    An interview by the Chilean outlet, La tercera, has been recently translated by Nintendo Everything contributors.
    In it, Reggie Fils-Aime acknowledges the Wii U's sales and how they hurt the company and the console itself, he commented on criticism about Star Fox's Gameplay and Graphics, and stated that he believes that they haven't lost the trust of their fans.


    It seems like Nintendo has finally admitted to the Wii U's failed advertising scheme, along with reassuring fans their goals are always about bringing great content to their platforms.

    Reggie, you've got to back stuff like that up. And I really don't think you can.

    They do have the largest amount of quality 1st party games (which isn't good considering the approach)
    Plus you could make the case that since the console has a lower amount of games the overall quality is better since it does not have as many duds. Speaking of which what is the average rating per WiiU game compared to ps4 or xbone.

    I was wondering that too. Maybe the NX is just some multi-console distribution thing?

    Now I'm wondering what Nintendo defines as a platform... I mean, it's obvious it's getting games, seeing as Zelda is "also coming out for NX". I'm sure Reggie is just misinformed there.

    We never even got a true, original mainline Mario on the scale of Galaxy of all things for Wii U. NSMBU was acceptable and SM3DW was pretty damn good, but these both still came off as lazy, reused engines

    The same could be said of Sunshine (which was much less of a mainline mario then SM3DW) however (especially compared to the hype of 128)

    Also is it me or does Reggie look like he is masturbating in that pic?

    I thought NSMBU and NSLU were pretty good. Definitely some of the better NSMB games. *Looks at NSMB2*

    I'm quite positive La Tercera is not Spanish, but Chilean.

    Well I'd need some hard proof before I edit my article because I don't want to base claims off of claims.

    I would assume that the interview wasn't very formal or well set up, more like something on the spot.
    Then again, I'm very likely to be very wrong.
