Dylan Cuthbert, of Q-Games, has worked with Nintendo in the past. He’s worked on the Star Fox series multiple times. When asked in an interview recently what he thought Nintendo needed to do with the Wii U he said they simply needed more software.
I think software. If they are going to win they are going to have to figure out the games. They probably need like new super IP, a special IP that makes people really interested. But they always come up with something. They are always very innovative. Even with the DS when it first came out people said that’s not very good and it’s not going to do very well, but it sold hundreds of millions and had lots of innovative titles. I think they will find something that will sell a lot. Who would have known Wii Fit would have sold like 15 million units?
Perhaps Pokemon Rumble U with those NFC Pokemon toys is just what Cuthbert is talking about. I’m not sure if Wii Fit U can have the same impact the original game did but it is worth a try for Nintendo.
Cuthbert is right that Nintendo should never be count out. They’ve surprised everyone countless times. Still, even when they brought out revolutionary games like Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64 that didn’t guarantee their consoles being super successful.Q-Games on Wii U: They need a 'special, super new IP',
