Nintendo apologizes for lack of Wii U software

Postby Swordsman » Thu Jan 24, 2013 11:06 pm

President Satoru Iwata says desire to meet quality standards has led to delays, promises more new games beginning in March.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata apologized today for a drought of new Wii U releases in the first few months of the system's availability. He explained that Nintendo understands the need for new titles surrounding the Wii U launch, but also acknowledged that achieving quality is of the utmost importance.

"Nintendo takes seriously its responsibility offer a steady stream of new titles in the very early days of a new platform to establish a good lineup of software," Iwata said during a Nintendo Direct briefing this morning. "On the other hand, we also firmly believe we have to offer quality experiences when we release new titles. Based on our software development schedules at the end of last year, we concluded we should spend a little more time to satisfy our Nintendo standard of quality.

"I apologize to those supporting Wii U about the lack of new titles from Nintendo in January and February. But please understand we will have new titles to offer from March onward. We are planning a steady stream of games from spring to summer."

In recent weeks, Nintendo has bumped a number of "launch window" titles further into the horizon, including The Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, Wii Fit U, and Game & Wario.

Elsewhere in the Nintendo Direct presentation, Iwata revealed a bevy of new first-party games, including a brand-new Wii U Legend of Zelda game and a Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker high-definition remake. Other first-party Wii U titles revealed during the presentation included new Yoshi, Mario, and Mario Kart offerings.

Maybe if they stopped remaking everything they've ever made again they might have something new and innovative. Don't get me wrong, I've got nothing against Nintendo. I don't care what I've got so long as it plays games. I've just noticed that every game they seem to make are just remakes like they're afraid to move forward at all. When was the last time they thought of a new character?

tbh I think Nintendo gets too much shit for releasing the same franchise again, Sony and Microsoft do it a lot as well. http://i.imgur.com/7QhkYjd.jpg

The games on the left side are made by different game studios while Nintendo as one company have remade all those games themselves :P. That's how I see it anyway. I know they're ALL remakes but I can't think of one studio out there that has been able to remake as many. When the 3DS came out I just noticed without having read anything online that a lot of their game library looked like remastered N64 games. I like Nintendo, I just wish they'd totally reinvent something.

Remade? those games are pretty different. CoD hasnt been that different, NFS hasnt been different. I'm not saying Nintendo hasnt been 100% up to par with releasing games and new IPs, but they get too much shit.

i have to disagree here, i feel the fact that they remake their games are a pretty good idea. Constantly updating games for new gen consoles i find are awesome for new gamers and old ones alike, its to keep those classic game alive and damn has nintendo done a good job
