10 devs have returned their kits to nintendo.

According to Avalanche, there was no contact from Nintendo and themselves, so there was no incentive to develop. Apparently this is common among third party developers and could be the reason that Wii U owners are not seeing DLC for popular titles. It was announced that Injustice: Gods Among Us will receive DLC support this summer after several weeks of radio silence, but according to developer NetherRealm Studios, thatís because Nintendo wasnít talking to them about how to distribute the DLC.

We wonít know until more step forward, but itís interesting to see the behind the scenes with Nintendo and third-party developers. If these rumors are true, Nintendo is going to have to step up the ball and treat third-party developers better than this

If this is true...I guess its not the devs fault after all.

though Avalanche was also called out on being unable to contact Nintendo by Wayforward who have no problems. Conclusion: Avalanche are a bunch of lazy liars.

I'm pretty sure that if they come up with some nice ideas and sketches to present to Nintendo that Nintendo is more than willing to help. It seems like most developers that aren't developing for the Wii U expect Nintendo to beg them to develop games for it along with some bags of money.

Meanwhile, the 3rd parties that have created games for the Wii U have all received support from Nintendo and they even said it in several interviews.

It also says in the article that some of the dev kits were UNTOUCHED.
How will the developers know how to develop for the WiiU if they dont even try.

That's not true at all, most of the third parties that have developed for wiiU have stopped. The only one that I can remember going on record saying they received support is bayonnetta devs and Nintendo practically owns them at this point.

Why should they try? Give me one good reason why a third party develop should put a game on wiiU.
