Reggie Slates Wii U for After April 2012; Demos Skyward Sword
June 18, 2011
Capping off a week-long video game special, Jimmy Fallon had Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime on the his show last night. During the appearance, Reggie showed off some AR battles in Kid Icarus: Uprising, let Jimmy get his mitts on Skyward Sword, and even brought out the Wii U. Fils-Aime then proceeded to reveal that the Wii U will not launch until sometime after April of 2012. That leaves eight months to debate over, but I’m still banking on a traditional holiday release. Then again, Nintendo has always marched to its own beat; so I wouldn’t completely rule out an oddball spring/summer launch just yet.
