Nintendo announces Wii 2 and, er, that's it
The Wii 2 is coming! That is the end of this story, pretty much.
Nintendo have revealed that they’ll be unveiling the thing at E3 in June but that it won’t go on sale until 2012. Which means that there’ll be a huge rubber-band ball made from Wii 2 rumours floating around the cybersphere between now and then. So, here’s our own contribution to it…
- The console sequel won’t have a conventional controller, nor will it have some kind of Kinect-type control method. Games will be played for you in a remote location, often by teams of prisoners, and all you’ll have to do is sit back and watch.
- The Wii 2 will still work if you pour pop in it.
- The Wii 2 will have a TV-viewing mode – thanks to a special filter, all your favourite shows will star Wii Mii icons instead of humans. So far, Nintendo UK have only done Dot Cotton and John Virgo, but say they’ll have the rest ready for 2012.
Feel free to add your own half-arsed speculation underneath...
