Struggles will bring success
Legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto believes that Nintendo will come through strongly from the recent sale struggles with the Wii U.
Certainly we've had tough times before, but the numbers have never been as bad as they are now. In my years with Nintendo what I've found is that it's always in those difficult times that we have a tendency to find that next new thing. And I think that maybe we're seeing a little bit of that (now at E3).
Mr. Miyamoto may be right, Sales are already on the up with the recent release of Mario Kart 8, which has helped increase Wii U sales by 90% from last year, with Mario Kart 8 itself selling an astonishing 1.2 Million units in its first weekend and becoming the fastest selling Wii U game in the process.
The future seems bright for Nintendo, who arguably stole the show at E3 with a fantastic display of great games coming up in 2014 and 2015 - included in those games is a new Smash Bros set for Winter 2014 which may bring an even bigger surge in sales than Mario Kart 8.
