While that’s probably not all that shocking (a company thinking their own product is great?), they actually just might have something there.
It’s no secret that the Wii U hasn’t sold nearly as well as the Wii did when it caught fire at it’s launch in 2006 and subsequently enjoyed a tremendous run through the last half of the decade. The Wii U has some very big things going for it this Holiday Season though; namely Super Mario 3D World and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.
While the just released Xbox One and PS4 both have their share of solid launch titles, it just might Nintendo with its one-year old Wii U that has the best lineup of software. Super Mario 3D World is maybe the best title in the franchise in a long, long time too and a genuine Game of the Year contender. Think about that statement for a second and let that sink in as we’re in a year that saw GTAV and a host of other triple-A games hit consoles.
If you’re on the fence about the Wii U, Nintendo has released this handy-dandy little infographic about the system to try and sway you their direction. Honestly, pr piece or no, they make some good points.
Oh, and if I might add, if you’re looking for a solid handheld console this Holiday, there’s one big reason to think 3DS; it’s called The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. It’s really, really great.
