Despite the ongoing iron-curtain of secrecy placed around the Wii U's tech spec, Crytek co-founder Avni Yerli has given the console his approval saying its "specs are very good."

Yerli reportedly gave the console his approval late last week in an interview with commenting:

"The Wii U specs are very good... The system's unique interface is however a challenge for designers... But once thought through it can add value, and that's what ultimately important. Our guys in Nottingham (Crytek UK) are very happy with their tests on the dev kits and they're excited about it."

The news adds to the growing speculation surrounding Nintendo's new console's exact tech spec. Unveiled all the way back at 2011's E3, the company still hasn't released any solid information regarding the Wii U's graphical prowess.

The lack of official information has led to numerous conflicting reports from games industry sources regarding the Wii U's spec. In keeping with its previous silence policy, Nintendo has not released any official statement regarding the new claims.
