Will The Wii U Support 3D HDTVs?

In an interview with Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, Mercury News asked if the Wii U would provide support for 3D displays.

Iwata’s answer may surprise you… but it probably won’t.

“If you are going to connect Wii U with a home TV capable of displaying 3-D images, technologically, yes, it is going to be possible, but that’s not the area we are focusing on.

“When it comes to 3-D, we already have the 3DS, and each owner of the Nintendo 3DS is capable of viewing 3-D images. However, when it comes to the home console, it depends upon the availability of 3-D TV sets at home, which, unfortunately, is not expanding enough. And rather than pouring a lot of energy into that kind of area, with the Wii U we’d like to focus more on each Wii U owner being able to have an equal opportunity to enjoy it.”

So, sure, the Wii U will support 3D HDTVs – just not in actual 3D. I’m sure this comes as a surprise to no one, but at least there it is as answer.
