NOA’s Reggie Fils-Aime doesn’t believe Wii U will be a “hard sell” to consumers once it is released.

Speaking in an interview with Forbes, Reggie implied that having two screens to play around with will be the biggest selling point, and it won’t confuse folks either.

“What we are doing with Wii U is creating an ability for games to leverage two different screens; the big screen in your room, and the smaller handheld screen in front of you,” he said. “By doing so it opens up all of these different experiences.

“The experience I use to describe it to someone is to imagine a first person shooter, where instead of constantly having to look at the screen, now I’ve got things happening all around me. It’s a great experience.

“I don’t think it’s going to be a hard sell. I think that communicating to consumers through the magic of the second window, you can have a totally unique experience, with another player still in the room… I don’t think it’s a difficult sell.”

Reggie told Jimmy Fallon last month Wii U will be released sometime after April 2012.
