Nintendo’s Bill Trinen believes 3Ds will “take off” in the US this year, thanks to the amount of titles in the works.

With Wii U out in North America and launching in Europe at the end of the month, it’s obvious Nintendo will be focusing solely on developing first-party titles for its new system, but if you had any doubts on the matter, NoA director of product marketing Bill Trinen said this is indeed the case. When asked by Gamespot if Nintendo were developing titles for Wii, he replied: “No… not right now.” Granted, it’s possible the firm could try to extend the lifecycle of its console with new releases or multiformat titles in the future, but for now, the only “new” Nintendo title for the system is Kirby’s Dream Collection and it was released back in September.

Wii U will have games which use dual-Gamepads “sometime next year,” NoA has told 1UP. GamePads won’t be sold separately in the US at launch, as in Japan, due to the fact it may cause confusion among consumers since there aren’t any games require two at the moment. “The launch window is all going to be single-GamePad. The dual-GamePad functionality, we expect to start seeing that in games sometime next year,” Bill Trinen said. “Our feeling is, we’re not going to sell another GamePad if you don’t have something to use it with. We’ll make that available as an additional accessory when there’s content to support it.” Until then, co-op and multiplayer games can be played using a WiiMote and Nunchuck. Wii U launches in November in the US and Europe.
