Wii Users Get Message from Nintendo about Wii U Being ‘More Than an Upgrade’

Old Wii owners received a message on their console’s WiiConnect24 channel from Nintendo stating that the new Wii U is ‘more than just an upgrade.’

Specifically, the message reads “Did you know that you can play nearly all of your existing Wii games on Wii U? Your Wii controllers and many Wii accessories can also be used with a new Wii U console — along with any downloaded games, save data, and other info stored in your existing Wii console.”

“Wii U is the all-new home console from Nintendo. It’s not just an upgrade — it’s an entirely new system that will change the way you and your family experience games and entertainment. The second screen on the included Wii U GamePad controller enables never-before-seen ways to play games and enjoy TV. And for the first time ever, you can see Mario and your favorite Nintendo franchises in glorious HD.”

Nintendo’s President, Satoru Iwata, contributed the low sales of Wii U to the lack of communications to its existing customers.
