Nikkei.com again confirmed some soon-to-be-official news regarding Nintendo: The controller of Project Café/Stream/Wii 2 will feature a 6 inch touchscreen. Just as rumors of the past months implied. Further, the controller has a built-in battery and can function as a full-fledged portable device, not needing a TV-screen. Last but not least, there is also a built-in camera that the player can, for example, create an avatar of himself. Launch date is set to the middle of 2012, following in line with Nintendo´s press release that stated that Wii 2 wouldn´t launch before April 2012. More information should be available at Nintendo´s E3-press conference the upcoming Tuesday.
