Of all the Wii U games confirmed so far, there probably isn't one that uses the GamePad better than Rayman Legends. Perhaps one reason is because Ubisoft's Michel Ancel loves it. Indeed, he thinks it's even better than you think it is!
Ancel eulogised about the Wii U controller in the latest issue of Nintendo Power, saying that the main reason why developers are able to use it for clever ideas in games is because the response time is so good. In fact, he thinks, Nintendo's rivals have something to worry about.
"I think this is where Nintendo is really out in front of things," said Ancel. "The technology inside the controller is quite a bit more advanced than what people might think. It's really responsive The response time is crazy, in fact, and I think the competitors will need some time to [get their solutions] this responsive."
He added: "It's crazy because the game is running in full HD [on the television], we are streaming another picture on the GamePad screen, and it's still 60 frames per second. And the latency on the controller is just 1/60 of a second, so it's one frame late. It's crazy, it's so fast. It's almost instant. That's why it responds so well. So it can be used as a real game-design thing."
Pity we won't be able to play Ancel's first Wii U game until next year as Rayman Legends has been delayed until 2013.
