Iwata/Miyamoto talk upcoming Wii U software slate, surprise games coming at year's end

Q. What is the timeframe of the new software you were mentioning? What about the development structure?

Iwata : we are not thinking about a long timeframe. We are thinking about Mid year up to End of the year 2013. We also have games that are slated for end of the year that we havent mentioned yet.

Miyamoto : It takes time to understand the charm of Wii U. We are currently offering a few titles but we are aiming for games that sell steadily for the next 3 years not for games that stop selling after a few weeks. We have a lot of ideas for 2 screen play. We definitely need more employees internally and externally so we are strengthening our development teams.

Nintendo is getting quite good at making those long-tail games.

@Lumphead Indeed.

And Sony and Microsoft are certainly lacking in those games.

really the cloud idea seems ok but what they should do is something similar to wii were you can store and play games right off the sd card. and don't make the games' save data tied to that console so if i want to play that game at a friends house i can just pop in my sd card.

You can thank pirates for that not happening. With piracy the way it is, that would almost be suicidal.

please! (Let's just hope they fixed the "freeze for a second" problem by then... that would be horrible in the middle of a game)

They sure have a lot of cool new games coming up this year - the recent Nintendo Direct alone was amazing, and that's Wii U games alone, and when you also count the 3DS games that will be out this year (Pokémon X/Y, western release of Animal Crossing, Luigi's Mansion...) plus I bet they have a surprise or two stored away for E3. Yes, this will be great.
