Nintendo is set to extend the Wii U’s launch window

Posted on June 6, 2012 - 5:12pm by Ryan Conway

During a very long and in-depth chat with the IGN’s Richard George, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said Nintendo won’t be taking the typical route when it comes to the launching games on the Wii U.

Usually when a new piece of gaming hardware makes the scene, all of it’s accompanying launch titles can be expected to appear alongside it either at the time of its release or with-in the first month or two of its existence.

Well, that won’t be the case for the Wii U, as Reggie said, that the window has been extended to “launch plus the following three to four months.”

Reggie seems confident with this decision. But is his body really ready for 3-4 months worth of big releases?

I certainly hope so.

I also hope this doesn't mean a delay for the console's big  first party-titles.

I want flying squirrel Mario and an army of rock Pikmin ASAP!
