Scirra are proud to officially announce upcoming support for Nintendo’s Wii U™ system. Nintendo-authorised developers will be able to create and self-publish games on the Nintendo eShop using Construct 2, the leading HTML5 game creation tool. This is a tremendously exciting step towards making game development for major consoles faster, easier and available to a wider audience of developers than ever before. It's also a sign of the strength of HTML5 as a console-grade game development platform and the cross-platform breadth of web technologies.

Construct 2 takes advantage of the Nintendo Web Framework (https://wiiu-developers.nintendo.com/) enabling both new and existing games to easily port to Wii U, taking advantage of Construct 2's unrivalled high-performance and feature-rich HTML5 2D game engine. Engineering work is currently being done to make sure everything is running smoothly, and an initial release of Construct 2 with Wii U support will be made available to authorised developers soon.

Developers will need to become Nintendo Authorised Developers before being able to use Construct 2's new Wii U support. Developers can apply to become authorised developers at https://wiiu-developers.nintendo.com/signup/. Please note that a Wii U development kit will be necessary to test your game works with the Wii U system before publishing. Developers will also need at least a Construct 2 Personal license (or Business license where necessary) to export for Wii U. Licenses can be purchased from the Scirra Store (https://www.scirra.com/store/construct-2).

The Wii U will be the fifteenth platform supported by Construct 2, and Scirra will continue their mission of making game development fast, easy and accessible at a low cost with a high-quality game editor and cross-platform engine. Continuing our policy of "all platforms for one price", Wii U support will also be made available to all existing Construct 2 license owners at no extra charge.
