Nintendo: Wii U out after April 2012

Reggie narrows window.

Nintendo will launch its next home console after April 2012.

Nintendo USA boss Reggie Fils-Aime revealed the launch window on US TV show Jimmy Fallon while demonstrating the Wii U.

Wii U, announced at E3, comes with a wireless controller that has a touch-screen built in. It marks Nintendo's first foray into HD gaming.

Nintendo is yet to announce specifications, leading to speculation around the Wii U's power.

We do know Nintendo plans to send out updated hardware either this month or next month to publishers, which should give developers a better idea of what they're working with.
