Platinum Games Wants Multi Touch For Wii U


Hideki Kamiya, of platinum games, tweeted recently that the one thing he would change for the Wii U is the lack of a multi touch screen.  With his work on the Wonderful 101, a game where the player draws shapes on the screen to attack enemies, there is no doubt that he might have had some plans for multi touch attacks, or possible the ability to attack multiple enemies at once.

What are your thoughts on multi touch for the Wii U (cost aside, since we do not know how much it could possibly add to the console)?  Personally, I think it is a great idea.
