Nintendo left out many of the finer details about Wii U at the system's announcement yesterday. Among the major points: price.
In an interview with Nikkei (registration required), however, Iwata did share what appears to be a rough lower limit, saying that Nintendo does not plan on selling the device for the same price as the current Wii. This means we can probably expect the Wii U to cost above ¥20,000.
Iwata also told Nikkei that he doesn't expect the Wii to immediately disappear following the Wii U's release, suggesting that Nintendo plans on offering the current system for at least a limited time after its successor is on the market.
