Nintendo recently disclosed that it is looking to announce losses for its current financial year. However, health it does not mean that the company is lagging on the product front. The Japanese company is all set to release Wii U this year and is hoping that this state of the art console would be able to steer the company in right direction.
The gaming company said that it is looking to release Wii U in Japan, Australia, Europe and the US before the end of this year. Wii U will come with various new features, while ditching a few older ones. The company will now let the gamers create personal user accounts. This new feature will first arrive on 3DS. Nintendo will also conduct “competitions and communication among users, as well as the sales of digital content.”
However, the bigger scoop is that the new controller may come with NFC features. This new feature will help Wii U to “read and write data via non-contact NFC and to expand the new play format in the video game world.” Nintendo also teased that NFC will enable Wii U to be used for the purpose of making micropayments. It will also help in promoting games with additional content.
