If you've been keeping track of the world of gaming, you probably remember a Nintendo Direct broadcast the company gave us not too long ago known as Wii U Direct, which featured Nintendo's own Satoru Iwata and Eiji Aonuma as they bombarded us all with announcements for games, whether their own or other developers' Wii U exclusives. However, there are some games the Big N
isn't telling us about. Not only that, but these unannounced games may very well see a release before the year is up.
While discussing the amount of time it would take for Nintendo to release its big guns for the Wii U, Iwata said, "I believe that we will be able to launch new software within this year that we have not yet announced at this point." In regards to their already-announced games, Iwata promised that the wait period for those releases will be "not excessively long."
"Wii U has a lot of attractive features, but it requires a certain amount of time for people to understand them," said Shigeru Miyamoto while discussing how difficult it is for Wii U to communicate its value easily and directly. "We would have liked to create new entertainment that instantly communicated its value to the public, but we could not. However, I am confident that we did manage to develop software that, once people have played it, does communicate its value very well."
Furthermore, Nintendo is currently in the process of recruiting people to help build its current development teams in order to maintain its development schedules. "While it will take more time to give shape to our new propositions that take advantage of being able to use two screens," Miyamoto said, "we have various ideas already. In terms of our research and development resources, as we need more staff in response to the high performance of this hardware, we are working to recruit more people, including people from outside the company."
What do you think about Nintendo releasing Wii U games this year that we don't even know about yet?
