"Core" Wii titles to be unveiled at E3

Nintendo has several you will like.

Nintendo has plans to reveal several Wii titles that "core gamers will be interested in" around E3 time next month.

That's according to Nintendo of America spokesperson Marc Franklin, who said dedicated fans have not been forgotten.

"The clear majority of people waiting in line outside retailers on Sunday mornings to buy their Wii consoles are core gamers," Franklin told GamePro. "We will be announcing several new titles that core gamers will be interested in around the time of E3."

This year has seen big first-party names such as Wii Fit, Mario Kart Wii and Smash Bros. Brawl (out here at the end of June). But plans for the latter half of the year, other than Mario Super Sluggers, are still unknown.

Franklin was also buoyed by third-party interest, and sees games such as Okami Wii at the forefront of a torrent of support for the console.

"Look at the plans being made by third-party publishers," added Franklin. "They realise that Wii is the current platform of choice in this generation, and their bottom lines depend on appealing to the largest base."

What do you think Nintendo has up its sleeve, Eurogamer reader? We're still hanging on to a handheld revelation.
