Nintendo of America president Reginald Fils-Aime has hinted at a surprise announcement regarding the Wii within two months, according to Infendo, who do not name a source.
Reggie Fils-Aime hinted at a “good” Wii surprise coming our way in September, but didn’t really say much more than that. Which is a shame, because I thought he and Blake were BFFL after E3.
What we know: It’s not the Mii popularity contest Channel, as he mentioned that in the same interview where he said there’s a surprise inbound to the Wii.
What we don’t know: Everything else.
There have been numerous rumours regarding a ´last secret´ to the Wii. Please read the commentary to this post for a good summary. Please appreciate that the post was written before the console´s launch and has not been updated.
To sum it up, Reggie originally promised that a secret would be revealed around launch. He later backed away from those claims.
So did Reggie perhaps promise the unveiling of the secret too early, retracted from that promise ... and now it is time to finally deliver? More importantly, where did Infendo get the quote from?
EDIT The quote is taken from Spike´s Gamehead interview, embedded below (the quote is 2:20 minutes into the interview).
