One unanswered question has been lingering in the air since Nintendo’s big coming out party for the Wii U last week: How will the online infrastructure be an improvement over past Nintendo consoles (if at all)? Developers must know, right? Well, apparently not.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 director Katsuhiro Harada didn’t sound like he had confidence in Nintendo’s new online system, during a roundtable interview at Namco Bandai HQ. When asked about how the Wii U's online infrastructure will compare to that offered on 360/PS3, Harada responded:

Not quite sure at this point. I don't fully understand it. We’re still working with Nintendo to find out about their network.

With a US release of November 18, it's hard to believe this response. Harada emphasized that the netcode will be as solid as those of competing systems, but it's still a mystery how players will connect and play online. He also wouldn't confirm whether the Wii U exclusive modes will be playable online.

Impressions: Killer Instinct: Fulgore

Double Helix's first season of Killer Instinct is over, and here to close it all out is Fulgore, which makes eight total characters in the mix. While only two more fighters have come post-launch, they make a huge difference in terms of the meta-game, and help change things up considerably. Spinal was a nice addition for sure, but Fulgore ups the stakes considerably.more
