Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has confirmed that the Wii U will be showcased at E3 next year.
In an investor presentation following the company's recent financial results, Iwata explained that E3 2012 will feature the final version of the Wii U.
"As we learned a bitter lesson with the launch of the Nintendo 3DS, we are trying to take every possible measure so that the Wii U will have a successful launch," he said.
In the same presentation, Iwata also promised more consistent software launches and "new genres" for the troubled 3DS.
Last week, Nintendo posted a net loss of ¥70 billion for the sixth month period ending September 30, 2011.
