X-bit Labs reports Nintendo plans to continue to support its Wii console even after the Wii U's launch.
"The Wii U has to deliver a differentiated experience that can only be brought to bear through the use of these two screens. If all we do is a beautiful game in HD, it's been done before. We have to take advantage of the second screen, we need to take advantage of the connectivity that the system will offer and, if we do that, we believe that we will yet again disrupt the market the same way we with DS and Wii," said Reggie Fils-Aime, the president of Nintendo America, in an interview with Games Blog web-site.
"It is certainly true that the Wii is not over. [...] What I can say is that there certainly will be more games launched for the Wii. And what I can say is that we believe there are still millions more systems to be sold. And I can say that the Wii will coexist side by side beside the Wii U for some period of time," concluded Mr. Fils-Aime.
