It is for Nintendo platform, again, that's reason why Nintendo launched several system seller games in Switch first year after Wii U, big Nintendo games and Nintendo system sellers games are what selling Nintendo hardware on first place. NSMBU was actually one of reason why plenty of people thought that Wii U is some kind addon for Wii and not brand new console, it looked exactly same like NSMB from Wii just in HD, NSMBU like launch title done plenty of harm to Wii U, if Nintendo had Mario Maker and Splatoon for instance for Wii U launch, Wii U definatly wouldnt had so bad sales.
Try to remeber how much negativity around Wii U was in 2013. in gaming media right away after launch, going from terible sales numbers (it sold only 160k in first quarter after holiday season), months whitout any single release, not single one big or must have game, 3rd party start abonding platform...not all people thought that Wii U was doomed of course, especially Nintendo fans, but Wii U in 2013. got image of failed console without future.
So you're telling me if switch was a traditional console like Wii u or ps4 it would be selling just aswell. You're leaving out 1 glaring omission. Portable.
No, I never said that, I was very clear, I said if Wii U had some big or system seller games on launch and in first year, that would definitely has higher sales number than it did, no that Wii U would be success at end or that was only Wii Us problem.
There are very obvious reasons why Wii U is worst selling Nintendo consoles, Nintendo done evrething wrong with Wii U, but there are 3 main reasons:
-No big, strong system seller game on launch and in its first hole year, and huge software drouths
-Terrible branding and marketing, people massively thought that Wii U is some kind of addon for Wii
-Not appealing (and not used) concept
Intresting, Nintendo with Switch correct all those mistakes:
-very strong launch and 1st year with couple of huge, system seller games
-great marketing and branding
Also intresting, Wii also had all those things same like Switch, while Wii U didnt had not one of them.Last edited by Miyamotoo - on 12 July 2018
