Go Nintendo sure is rife with rumors this weekend. The latest fakery involves a speech transcript allegedly intended for use by Reggie Fils-Aime at the big Nintendo event to be held in NYC on September 14.
Here are a few of the Wii fantasies embedded in the document:
- Hint at possible Apple partnership
- $175 U.S. price
- Launch date of Oct. 2
- 1.5 million units shipped to U.S.; 1.5 million units shipped to Japan; 1 million units shipped to Europe
- Wii package includes: Black or white Wii console; one Wii remote; one nun chuck device; one classic controller; copy of Wii Sports; built-in WiiConnect24 service; voucher for 1,000 coins for Virtual Console; built-in Web browser; remake of Duck Hunt; 512MB SD card.
- 21 launch titles
- New Kid Icarus game for Wii
[Update: We made it clear in the headline and first paragraph that we don't believe this for a second, but it's appropriately zany and fun for a weekend post.]
