As part of an interview with NowGamer, TT Fusion’s lead dev on Lego City Undercover, Loz Doyle, says that the company has no interest in creating a Skylanders-style Lego game that uses toys and the Wii U GamePad’s NFC chip. The Wii U controller has a built-in NFC chip which allows toys and cards to be scanned into a game. Skylanders uses the same technology with its mini figures and its portal peripheral.
"It's not something we're looking at right now, no," he told NowGamer.
Nintendo claims that it is working on several NFC titles and Disney is working on a Skylanders-style game called Disney Universe.
The full interview with NowGamer will be published later today.
