Wii games delayed to focus on 3DS, Pokemon

Nintendo says it has been 'juggling two big balls' but hasn't forgotten Wii

With Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword currently the only big Wii game on the horizon, many have been predicting the end for Nintendo's home console, but Nintendo's US boss has insisted that Wii still has a bright future with more games coming after E3.

According to Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo has been concentrating on the Pokemon Black and White and 3DS launches before switching its attention back to Wii.


"We've had to effectively prepare for the launch of 3DS as well as effectively prepare for the launch of Pokemon Black and Pokemon White," the exec told IGN.

"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."

According to Fils-Aime, there'll be more content before and after E3 in June. "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."

Aside from Skyward Sword, there's also that new Pokémon Wii game that Satoru Iwata talked about recently.
