Speaking with CVG, Goichi Suda the head of Grasshopper Studios has expressed some dismay regarding how the Wii has turned out so far.
Their latest game No More Heroes was released last month in Japan, but despite good reviews has failed to achieve good sales.
"Whilst the sales weren't as high as I hoped, other titles for Wii aren't selling so well either. Only Nintendo titles are doing well. This isn't just because of the current situation in Japan, as this is happening outside Japan".
"I am very surprised about the reality about Wii, because before I was making this game, I wasn't expecting that Wii would be a console targeted only for non-gamers. I expected more games for hardcore gamers. The reality is different to what I expected".
Unfortunately most core gamers would agree that the Wii does have a disproportionately high percentage of casual and/or crap games, albeit with some diamonds in the rough. Hopefully this will change this year with more quality releases coming out.
No More Heroes is all set for a US release in five days, on January 22nd.
