[Video] Reggie talks Wii U at CES

Reggie was interviewed about the Wii U by Spike TV at CES; and while he didn’t make any groundbreaking announcements, he was happy to provide a vague insight into Nintendo’s plans for 2012 and the Wii U’s long-term strategy. I’d recommend watching the full video interview above, seeing how many points he touches on, but there are a few highlights that I’ll mention in this article.

Chiefly, perhaps, is that Nintendo are aiming to capture an even larger audience with the Wii U than the Wii did. Seeing how phenomenally successful the Wii was, it almost sounds like he wants lightning to strike twice. But Nintendo do have their competitors in an interesting position; and I wouldn’t deny that the Wii U is a huge opportunity for them if they play their cards right.

Reggie also promised that the Wii U would be accompanied by a robust launch lineup, and reaffirmed his hopes that the new controller would bring about a set of new experiences in both video games and other applications.
