Rumor: Wii U Name Change Coming?


Posted January 26, 2012 - By Stephen Johnson

Wii U E3 2011

Unnamed sources on the internet (man, those guys know everything!) are claiming that the top men at Nintendo are mulling over whether or not to rename the Nintendo Wii U.

The speculation stems from Nintendo promising investors that the Wii U will learn a "bitter lesson" from the launch of the Nintendo 3DS. One of the perceived problems with the roll out of the Nintendo device was that consumers supposedly confused the 3DS with the Nintendo DS, a mistake that seems pretty easy to make.

Couple that with the announcement of the Wii U at E3 2011, which left many baffled as to what, exactly the device is, and you have a muddled message, according to some. That could lead to a new name for the Wii U.

Take this all with a grain of salt, of course. It's far from official, and seems pretty premature. I personally think "Wii U" is a great name, but if Wii U was renamed, what would you call it? Any thoughts, people?
