EA retracts Wii U snub, says it's brewing Nintendo games on the backburner

Ian Paul | May 23, 2013
Last week, a senior EA vice president said the publisher had nothing coming for Nintendo's Wii U. This week, the company's CFO says it does.

While excitement is building for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Nintendo is struggling to popularize the Wii U. During its fiscal year for 2012, Nintendo sold fewer Wii U consoles than the original Wii, a nearly seven year-old box. Even the 3DS handheld is more popular than the Wii U. 

Whatever's going on with EA and the Wii U, we should learn everything we need to know about EA's plans during the company's press conference at E3 on June 10 at 1 p.m. Pacific/4 p.m. Eastern. EA is promising new footage from EA Sports games, Battlefield 4, Need for Speed, as well as something the company is working on with Disney. The new Star Wars game, mayhaps?
