Ninty set to fight the fall in profits with new home console

Nintendo has confirmed that the Wii 2 will launch in 2012 with a prototype model set to be shown off at the E3 2011 gaming expo in June.

The official line arrives courtesy of a document taken from its official investors relation website which makes reference to the 'Wii's successor system."

The document states that Nintendo will "show a playable model of the new system and announce more specifications at the E3 expo."

Talk of a successor to the Wii has intensified in recent months with the best of the Wii 2 rumours suggesting that it currently goes under the codename Project Cafe, will be more powerful than current Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles and will incorporate a controller with its own playable interface.

Sales of the current Wii console appear to be slowing up as Nintendo reported a fall in annual profit, with a new console very likely to reinvigorate interest back in the company.

We only have a couple of months to find out if any of the Wii 2 specs talk is true, and with T3 out in LA for the E3 2011 gaming expo, you'll be the first to hear about the new Nintendo Wii console.
