Wii U will be on the market alongside the current Wii


In a recent Forbes interview with the president and Chief Operating Officer of Nintendo America, Reggie Fils-Aime, outlined the possibility of the Wii U seeing a launch date somewhere after April 2012.

The date, comes as no surprise as BGR reports as Nintendo has a history of having two generations of consoles on the market at the same time. The Nintendo DS was launched alongside the Gameboy Advance and the Wii was marketed along the same time as the GameCube.

He also mentioned the possibility of cross platform play where a gamer on the 3DS could potentially play against one on the Wii U.
