Fils-Aime: Wii will “coexist side by side beside the Wii U”, more games to come

There is still plenty of life left with the Wii and it will continue to coexist alongside the Wii U, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has stated.

“Well, it is certainly true that the Wii is not over”, Fils-Aime reiterates. “I was the one who was asked the question originally, and I think some comments were taken out of context. So, 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.”

Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata previously stated that fans would have to wait until E3 2012 before the company would unveil the “final format” of the company’s new home console.
