The WiiU home was turbulent throughout the world. Sales, although they have had a break with the release of Mario Kart 8, have been disappointing for a long time in many markets. The former Director of marketing for Nintendo in France, Mathieu Minel, has been interviewed on The Game, a magazine specialized in video games in French lands, and wanted to talk about it.
"Nintendo wasn't that easy and accessible game that shows perfectly the essence of the Gamepad"
Dispensed with the first days of the WiiU in the market and the general confusion among the public before the new platform: "I think that Nintendo Japan did not have the game ready yet. I mean that he didn't have that easy and accessible game that shows perfectly the essence of the Gamepad, the game similar to Wii Sports with the Wiimote which meant".
Minel considers that this absence ended up being final in the first steps of the machine on the market: "Unlike 90% of our competitors and their premieres in the market of hardware, Nintendo always tries to find fun, immediacy and a strong concept. None was ready for the launch of the WiiU".
