Former Crytek employee now working for Nintendo

It seems that Nintendo is really getting serious about HD game development not just in higher resolution games but also in graphic designs and engines.

Mark Atkinson was the former Chief Technology Officer at Crytek and helped develop CryEngine 3 and has now been recently hired by Nintendo. This is a strong move since it will cement to other developers that Nintendo really is serious this time when it comes to having the latest and greatest tech running on their machine and, for at least one year, the most powerful console on the market.

It makes you wonder what kind of games that use CryEngine 3 will we be seeing on the Wii U in the not too distant future? The possibilities are endless, but I'm willing to bet we'll see something at E3 running on this new er Engine to go along with Unreal Engine 3 (UE4 too?) of course.

Thats good news. I played Crytek 2 on PC at my mates house it was intense. Hopefully we will see something in that quality for Zelda or Metroid.
