With the recent release of the Nintendo 3DS a lot of the attention that has been going the company’s way has revolved around their portable games console. We have some news however that involves talks of a possible new version to their Wii console.
As we previously brought to your attention how essential it is that Nintendo bring out a next generation console in order to compete with other similar console manufacturers in the market, we can now reveal that a Wii 2 is set to debut later this year at E3 2011 in June.
This is according to EA Games Frank Gibeau who suggested to IndustryGamers that the company ‘is coming back with a second act.’ He insists Nintendo are not stupid and are aware of the decline in sales their console has so will inevitably bring out a new model this year.
The company is yet to reveal any specs about a so called Wii 2 and have talked down rumors of a Wii replacement despite what Gibeau is suggesting. You can read full details about what else was said by clicking the link above.
What do you think of these suggestions? Will we be seeing a Wii 2 this year? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
