Nintendo has revealed that a number of Wii games are on the backburner while the company focuses on its handheld output. So far, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword seems to be the only console title worth thinking about, but the company promised more are coming. 

"We've had to effectively prepare for the launch of 3DS as well as effectively prepare for the launch of Pokémon Black and Pokémon White," said that juicy beefboy, Reggie Fils-Aime. "Candidly, we've pushed out some Wii launches so that we can focus on our handheld business. We're already juggling two big balls. To add a third would be a little bit challenging.

"We're waiting to space things out and let Pokémon Black and Pokémon White and Nintendo 3DS live and breath out there. But there's content coming. And we'll be sharing more certainly in the weeks ahead. We'll be bringing some content out before E3, and then certainly at E3 we'll be sharing more news."

So ... it's all agreed that we'll ignore the actual content of this news post to focus on the fact that Reggie Fils-Aime said he's juggling two big balls, right? Good!
