After much rumor and speculation around the internet that Wii U could possibly see a name change at this year’s E3 conference, Nintendo of America has confirmed that “Wii U” is not a prototype name and will be the final production name of the console when it hits retail later this year.

Nintendo of America has also set up an official Facebook page for the console that includes a welcome message from NOA President & COO, Reggie Fils-Aime. You can visit the official Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/WiiU
