happy birthday to the console with revolutionary controls

Wii blows out 15 candles. It was in fact November 19, 2006 when the revolutionary Nintendo console made its debut on the US market, and then in the following weeks also arrived in Japan (December 2) and Europe (December 8), taking the place of the GameCube.

The visionary platform presented itself with a control system never seen before, entirely based on motion sensors thanks to the pairing of Wii Remote and Nunchuk. Among the launch titles, to shine in particular was The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (a cross-gen work having also been released on the Cube), while each package of the console contained a copy of Wii Sports, a production designed for an audience. casual and useful to immediately understand the functions of the revolutionary controllers. Wii will base much of its fortune precisely by focusing on families and casual players, but over the years there have been excellent productions that have remained etched in the hearts of fans: here are the best games for Nintendo Wii.

The system went out of production in October 2013 in Japan and Europe, but over the course of its life cycle it sold a total of more than 101 million units, proving to be one of the biggest hits in the history of the Big N. Also in this period, in 2012, its successor also came out: Wii U receives its latest game nine years after its debut.
