Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime recently took part in an interview with the Alternative Press and touched briefly on the subject of the Nintendo NX. Reggie says that the firm hopes to have an effective transition from the Wii U to the Nintendo NX and also have a strong 2016 holiday performance.
Regarding the Wii U, we have been able to put out a number of highly scoring games, games that consumers want to play, that you can’t play anywhere else. So from that standpoint the system absolutely has been a success, but when you come off from selling the Wii and selling over 100 million systems it’s really tough to lap that performance. What we’re focused on is making sure we have an effective transition from the Wii U, we’re going to have a strong holiday performance, we’ve got games coming for the system and then next year we’ll look forward to the NX.
