Team Ninja producer Yosuke Hayashi has blamed the lack of compelling software for the Nintendo 3DS as the reasoning behind the slow sales of the 3D console in Japan.
It’s been revealed that Sony’s PSP has regained the top spot in the Japanese hardware charts knocking the Nintendo 3DS into second place. Team Ninja’s Yosuke Hayashi believes this is because there’s more variety of software available on the PlayStation Portable.
“I believe the 3DS is a powerful console and it’s only been a short amount of time since it has been released,” the Dead or Alive Dimensions producer told us during a recent interview.
“In Japan, I feel that there isn’t enough software that can drive up the sales of the console. There’s a flow where people are looking towards the PSP where there is much more variety.”
“We see the potential in the 3DS and believe that once there are more games that can satisfy customers more people will start to realise the full potential of the console, so it’s still early days and we’re not worried about the future at the moment.”
