Don’t expect to play Wii U during the first six months of 2012. The next-gen Nintendo console will not see release until after June next year, according to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, speaking during the company’s quarterly fiscal call today.
“We would like to show the final format of the Wii U at the E3 show next year,” said Iwata.
“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.”
