Did Nintendo fail to deliver games soon enough on Wii U? The Wii U has been released for a good few months now and yet we are not even close to a big release despite the games that were finally announced at the last Nintendo Direct. Right now the Wii U basically has nothing big to offer.
The question marks for Wii U are not a blank vacancy indicating that a great launch window franchise is still to come. The sad reality is that, for the first time in the company's history, Nintendo severely dropped the ball. Instead of bringing innovation to Wii U with a fresh concept, the company launched with a familiar classic (a 2D Mario game), a mini-game collection (Nintendoland) and a hodgepodge of third-party ports.
This was not the first time Nintendo disappointed consumers at launch. The company pulled a similar stunt when it released the Nintendo 3DS, a handheld system that launched without a single good game .
