The Wii successor is real! Today, Nintendo released a memo regarding the matter. The next generation console of Nintendo will be revealed at E3 in June. It will be demoed and lucky people will be able to get their hands on this during the event. It will be released sometime next year. Here is the full statement via nintendoworldreport.
To whom it may concern:
Re: Wii's successor systemNintendo Co., Ltd. has decided to launch in 2012 a system to succeed Wii, which the company has sold 86.01 million units on a consolidated shipment basis between its launch in 2006 and the end of March 2011.
We will show a playable model of the new system and announce more specifications at the E3 Expo, which will be held June 7-9, 2011, in Los Angeles.
Sales of the new system have not been included in the financial forecasts announced today for the fiscal term ending March 2012.
Oh how I wish to attend the event. I'm pretty much jealous to those who can go. Sigh.
