With step one being, let people see what it is. Because it's supposedly out in March 2017. We kid. In a new interview with [a]listdaily Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aimé opened up about the company's recent successes and what it has learned as it gears up to unveil the still very mysterious Nintendo NX.

Although the interview talks about a lot of things, like Nintendo's recent foray into the mobile space, and the company's partnerships, Reggie did open up a bit about the Wii U and what Nintendo needs to do differently with the NX.

Every time we launch a new platform, every time we launch a critical new game, we always learn. We always do our breakdown of what worked, what didn’t, and certainly we’ve done that with Wii U, and we continue to believe that the innovation of the second screen was a worthwhile concept. The games that we’ve launched on the Wii U are hugely compelling: Splatoon, Super Mario Maker, Smash Bros., Bayonetta 2, the Super Mario game, The Legend of Zelda. Arguably, if you line up all of the single platform games for Wii U and the other two platforms, we have by far the most unique games that are highly rated by consumers and highly rated by the media. So those things worked.

One of the things that we have to do better when we launch the NX—we have to do a better job communicating the positioning for the product. We have to do a better job helping people to understand its uniqueness and what that means for the game playing experience. And we have to do a better job from a software planning standpoint to have that continuous beat of great new games that are motivating more and more people to pick up the hardware and more and more people to pick up the software. Those are the critical lessons. And as I verbalize them, they’re really traditional lessons within the industry. You have to make sure people understand the concept, you have to make sure you’ve got a great library of games, and when you do that, you tend to do well.

If they're traditional lessons, industry wide standard, why the f*** do you have to do a better job for the NX?

Most of this screams bulls***. Similar bulls*** with the WiiU. No reference to third party support at all. It all seems to be targeting the consumer when for years it's always been the lack of 3rd party support. Most of that interview centered around utlitising their existing IPs in in new ways (theme park, mobile), seems like nintendo is diversifying because they know their consoles as a whole are f*****g s***.
