Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has revealed that the Wii U has lost momentum and it’s their fault for not advertising the system properly at their investor briefing.

“Wii U has lost momentum due to the release pace of first-party titles which has not lived up to consumers’ expectations. Starting with Pikmin 3 scheduled for release in the upcoming July, however, we will intensively launch our key titles to give sales momentum to the platform,” he said.

“Some have the misunderstanding that Wii U is just Wii with a pad for games, and others even consider Wii U GamePad as a peripheral device connectable to Wii. We feel deeply responsible for not having tried hard enough to have consumers understand the product.”

“Wii U has lost momentum due to the release pace of first-party titles which has not lived up to consumers’ expectations.”

The company needs to make people purchase the system and a price drop with good software is a good way to do that.

    Nintendo’s real failure with the Wii U is in not having a killer app platformer title ready at launch. You would think by now they know that software sells hardware. They really blew it by not having a Smash Bros, 3-d Mario game, Metroid, Mario Kart, or Zelda title ready at launch. Honestly, somebody at Nintendo should be fired for missing what may have been the Wii U’s best window of opportunity. Sorry, a side-scrolling NES-like Mario game doesn’t cut it.
