Some of the more fanciful details of Nintendo’s Project Cafe or Wii 2 as most people inevitably still think of it have apparently been confirmed by Japanese website Nikkei. The six inch touchscreen controller which also doubles as a portable console puts in an appearance and this time we even get a ball park release date.
How does mid-2012 grab you? Well, considering the Wii is pretty much in free-fall as it is, that does seem rather a long way off, but Nintendo might be counting on Skyward Sword to give the system the last Holiday season it needs to bow out gracefully. At the very least we’ll know more in a week after all the E3 announcements run their course. Until then, if you need us we’ll be practicing playing Mario on our iPad via emulator just in case this madness comes to pass.
