Nintendo’s UK marketing manager, James Honeywell, has said Wii owners have “some fantastic new experiences,” to look forward to regarding the console.

Speaking with CVG, Honeywell said the slowdown in Wii sales can be attributed to it already being in so many homes.

“We’ve been really pleased with Wii and how it has performed,” he said. “It’s the market leader in the UK by some margin. I think it has been proven really that it is Britain’s favourite home console with a huge install base.

“But obviously as you reach a certain level things perhaps might slow down, but again we’ve got a really strong line-up, we’re really proud with what we’ve achieved in getting it into so many homes, and we’ve have a strong campaign for promotion this year and think it will continue as a strong viable format.

“We haven’t made any announcements recently because we’ve been concentrating on the 3DS launch, but there are still lots of games to come. I’m sure you’ll see at this year’s E3.

“For anybody who has a Wii, they can rest assured that we’ll be bringing some fantastic new experiences to them.”

The new Zelda, finally, perhaps.
