With the Wii U launching this past Sunday, Nintendo has revealed that it is not currently working on any first-party games for the new console’s predecessor, the Wii.
Speaking to GameStop, Nintendo of America’s director of product marketing, Bill Trinen, succinctly responded, “No, there are not right now” after being asked whether or not the Big N was developing any Wii titles internally.
Trinen said that the company will focus more on certain special offers and bonus content for the Wii, rather than completely new games.
“Wii itself is really interesting because there are so many people who have that system and know what that system is that there's still a lot of opportunity for software sales on Wii.,“ Trinen explained. “A lot of that consumer is somebody who is looking for…good games. So whether it's things like Nintendo Selects or a lot of the users also are still using their Wii to deliver Netflix content. I think there's also the potential for a lot of people who still haven't purchased Wii, believe it or not, who might be interested at the right price. So we'll probably be looking at it more from that standpoint.”
