French site Nintendotown has posted a new batch of Wii U rumours, one of which is rather plausible due to previous comments made by Nintendo.
First up is the rumour that a new Metroid is in the works for the console and is being built using Unreal Engine 3. This is plausible, and the site says a tech demo of the game was shown in cooperation with Nintendo’s Retro Studios. At least, that is what we gleaned from the Google translation.
Another rumour the site noted which was posted on Adweek, was that Nintendo is in talks with various partners regarding video on demand services. Wii owners can already watch Netflix offerings on the console, but this rumour implies a built-in application on the console’s dashboard similar to Xbox 360 and PS3. Like the aforementioned rumour, this one is definitely plausible considering Nintendo has been hinting around at such content. Still, the firm has been a bit evasive so expect to hear more about the UI and apps at E3.
The final rumour posted in this little round-up was in relation to news the firm has integrated Android OS on Wii U. This one, we’re not really sure about, and honestly find it extremely far-fetched. Then again, in the world of gaming news, nothing really surprises us anymore.
That is the latest rumours. For me, the Metroid one is far more interesting as I buy a games console to play games. This could be a very special Metroid we will see. However, the unlikely one about Android OS is probably a good talking point. I don't do Android, so it means nothing to me. Does it many anything to you? Does it matter or would it be an awesome addition if true?
