Since E3 2011, Nintendo has been quiet about the Wii U, it's next generation console. The company plans to show off the system to the media next month at the Consumer Electronics Show, but don't expect to hear anything new.

Nintendo will show the Wii U to members of the press behind closed doors and will not have any new announcements for the event.

"Nintendo of America, working with the 2012 International CES management, will offer demos of the upcoming Wii U console to members of the media who did not see the system at the 2011 E3 Expo," a representative told Game Informer. "However, Nintendo will not have a booth at CES, nor does it plan to include any games, experiences or information beyond what was available at the 2011 E3 Expo.

"Production and development efforts remain on track for the Wii U launch, which will take place between the start of the 2012 E3 Expo in June, and the end of 2012."

Nintendo previously said it will re-unveil the Wii U at E3 2012.
