We all know the Wii U was not a heavy seller, but some of the games on it were amazing, and not too many people got a chance to play them. Reggie stated this in a recent interview with Waypoint. The interview is stated below. But what do you think? Do you want more Wii U ports like Super Smash Bros. , Bayonetta 2, and maybe even something like Tokyo Mirage Sessions?
“Given the install base of Wii U, there was some fantastic content that consumers did not get to play,” Fils-Aime said. “So that creates certainly a business opportunity. On the other hand, one of the things that we’ve discussed internally is, there really needs to be an additional element to that game to make it fresh, and to further compel the consumer to buy in.”
“I think the best example of that is Pokken Tournament Deluxe. Additional fighters, that gives the fan a reason to buy into it. Same is true with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, providing a mode that the consumers wanted in terms of a better battle mode, that was then included in that game. And so, I think the way we will continue to evaluate this is: yes, do we have opportunities with great games that maybe were not played as broadly on the Wii U, but then what’s the plus alpha that’s going to make it really compelling for the consumer?”
