Iwata talks Wii U pricing, Wii won’t disappear after Wii U release
Everyone pretty much knew that Nintendo would share any launch related news for the Wii U. The console is at least a year away, so we won’t be getting any details until a few months before the system is ready to ship.
However, Satoru Iwata told Nikkei that Wii U won’t be sold at the Wii’s current price. Shocker, isn’t it? This means that the console will probably cost more than ¥20,000.
In other Iwata news, the Nintendo president indicated that the Wii won’t immediately disappear once the Wii U is out in stores, just like the 3DS and DS situation.
