Although the Wii U is in trouble when it comes to retail sales, it doesn’t appear that Nintendo is ready to give up on it just yet.
Some rumors have circulated over the week that Nintendo was set to introduce a new hardware system at the Electronic Entertainment Expo next month. However, the company was quick to respond, stating that there will be no hardware announcements.
“I can confirm Nintendo is not revealing any hardware at this year’s E3,” a representative told Nintendo Life.
This follows a report from early Friday morning regarding the company trademarking a patent for a new mobile device with interchangeable buttons. Nintendo had no comment on the device.
That doesn’t mean it’ll be dormant at E3, however. It previously announced a tournament for its upcoming fighting game Super Smash Bros., as well as a Digital Event where new titles are expected to be announced.
