Nintendo facing ‘huge challenge’ communicating Wii U features
Things haven’t gone entirely to plan with 3DS and Nintendo has acknowledged the ‘huge challenges’ it faces with its next hardware launch - Wii U.
In a chat with Wii Sports designer Katsuya Eguchi, our friends at Edge suggested Nintendo faces a similar struggle when it launches Wii U late next year.
“You’re absolutely right, those are just some of the huge challenges ahead of us - getting people to really understand what Wii U can offer,” acknowledged Eguchi.
“We have some experiences here right now - with Chase Mii and ‘shield Pose’ - and we have a great opportunity to give people time to play the games, so we’ll take advantages of expos, conferences and in-store demos,” he added.
“But we really want people to understand how the TV screen and controller screen interact and how that changes the experience. And we’ve come up with a variety of uses. But you’re right, we can’t explain them all, and I don’t even think we’ve thought of them all. I’m sure there are many uses that haven’t been thought of yet.”
