Nintendo Says Wii U Games Unworthy As A Successor to The Wii
Nintendo has admitted that the selection of games presently available for the Wii U renders the platform an unworthy successor to the Wii.
During the company’s financial results briefing for the second quarter, Nintendo president and CEO Satoru Iwata brought up some upcoming titles, including Super Mario 3D World and Wii Party U, then said:
“On the other hand, except for its backward compatibility with existing Wii software and accessories, we have so far failed to make propositions worthy of Wii U’s position as a successor to the Wii system.”
Nintendo released Wii Party U last week; Super Mario 3D World will hit shop shelves on Nov. 29. Whether those games will redeem the console remains to be seen.
At E3, Sony decisively crushed Microsoft, but Nintendo wasn’t even part of the race. The company showed up, but it seemed Nintendo was just phoning it in, as though it had a bad case of senioritis.
