Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has reassured Nintendo fans that the Wii U has a long life ahead of it. Reggie was asked by Kotaku whether it would be best at this point for Nintendo to scrap the console and start over to which Reggie said a defiant, no. He concluded by saying the Wii U has great content coming to it.
Totilo: The company has lost money lately, which is unusual in its long history, and if you look at 3DS it started sluggishly, there was a dramatic price cut and that helped turn that business around. If someone comes to you and says, ‘Reggie, just refresh, just start over, do a new console, do-over,’ You say?
Fils-Aime: I say, ‘No.’ And the reason I say that is because we believe the Wii U has a very long life ahead of it. It’s got great content coming that will help define the platform. For us, we think the 3DS is a very illustrative example. It wasn’t just the price cut. It was having great content that started with Kart 7 and 3D Land and then progressed and created a larger and larger footprint
