All Havok tools now available on Wii U

The full set of Havok middleware tools is now available to Wii U developers with today's release of the Havok Vision Engine on the platform, the company announced.

Havok released free binaries of its physics and animation tools on Wii U last March. Wii U developers can now also purchase source licenses for Havok's variety of middleware — Havok Physics, Animation, AI, Behavior, Destruction, Cloth, Script and Vision.

"We have shared a long-term partnership with Nintendo and are pleased to offer licensing of our entire product suite for Wii U developers worldwide," said Brian Waddle, Havok's vice president of sales and marketing, in a press release announcing the availability.

Existing Havok-powered Wii U games include Assassin's Creed 3, Darksiders 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
