Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has explained to analysts why Nintendo decided not to announce the whole host of titles that are currently being developed by Nintendo for the 3DS at the Nintendo press conference.
“In terms of our own internal software development, we will be devoting much of our resources to support Nintendo 3DS. From our historical perspective, since we thought it is obvious that first-party software lineup needs to support the new platform to expand its installed base, we did not emphasize that in our [E3] presentation. We will of course introduce quality first-party software.”
“Our internal teams, which have created series titles supported by Nintendo fans, are now beginning their work on development, very excited about the various types of things that they’re going to be able to achieve.”
