Nintendo has announced its plans to unveil projects that can only be made possible with the Wii U GamePad at E3 next month. During its financial results briefing today, the company reconfirmed that the touch-screen controller’s quick start menu function will be available to Wii U owners either before or during summer.
“At the Corporate Management Policy Briefing this January, I explained that the company would prioritize making and proposing Wii U software titles that can only be made possible with the Wii U GamePad,” said Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. “We are planning to disclose our progress on this at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) in Los Angeles in June.
“I also mentioned at the Corporate Management Policy Briefing this January the quick start menu. The integration of this feature is almost complete, and this is how it will actually work on the Wii U system. We will deliver this update to Wii U owners when we update the Wii U hardware either before or during summer.”
