Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, says in an interview with Kotaku that, though the Wii U sales are lower than expected, he believes the console can still recover:
We believe the Wii U has a very long life ahead of it. It’s got great content coming that will help define the platform. For us, we think the 3DS is a very illustrative example. It wasn’t just the price cut. It was having great content that started with Kart 7 and 3D Land and then progressed and created a larger and larger footprint.
