During in investor's Q&A session, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata was quizzed on new Wii U games and marketing initiatives.
Speaking about the line-up for the holiday season and into 2014, Iwata highlighted how there'll be more games next year that are designed to "greatly appeal to highly skilled users". However towards the holiday season, "we have quite a few offerings that can be played by the whole family, dad and the kids, or grandparents and the kids", Iwata said.
He feels that this approach will give Nintendo the edge with families as the launch of Xbox One and PS4, he feels, have a "focus on targeting highly skilled users" instead. Games like Super Mario 3D World, Wii Party U and Wii Fit U "all lean more towards family use and we are targeting those who bought Wii and would be interested in the Wii U offering", Iwata confirmed.
This year, what Nintendo is promoting is, conversely, to stand out in the game industry for individuality. I believe we have become a unique value.
These games include titles like Bayonetta 2, the untitled Monolith Soft RPG, Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart, all pitched for a release at some-point next year.
