New rumors appear of Nintendo releasing a new Wii Console this Summer.

I already expected that Nintendo would release a new Wii console last year, but the company squeezed out another holiday sales run with the current Wii at discount prices and special bundles. 2011 seems now the year that Nintendo is releasing a new Wii console that can finally handle HD.

GameInformer reports that they have confirmed with multiple sources that Nintendo is going to release a Wii HD this summer. The announcement could be made at the E3 2011 or even before.

This new rumor is supported by another one that sees a Wii price-cut in May. According to Engadget Nintendo will sell the Wii for $150 starting May 15th.

A Wii HD that will also support 3D gaming at a $200 price-point would give Sony and Microsoft again something to chew on. The problem to solve for Nintendo is to keep the price low as HD requires more hardware performance. We will see if they succeed when they unveil the Wii HD.

The E3 2011 takes place from June 7 to June 9 in LA.
