Havok, the company responsible for the popular Havok Physics engine, has announced that it is partnering with Nintendo to make its technology available for Wii U. This agreement means that Havok Physics and Havok Animation technologies will be made available to any studios developing content for Wii U.
“We are very excited to be at the forefront of the new platform,” said David Coghlan, Managing Director of Havok. “We are honored to be providing Havok technology to Wii U developers in order to create great games in all genres. Gamers around the world expect high-fidelity realism and want to immerse themselves into new gaming experiences… We are sure this license agreement will result in the creation of great interactive experiences for consumers on the Wii U platform!”
I’ve never heard of any other popular physics engines, so I should hope that Nintendo would license it. I’m still wondering exactly what the system is capable of.
