In a recent article, Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata stated that he sees the Wii U as important to the world–presumably the world of video games. Iwata sees the state of the game industry and sees the opportunity to bring something innovative. Impact is a noble goal and innovation receives applaud, but Nintendo’s latest console-in-work is not getting confident feedback. The graphics resemble the Xbox 360, the tablet controller raises its own set of uncertainties, and 3rd party support is unsure. The Mario Factory cannot have these kinds of issues if they want to be an impact. What they must do is unite their ideals with current gaming trends.
