Nintendo Learning From Past Mistakes With Switch Super Bowl Ad

Nintendo profit rises, buoyed by weak yen

Sure enough, the advertisement is putting the Nintendo Switch's best foot forward.

It's easy to look at the lack of success enjoyed by the Wii U and determine that the console was simply bad, but those who actually owned the bygone Nintendo Console know that to be false.

Those still not sold on the service can also try it free when the Nintendo Switch launches this March, as Nintendo doesn't plan on formally launching the subscription model until later this fall.

While the Nintendo Switch menu leak is definitely another juicy tidbit of information, it's just one more thing that Nintendo will likely reveal (intentionally or not) about the console before it releases on March 3, catapulting Nintendo into the current console generation after sticking with the Wii U for several years.




Despite large success since 1997, Nintendo was at its financial peak with 2006's Wii, selling 101.1 million units as of 2016, more than both the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360.

The report then goes on to promise lots of new games: "We will have several follow-up titles from popular franchises on Nintendo 3DS and we are developing many other unannounced titles to continue to enrich the software lineup going forward". In an interview with Nikkei, current Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima stated that the company was "studying" ways to add VR features to the console.

"Furthermore, the price points and play experiences offered by the two systems are different and we do not see them as being in direct competition". Throughout all of Nintendo's ups and downs over the years, the 3DS has endured. "This pre-order momentum is reassuring proof that the core gamer demographic understands the uniqueness of the Nintendo Switch and continues to support us", Tatsumi Kimishima noted. In addition to offering online play, Nintendo's new service will also allow subscribers to download a classic NES or Super NES game each month, similar to free game offers from Microsoft and Sony.
