Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has reiterated that Nintendo haven’t given up on the Wii and that the company still has a few surprises in store for consumers.
Despite the lack of quality first party titles announced for Wii Satoru Iwata has promised that there’s more unannounced games on the horizon for the Nintendo Wii which will presumably be shown off at this years E3 event in June.
“We have not released any new Nintendo software titles for Wii, except for The Last Story (Japanese Title) in January, partly because we have focused on the launch of Nintendo 3DS since the beginning of this year,” Iwata said during an earnings briefing yesterday.
“Therefore, some in Japan seem to have the misunderstanding that Nintendo has given up making efforts on Wii. We are actually ready to release new Wii software titles every month from May to the end of this year.”
“Other new titles currently unannounced will be ready to be launched within this year,” he said. “Before the launch of the Wii successor, we will be aiming at creating other excitement for Wii in Japan, which has a large installed base of Wii hardware.”
