Nintendo had a lot to offer at this past E3 with their announcements of multiple new titles, set on a sole mission to shed spotlight on the Wii U. Attendees were able to get their hands on the highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. as well as Yoshi’s Woolly World and Splatoon among others. Being one of the most popular destinations at E3 seems to have paid off tremendously. Tech website GamesIndustry.biz has produced a chart that shows a 50% increase in intent to purchase a Wii U over the course of the event. Around one thousand gamers were surveyed about various purchase intentions for different consoles, and the survey found that Nintendo had benefited most from one of the industry’s most popular conventions.
One of the highlights of Nintendo’s many press conferences was a glimpse into the brand new Legend of Zelda flagship title for the Wii U. Although attendees and viewers from home were only given a short glimpse, their interest was certainly captivated. A stellar 89% of current Wii U owners stated that they will definitely be purchasing the game once it is released, even though most of its details are still shrouded in mystery.
Most of these new additions to the Wii U gaming library aren’t expected until 2015 at the earliest, but it still leaves Nintendo fans with a lot to look forward to.
