Nintendo announced that it will do a better job launching their upcoming console the NX compared to its predecessor, the Wii U. This stance comes directly from Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime, who admitted that the 2012 system had problems at release.
"One of the things that we have to do better when we launch the NX," Fils-Aime told alistdaily, "[is] we have to do a better job communicating the positioning for the product. We have to do a better job helping people to understand its uniqueness and what that means for the game playing experience."
"We have to do a better job from a software planning standpoint," he continued.
At the launch of the Wii U, several high-profile first-party games were delayed to allow for extra polish. This included Pikmin 3 and Game & Wario, leaving the system with a very limited software library.
"[Nintendo must] 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," Fils-Aime added. "Those are the critical lessons."
The NX – the company’s latest system, with mobile and home-play functionality – is slated for release in March 2017. Rumours surfaced last month about the system, and a supposed September reveal for Tokyo Game Show. One title announced for the system is the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
