For those of us who own a Wii U, we love it. At the same time, many of us can attest to it being a rather niche console that does not receive the love that it clearly deserves. Nintendo of America’s Scott Moffitt recently sat down with Examiner.com to discuss the Wii U’s merits over the competition, and what Nintendo may have been able to do better earlier on in the game.
“We’ve proven time and time again, we make great games, they get great users [sic] scores as well as critical scores… we are continuing to show the promise of the GamePad and, candidly, early on we probably didn’t showcase the promise of the GamePad as well as we could have,” Moffitt told Examiner. That being said, he was quick to note that developers are becoming “more comfortable” with the GamePad, and thus we have and will continue to see more games utilize its unique abilities.
Moffitt is optimistic that more people will start to reconsider the Wii U now that developers are “leverag[ing] [its] power”. Seeing as that the GamePad is uniquely innovative when compared with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One controllers, the Wii U can offer a completely different and arguably more immersive experience than its competition.
Super Mario Maker is due to release in September, and Star Fox Zero is set for Holiday 2015. With the releases of these highly anticipated titles, Moffitt expects the Wii U to “propel… to new heights”.
