0

Nintendo have plans to bring the MonoGame Framework to Wii U, Siliconera has learned. MonoGame is an open source implementation of the Microsoft XNA 4.x Framework, and has been used in the development of games like Bastion, Fez and Skulls of the Shogun.

 

Like Unity, the goal of the MonoGame Framework is to enable developers to efficiently create cross-platform games while re-using code. Monogame currently supports iOS, Android, Windows (with both DirectX and OpenGL solutions), Linux, Mac OS X, Windows Phone 8, PlayStation Mobile and Ouya.
