Soon to be stamped on Wii 2 boxes?

We're just one hour away from Nintendo's E3 2011 press conference and Epic Games CEO Mark Rein has dropped a small hint that his company might be bringing support to Nintendo platforms for the first time.

Rein tweeted:

We have another pretty cool announcement coming today at around 10AM PST

Nintendo's press conference will be on its way to winding down by that point, and with the company likely to finish by showing off its new console we could see Epic bringing Unreal Engine 3 to Wii 2, paving the way for games that look as good as Gears of War 3 and its ilk.
