Reggie Talks Wii With MTV

Posted by Christopher Sasaki Categories: Nintendo, Wii,

ReggieNintendo seems to be all over the press lately, trumpeting their successes with the Wii and receiving generally favorable reviews for their new console. Reggie Fils-Aime recently talked to MTV about this, and their aims for the future as they try to keep moving forward with the Wii. In addition to their massive tie rate with The Legend of Zelda, Fils-Aime claims that third-party titles like Red Steel, Rayman, Madden 2007, and Trauma Center: Second Opinion have sold well with the Wii.

Reggie also talked upcoming first-party releases. January should bring a new Wario Ware title and Wii Play, with Mario Party 8 coming by March. The new Metroid and Super Mario titles will come some time after that, but before the end of next year. Third-party support was also praised, something which was somewhat problematic with the Gamecube.

Other topics covered include Reggie’s opinions of some of the reviews Wii titles have been receiving, online play (the first title will be Pokemon Battle Revolution in Japan), and Virtual Console Mondays, Nintendo’s weekly release of software titles for their Virtual Console, much like Microsoft’s Live Arcade Wednesdays. While the interview doesn’t give a whole lot away on Nintendo’s strategies, it is interesting to see Reggie’s viewpoint on the console launch.
