The first leaked video of the Wii 2?

The following video has surfaced on Youtube, which is supposed to have been sneakily shot during a presentation at an unknown video game developer.

Nintendo wants to shed their perception as a ‘kiddie’ company

This story isn’t directly related to the Wii’s successor outright, but it’s still relevant and a great cause for speculation nonetheless. Not too long ago, THQ announced that Saints Row: Drive By had been canceled for the 3DS as well as every other platform it was in development for. Interestingly, last June, THQ spoke about […]
