Fils-Aime: 3DS and Pokémon to blame for empty Wii schedule

As a gift to gleefully immature games writers everywhere, Nintendo of America head Reggie Fils-Aime has said the Wii’s release schedule is empty because the company is “already juggling two big balls” with the 3DS and Pokémon Black and White.

“Candidly, we’ve pushed out some Wii launches so we can focus on our handheld business,” Fils-Aime told IGN.

“We’re already juggling two big balls. To add a third would be a little bit challenging. Or a fourth or a fifth.”

The president said Wii owners could expect more news as the year moves on towards E3.

“We’re waiting to space things out and let Pokémon Black and White and 3DS live and breathe out there. But there’s content coming and we’ll be sharing more in the weeks ahead. We’ll be bringing some content out before E3 and then certainly at E3 we’ll be sharing some news.”
