Nintendo is always at their best when their back is against the wall.

They grew complacent with the success of the Wii. They lost sight of what made them the game company we are accustomed to, and that's why the past few years have been so dark. They expected to easily reel in the casual market again, but failed to do so because of marketing that would make anyone with a brain cringe.

They seem to be firing on all cylinders now. If it's any indication, their past three marquee titles (DK, Mario 3D, and MK8) have all been top quality, and I have a feeling like they are aware of the direness of the Wii U's current situation.

There will be bombs dropped on that fateful Tuesday morning. Hopefully we can gain a glimpse of their glorious 2004-2007 reign in the actions they take to save the Wii U.

Well, there is always the possibility that they'll go completely insane and double-down on casual BS if QoL ends up being something.

I like to not think about a desperate move to casualization.. The idea of Mario and friends on IOS makes me sad.

But sorry, what is QoL?

E3 will be Nintendo's stomping grounds!

No they aren't... the last time this happened they made the god-awful Wii. They also contemplated leaving the home gaming market entirely. They are either going to leave or put out the worst monster of a casual horror show anyone has ever seen

The Wii-U is going to do worse than the Gamecube did. No ifs ands or buts about it.

I love when people drop the marketing card. There is literally no amount of marketing to salvage a product like this.

It's a shoddy tablet gaming console that can only be identified by people who make the connection that a random vowel suffix indicates a separate console, all while remaining oblivious to the critical point of why it isn't selling: there exist both tablets and game consoles with better value.

I think Nintendo made the tablet controller in an attempt to get their casual gaming base they had with the Wii to purchase their new system. Most of which moved to phones and tablets, so the Wii-U pad was something they might recognize. The problem is, they failed to be successful.
