Several Wii U Daily readers emailed us over the weekend to tell us that Nintendo is currently in the process of rebranding its Facebook pages. The Nintendo 3DS page will be renamed to Nintendo Handheld Gaming, likely to coincide with the fact that Nintendo 2DS will shake up that naming convention once it is made available to the public.
The Nintendo Wii and Wii U Facebook pages are also being merged under one umbrella aptly titled Nintendo Consoles. The Wii U page has 981k fans, while the Wii page has nearly 6 million. With this merger, Nintendo will be able to present Wii U news to all those who liked the Wii page, helping with marketing and letting people who have a Wii know that there is an upgraded console instead of being a tablet add-on.
This is a great move for Nintendo marketing both on the console and handheld fronts. This merger will be completed by September 20th.
