Conduit developer High Voltage has claimed that the Nintendo 3DS is more powerful than the Wii in some ways.
High Voltage is currently working on a game for 3DS and the company’s creative director Matt Torso is impressed with the new handheld console.
“In some ways, it’s even more powerful than the Wii,” Corso told HDWarriors. “The amount of power dedicated to the small screen opens a lot of possibilities, and the shading and texture ability is superior.”
High Voltage Producer Keith Hladik even admitted was surprised by the power of the console: “From our internal testing we have been incredibly surprised at what the little system can do,” said Hladik.
“From a strictly visual point-of-view, it is impressive. We are able to pull off many advanced lighting and texture techniques much more easily than on the Wii.
“That doesn’t mean that there isn’t a cost to doing them, only that they can be done more easily.”
Hladik added that the company is working on a number of games for 3DS. “We do have 3DS kits, we are working on a number of different ideas, and we are definitely excited about what this system means to the industry.”
