Over on Gamasutra there is a very interesting feature, talking with Denny Thorley of Day 1 Studios - the developer of MechAssault, the popular series that is normally associated with Microsoft, but which is coming to the DS in the near future. Below is a direct quote from Thorley, featured in the article:
"We've just signed non-disclosures with Nintendo. We're going to be looking at their hardware very carefully. We're not doing Mech games, but there's lots of opportunity there for creative stuff."
Thorley also mentions how he thinks that the lower price of the Wii in comparison to the XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3 is extremely attractive, especially since it is expected that development costs will be significantly reduced as well. Currently Day 1 has no direct experience with the Wii, yet their engineers are right now in the process of evaluating how well their toolset will work with the new platform.
If Day 1 definitely jumps on-board with development, then Nintendo's chances of reclaiming a significant market share will certainly be increased. For the whole feature, please click here.
