Reggie Fils-Aime says no Wii successor on the way anytime soon photo



Everybody's favorite meat ambassador, Reggie Fils-Aime, has spoken about the future of the Nintendo Wii in an interview with Reuters, quelling rumors that Nintendo is already whipping up a console to take the Wii's place on the throne:

We believe the role of a new console, a new system, is to bring great new entertainment ideas to life. We launched (the Wii and DS) those systems when we had great ideas that would benefit either from a touch screen or from a Wii remote.

Fils-Aime went on to say that Nintendo would consider the launch of a new console when they had "great new entertaining ideas that can only be done with a new console." Of course, anyone with a half a brain about the way the industry works can guess that something stinks here; any successful organization is always planning towards the future. Nintendo are hardly the type of company to rest on their laurels, now are they?

Darn! Sounds like Zelda Wii U won't be out this year

Arguably the biggest Wii U game of the year, Zelda, won't release in 2015 after all. Or, at least, Nintendo is "no longer making a 2015 release [its] number one priority," to put it another way. In a video update, producer E...more
