It should come as much of a surprise, but Nintendo doesn’t plan to launch the Wii U next Spring. Instead, the company has announced they’ll officially unveil the Wii U’s “final format” at E3 2012.
Nintendo is also taking the “yawn heard ’round the world” that was the 3DS launch to heart. Company President Satoru Iwata told investors at a recent financial briefing: “As we learned a bitter lesson with the launch of the Nintendo 3DS, we are trying to take every possible measure so that the Wii U will have a successful launch.”
The Wii U’s launch is still scheduled to place during Nintendo’s next fiscal year, which runs from April 1, 2013 through March 31, 2013.
