The Nintendo Wii is not going down without a fight, but Nintendo admits it's a little occupied with the nintendo 3DS and Pokemon Black and White.

Currently not satisfied about the game releases on the Nintendo Wii? Well you’re not alone. Perhaps the entire Wii-population is already wondering if the console still got some juice left in its lifespan as Nintendo shifts their focus to “two big balls” they’re juggling, the Nintendo 3DS and Pokemon Black and White. For the past couple of months, we’ve seen titles from the “mmm.. okay..” to the “screw this I don’t need another party titled game,” which makes us wonder if Nintendo still cares about their revolutionary console.

“There’s content coming, and we’ll be sharing more, certainly, in the weeks ahead,” said Nintendo President, Reggie Fils-Aime. Well, there’s your answer. The console’s still got some tricks under its sleeve before E3 and “more news” will be revealed during the expo this June. And with the Legend of Zelda celebrating its 25th anniversary, we’re quite comfortable saying that they won’t leave the Nintendo Wii out of the loop. Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, anyone?

Hit the break to see the IGN interview with Nintendo President, Reggie Fils-Aime.
