Nintendo Can Rise Again!
Nintendo, one of the most important and well respected gaming companies in the world, depending on who you talk to, is in a very confusing state when it comes to its future right now. The company has already announced two upcoming consoles, the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS XL for release in the near future. Now while any announcement for a new product, especially a new gaming console, is always exciting, is it really generating enough talk and exciting to finally put Nintendo back where it belongs, on top of the gaming industry. Now is the perfect time for Nintendo to announce and talk about its future projects and releases to generate some excitement as Microsoft and Sony haven’t really been doing anything but a little minor updates and features to its current consoles.
Now why should you be excited for Nintendo this year, well the Wii U alone is set to feature a robust and redefined online service that will be cross compatible with the DS and 3DS, completely updated graphics, and a strong third party support. On the handheld side, the newly announced 3DS XL has the potential to be the one and only true handheld console in the market. Nintendo just needs to take advantage of the speculation that is surrounding them, and most importantly, listen to all of its fans.
Like many others, I abandoned Nintendo this generation and decided to get a Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, and while I did purchase a Nintendo DS, I rarely used it after I satisfied my Pokemon craving. Nintendo has the chance to get many gamers in my position back to its side by announcing must have titles (cough cough, a new The Legend of Zelda and Super Smash Bros soon) and recapture the day where gamers where proud to say they where Nintendo fans and waste hours and hours playing their system. Now I am sure that Nintendo will still continue to release gimmicky titles and retain a strong family oriented experience, I have no problem with that, all I ask is for Nintendo to revive and focus on its main audience once again.
With more and more news being updated, all I can say for you Nintendo fans out there is…
