Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Iwata: “Wii U Is Not Over Yet”

Mobile's growth rate is still in double digits, but slowing down considerably. I think mobile gaming will enter it's plateau phase.


Apple just sold a record 77 million (holy sh*t) iPhones in three months flat (Oct-Dec). 

Nintendo may not even hit 9 million 3DS shipments for the entire 12 month fiscal year even with the New 3DS revision, which would be their lowest handheld shipment for a year since 1998. 

I know what you're trying to say, but it looks to me like traditional handhelds are going in the wrong direction. 

When we talk about mobile, we do not talk about devices, but mobile gaming revenue (software).

I think you kinda have to look at device sales though when look at it in context versus traditional handhelds. 

A person who is content playing free games on iOS may not contribute to mobile gaming revenue, but they are getting their mobile downtime eaten up by their phone, as such that person is unlikely to purchase a traditional handheld. 

That's a big problem for traditional handhelds. A lot of people today feel like 'why should I buy one of these, I have 10-15 minutes of free gaming time when I'm away from the house, and I can play smartphone games during that time'. That's really what's hurting traditional handhelds, people are deciding they don't need one at all. 



With Star Fox U, Zelda U and Xenoblade Chronicles X coming up this year? Heck yeah, Wii U certainly isn't done yet.

I'm glad to hear it. It makes me excited for what is to come.

It's a role phones just perform better. But when it comes to AAA handheld gaming, when you sit down longer or are commutor who's travelling long stretches, handhelds are just better.
