Kotaku has confirmed that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata will announce the long-requested storage solution for the Wii during his keynote speech at the 2009 Game Developers Conference this morning.

Along with the official announcement of Rock N' Roll Climber, a rock climbing game that uses the Wii Balance Board previously leaked by the ESRB ratings website, Iwata will discuss a data storage device for the Wii, which gamers have been clamoring for since the introduction of the Virtual Console with the systems launch.


Rather than a hard disk, it looks like the Wii will utilize high capacity SD solution to solve the console's memory woes.

Stay tuned to Kotaku's Live Blog of the keynote for more information!
