Nintendo’s Scott Moffitt, EVP of Sales & Marketing for Nintendo of America, has stated that he is confident that third-party developers will support the Wii U despite global poor sales. Moffitt told the publication that the company wants the Wii U to be the console that every developer wants to publish on and believes console sales will improve this holiday season.
“We don’t see this as an either-or proposition. Nintendo is in the unique position of being both a hardware manufacturer as well as a software producer. We want Wii U to be the console that every developer wants to publish on.”
“A key way to make that happen is to grow the installed base of Wii U owners, and we know that current Wii U owners are very happy with their purchases. Our great lineup in the second half of the year will create more buyers, and beyond that third-party support is important to attract as diverse an audience as possible.”
“[It’s] just the start of a steady flow of great games coming to Wii U, with lots more to come in 2014.”
