Sega hints at Wii U spring-summer 2012 release window

Alan Pritchard, EVP of Sega, has hinted at the release of Nintendo Wii U sometime around spring-summer 2012.

The slip derived from an E3 interview GameSpot when asked about Sonic Generations availability on the Wii U console.

“The timing just doesn’t work, Pritchard said.

Generations releases this November, and the Wii U is coming out next spring/summer. I think one of the things we don’t have to do, or reduce where possible, is we don’t want to port games. I think if there’s going to be a Sonic game for the Wii U, it needs to be built from the ground up.

It’s more likely that it would be a separate stand-alone installment or in conjunction with a multiplatform release in the future. But to bring out Generations on a platform six or eight months after we release PS3, 360, and 3DS probably won’t be the best strategy.”
