Just because Nintendo is nearly ready to show off a new console doesn't mean incumbent home console the Wii is dead and buried. President Satoru Iwata is keen to keep the console alive, telling investors there are new games on the way every month of this year, with some unannounced titles too.
In Japan, Nintendo has only published one new Wii game this year — Mistwalker RPG The Last Story — but has new games planned every month from now until the end of the year, and not just ones we know about either.
Other new titles currently unannounced will be ready to be launched within this year. Before the launch of the Wii successor, we will be aiming at creating other excitement for Wii in Japan, which has a large installed base of Wii hardware.
Expect these games to be unveiled at what could be Wii's final E3 appearance.
