The Wii name was one of the most divisive in Nintendo’s history when it was revealed back in 2006. Fans were used to calling the platform the Revolution, as that was its codename. Then out of nowhere, Nintendo revealed the Wii name, and people were left reeling. Of course, things settled down shortly thereafter, and it’s obvious at this point that the Wii name was the way to go.
While we all know the Wii logo quite well, Nintendo had considered quite a few different versions before they settled one the final design. A company handbook from 2007 reveals some of those designs, a few of which are wildly different from what we got. Do you see one you like better than the official version?
