With the latest rumor that the top Wii games may come out late next year, Nintendo’s man with the plan, Reggie Fils-Aime, promises that no Wii drought will ever take place while he’s in control. Speaking with Newsweek, Reggie had this to say:
The second example I point out is Metroid Prime 3, which is a from-the-ground-up creation of Metroid for the Wii system. That title is going to come out early in 2007. That will give us fantastic momentum coming off of the launch, and will certainly be an example of how there will be no new game drought for this system.
The third example I would give you is Mario Galaxy, another from-the-ground-up Wii game that we are strategically timing the launch to make sure that we continue driving momentum through 2007. So N’Gai, how do I answer the question, “Will there be no drought,” and “How will we make sure that there are fantastic titles for Wii?” The answer is Zelda, Metroid and Mario. Which is a pretty darn good lineup.
There you go. Reggie has promised that the Wii will not suffer from GameCube-itis. Happy now, all you Nintendo haters?
