to be unleashed? Only time will tell.
