Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aimé admits during an interview that the developer has to “do a better job” with the upcoming NX than they did with the Wii U.
In an interview with [a]listdaily, Fils-Aimé admits that there were some lessons that Nintendo learned from the Wii U, and that the company learns every time they launch a new platform.
“Every time we launch a new platform, every time we launch a critical new game, we always learn. We always do our breakdown of what worked, what didn’t, and certainly we’ve done that with Wii U… One of the things that we have to do better when we launch the NX – we have to do a better job communicating the positioning for the product,” states Fils-Aimé. “We have to do a better job helping people to understand its uniqueness and what that means for the game playing experience. And we have to do a better job from a software planning standpoint to have that continuous beat of great new games that are motivating more and more people to pick up the hardware and more and more people to pick up the software. Those are the critical lessons.”
It seems Nintendo will be trying harder when it comes to titles appearing on the NX. Reports have stated that there will be Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon titles on the system within the first six months after release. The report also states that the console will see more 3rd party support from the likes of Sega, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Activision, and Warner Bros.
The Nintendo NX is expected to release in early 2017.
