Nintendo’s Wii U Has An “Abysmal” Name
Dan Adelman tells us something we already know.
Nintendo’s former Indie lead Dan Adelman (the man responsible for Nintendo platforms receiving games like World of Goo and Cave Story) has given us some insight into his personal thoughts on Nintendo’s Wii U console.
Sales performance has been poor across the board and is most commonly blamed on the lack of a vast gaming library and the high price bracket, Dan Adelman however, feels differently. Speaking on ASK FM, he say’s, “Wii U is not selling as well as it deserves to. It has a lot to offer with great games you can’t get anywhere else,”, “The value of the GamePad hasn’t been justified. But the name Wii U is . I think that cut sales in half right there.”
It’s no secret that Nintendo’s attempt at next generation gaming with the Wii U hasn’t exactly been much of a success when compared to Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4; they are placing faith in the upcoming Super Smash Bro’s game and the new Legend of Zelda game (that is still in development and not even close to being released) to turn things around and boost sales, but what do you blame for the Wii U’s poor performance?
