Street Fighter X Tekken producer Yoshinori Ono has said the Wii U first shown off at E3 last June isn't an accurate reflection of what Nintendo's new console will offer upon release.
Speaking to 3D Juegos (translated on NeoGaf), he teased: "What we saw last E3 is not a reflection of everything this console is able to offer. We have been trying the development kits and some of its new characteristics will improve its possibilities. It isn't something like Kinect or similar accessories, it's something different.
"I can't tell you more about it because, if I do, Nintendo will send assassins to finish me!" Ono added. "But let's say that Wii U will be a console with so many and unique possibilities that it will be difficult to show them in the box they are going to sell it or to be published by magazines and other mediums."
Yesterday an anonymous developer claimed Wii U will have around twice the processing and graphical power of Xbox 360.
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata today reiterated that Wii U will be available in Japan, Europe and the US by the end of 2012.
