The Nintendo Wii 2 + Touchscreen Controller Pictures

Admin June 5, 2011 0

As reported on Mashable, Japanese source Nikkei [registration required], which has correctly predicted numerous Nintendo rollouts in the past, confirms that the next Wii’s controller will have a touchscreen with a “size of about 6 inches.” Beyond that, the controller will have a camera on board, will give users tablet-like control of games and will be powered by a built-in rechargeable battery.

Nikkei says the next Wii could be released in mid-2012. Although it’s being called the Wii 2 across the blogosphere and beyond, Nintendo is still not saying what it has named its next gaming console, code-naming it “Project Café” and saying nothing more than it will be “the successor to the Wii.” Read the full spread here.
