Nintendo released a trailer showcasing the Wii U's exclusive games coming to the console in the next coming months.
The trailer showed clips from The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker HD, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart 8, and the already released New Super Marios Bros. U and Pikmin 3.
Wii U knows part of the reason why they only sold 160,000 units last quarter was because of their lack of exclusive first party games.
"As soon as we get the consumer to buy one piece of software, then that entire transaction becomes profit positive," said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America president.
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata does not think the Wii U's price tag is one of the the reasons for the console's problems and claims to lower the price won't help because of the system's sales numbers.
"If the price is actually an issue [with Wii U], then there is some contradiction between the current sales balance between the Basic and Premium versions of the Wii U," Iwata told CVG. "The basic version should have sold a lot, but the fact of the matter is that people are buying more of the premium version. So the issue is not there," he said.
The console originally launched a basic set for $300 with the deluxe going for $350. Nintendo chief Satoru Iwata feels calls for lowering the price of the Wii U is unwarranted because, "we are already offering [the Wii U] at a good price."
He knows the biggest problem is in development, which is the company's fault.
"I understand that the real issue is the lack of software, and the only solution is to provide the mass-market with a number of quality software titles," said Iwata.
