In a new interview with Jeremy Greiner, Creative Manager at Vigil Games, more interesting comments were made on the Wii U and it's potential with Darksiders II:
“If I didn’t have a strict gag order on me, I’d love to talk about all the great features that we have,” Jeremy tells us, “but what I can tell you is that it’s a next generation platform, and you should keep your eyes open.
“We’ll obviously be using the unique controller that it has to its utmost potential, but speaking to specific features or tech effects… well, that’s in Nintendo’s playground right now. And I know that they have plans for E3.”
So here we have another developer calling the Wii U a next generation system, not on par or the same as current HD systems. What has my attention is the last two sentences of the interview, it's been a very along time that Nintendo actually talked tech specs/features at E3. The Nintendo 64 was probably the last time that Nintendo released a monster console so far advanced of the competition that tech talk was begged to be discussed.
Also if you look at Nintendo's already planned E3 agenda , you'll see that a developer discussion with the Wii U's hardware producer is going to take place in the late evening after the E3 press conference and this will most likely consist of all the tech talk everyone has been waiting to hear.
These hints are nice, but it will be best when Nintendo shows everything on their own terms at E3.
