Legendary video games designer Shigeru Miyamoto has confessed that Nintendo did a poor job conveying the unique features of the Nintendo 3DS, such as the Augmented Reality features and pre-installed applications. Miyamoto also admitted that the launch line wasn’t up to scratch and should have featured Mario titles.
“If I could rewind the clock I would change the lineup for the 3DS launch so it had more Mario titles. Not only that, but we also have some excellent features that appeal to non-gamers: 3D photography, the augmented reality features and other preinstalled apps. We tried hard to communicate these, but we failed. If I could go back I would have communicated these things differently, and spent more time working out that message.”
