Well, there is The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. That is a Wii game, a big one. Oh, and there's a Kirby game coming. But after that, it's... a void. There is a reason for this, says Nintendo.
According to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, one reason for the skimpy Wii line-up is that the company had to prepare for the launch of Pokémon: Black and White and the Nintendo 3DS.
Never mind that Pokémon: Black and White isn't developed by Nintendo Co Ltd. It's developed by Tokyo-based second-party developer Game Freak. So Fils-Aime is essentially saying that Nintendo could not make any more Wii games because it was busy publishing a Pokémon game? Really?
The other excuse is that Nintendo was readying the 3DS launch, which is much more comprehendible, even if it does end up sounding like Nintendo is totally unable to walk and chew gum at the same time. "Candidly, we've pushed out some Wii launches so we can focus on our handheld business," says Fils-Aime. "Because for us, we're already juggling two big balls; you know, to add a third would be a little bit challenging or a fourth or a fifth."
Still, Fils-Aime does say that Nintendo will be bringing out content before E3, and then at E3, the company will be sharing "more news". Wii owners hope that means more Wii games.
How about this: the reason why Nintendo is slowing down the number of titles for the Wii is because the company will be unveiling a new console at this year's E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles? That makes way more sense.
