Nintendo "still focussed" on Wii


Lack of releases in 2011 was due to temporary shift of focus to 3DS
Despite the fact that almost all the Nintendo talk of late has been about new consoles, with the 3DS released last month and Wii successor Project Cafe being confirmed as making its debut at this year's E3 in June, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has given his word that the Wii is not about to become the company's forgotten child.

“We have not released any new Nintendo software titles for Wii, except for The Last Story in January, partly because we have focused on the launch of Nintendo 3DS since the beginning of this year. Therefore, some in Japan seem to have the misunderstanding that Nintendo has given up making efforts on Wii. We are actually ready to release new Wii software titles every month from May to the end of this year," he said, before revealing a lineup that includesPandora’s Tower, Wii Play: Motion, Rhythm Paradise, Inazuma Eleven Strikers, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Just Dance 2, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and a new Kirby title all set for stores before the end of 2012.
