In an evident attempt to answer the widespread skepticism about its forthcoming Wii U game console - which is scheduled for release this holiday season -, Nintendo said on Tuesday that the console will feature high-powered games.
Drawing attention to new titles which will feature popular characters, Nintendo said that the games for the Wii U will largely be from some of the blockbuster franchisees, including "Super Mario Bros.," "Wii Fit" and "Pikmin."
In their E3 presentation, Nintendo executives released a long list of third-party games coming to the U, including "Mass Effect 3," "Aliens: Colonial Marines," and a special "Batman: Arkham City" version which uses the tablet controller as a secondary display. The executives also confirmed that the Wii U can have two tablets connected to it at the same time, to facilitate simultaneous game play by family members and friends.
With Nintendo trying to entice consumers with the new titles for Wii U, which the company is looking to position as an innovative console which will allow users to play games in an unprecedented manner, it is quite apparent that the company has learnt a lesson from its last year-released 3DS handheld which it launched without accompanying titles starring Nintendo's popular cast of characters.
The sales of the 3DS were quite weak initially, and they improved only after the holiday season last year, when Nintendo finally managed to entice gamers with new titles from the popular series like "Super Mario Bros." and "Mario Kart."
