With Nintendo’s next project the NX looming some of us were afraid that the Wii U would be neglected while they worked on the new device. Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima has assured gamers that simply won’t be the case and that they plan to continue providing new software experiences on the Wii U. He claims that the last thing they want to do is abandon Wii U owners while they transition to the NX.
So we can’t just abandon them and say ‘Hey, it’s time to move on to the next thing.’ Of course we are working on NX and looking at the experiences we can bring to that platform. But first our job at this point is to support the consumers who have purchase Wii U and make sure that they have software experiences available to them.”
