    A new batch of Wii U rumors!

    [​IMG]

    French site Nintendotown has posted a series of Wii U rumors. Some of them are very plausible!

    French site Nintendotown has posted a series of new "Wii U rumors".

    * The first one says that a new Metroid is in the works for the console and is being built using Unreal Engine 3. Apparently, a tech demo was shown in cooperation with Nintendo’s Retro Studios.

    * The other one was also posted on Adweek, and it says Nintendo is in talks with various partners regarding video on demand services.

    * And finally, there is another saying that Nintendo has integrated Android OS on Wii U (apparently, it could go on the tablet controller). This one sounds a lot unlikely, however, anything could happen!

    There you go! Expect official news about the Wii U at the upcoming E3, which is getting closer and closer!

      as i (and you) said, no one cares about about a game using the unreal engine, the news here (if true) is that metroid is going to use it.

      Sounds great to me. Nintendo should run a custom Android on all its devices, and Sony should run Android on its next PSP.

      New Metroid game sounds awesome as well!
