Early this week we reported that Sony licensed the NVIDIA PhysX engine for the Sony PS3. Today NVIDIA announced that the PhysX SDK is also available on the Nintendo Wii.
NVIDIA has been approved as a third party tools solution provider for the Wii console. As a result, the NVIDIA PhysX technology SDK is now available to registered Wii developers.
The NVIDIA PhysX software development kit (SDK) consists of a full-featured API and robust physics engine, designed to give developers, animators, level designers, and artists unprecedented creative control over character and object physical interactions by allowing them to author scalable physics in real time.
The PhysX SDK for the Wii console, and all major gaming platforms, are available for license directly from NVIDIA.
