Wii U isn't struggling says Nintendo America boss
Reggie Fils-Aime has said the Wii U has a long life ahead of it.
That's according to Nintendo America boss Reggie Fils-Aime. When Kotaku implied that the console has so far 'struggled' to meet new audiences, Fils-Aime responded "I wouldn't use that word."
"We've been very clear that the number of games that we've launched essentially July through the end of last year, a number of those games we had hoped they would be launch window games, everything from Pikmin to Wii Party U, we wanted all of that content to launch much sooner.
"Our belief is that software is what drives hardware and if that would have come earlier we might be having a different conversation. But the fact is we are where we are."
Kotaku then asked the whether or not it would be best for the Wii U to be forgotten about, in order for Nintendo to reverse their financial issues tied in with the console.
"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."
It follows Reggie Fils-Amie statement last week that Wii U is beating Xbox One in the next-gen console race.
