Wii 2 launch in 2012 confirmed by Nintendo

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.

In the meantime, you can see the Wii successor confirmation letter here.
