I imagine that's the only reason anything is ever late, because it's not ready to be released. That's why people would be angry because they're treating the Wii U as the inferior platform by not keeping it up to pace. The should have allocated more resources to the console version to prevent this from happening. Why is it additional cannalibization though? Surely they need this title to push Wii U sales, not 3DS sales.

It seems Nintendo is really making it to where you need to purchase both versions. Not that it's an inherently bad thing, because in the end they care about the bottom line.


I can sort of understand the perspective that they should have thrown more resources into it, but the Assassin's Creed series demonstrates that there are hidden costs to this as well. Namely, when a game's team gets too big for the sake of pushing it out sooner, it can often feel disjointed. Personally, I prefer they wait a bit more and smoothen the experience, as Smash Bros is a series I have played for years and years on end. (Insert Miyamoto delay quote here. Make it sound wise and not just cheesy)

As for cannibalization, I think it's safe to say lots of folks won't have enough cash on hand to buy both games at the same time, meaning they'd have to pick one or the other. Granted that the title is likely to be an evergreen, but I have to think staggering the two like this will lead to better sales for the series overall.

You obviously didn't spam teleport to disrupt you foes tempo.



Now that's how you do a Direct, no filler and straight to the point. I like it :)



Don’t follow the hype, follow the games

Here a little quote I want for those to keep memorize in your head for this coming next gen.

GRENINJA FTW!!!! Really, I screamed like a little girl when I saw Greninja.



 

 

 

That was pretty cool ^_^



Wow... that was a very well structured and entertaining Nintendo direct. It was very smart of them to get the release date issue out of the way first. That way the show built momentum instead of culminating in disappointment.

Hats off to sakurai, he just schooled the rest of nintendo on how to make a good ND.
