New, 10 comments

Nintendo is working on more games that will feature cross-platform functionality with consoles from other manufacturers, the company confirmed with VG247.

"We can confirm that cross-platform functionality is possible in certain titles that play on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, as well as other video game systems not made by Nintendo," a representative said in a statement. "We are committed to helping developers realise the full potential of their software on Nintendo systems."

The company went on to list confirmed titles that feature cross-play, such as Disney Interactive Studios' Disney Infinity, Three Sprockets' Cubeman 2 and Ripstone's Pure Chess, stating that additional games using the functionality are in development.

Ripstone's creative director Phil Gaskell revealed last week that Nintendo agreed to allow cross-platform play functionality for its upcoming title, Pure Chess, allowing Wii U players to play against someone else on a different console. Ripstone, developer of Knytt Underground, is set launch Pure Chess on Wii U, 3DS, iOS and Android devices.
