A List Daily caught up with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime to ask him a number of questions regarding the future of Nintendo. It wasn’t long until the subject turned to the upcoming Nintendo NX platform and which lessons Nintendo has learnt with the well documented struggles of the Wii U. Here’s what he had to say.
“One of the things that we have to do better when we launch the NX—we have to do a better job communicating the positioning for the product. We have to do a better job helping people to understand its uniqueness and what that means for the game playing experience. And we have to do a better job from a software planning standpoint to have that continuous beat of great new games that are motivating more and more people to pick up the hardware and more and more people to pick up the software. Those are the critical lessons. And as I verbalize them, they’re really traditional lessons within the industry. You have to make sure people understand the concept, you have to make sure you’ve got a great library of games, and when you do that, you tend to do well.”
