What happened, man?
Like a bad hangover that everyone knows about, Nintendo has been in a bit of a rut lately. Their projected sales for the Wii U was cut by 69 percent and game sales were cut by 50 percent.
Nintendo Co. President Satoru Iwata originally told Nintendo's investors that the company would bring in a 100 billion
yen for the year. However, the company is now reporting a 35 billion yen loss.
OH LORDY, THE END IS NEIGH FOR NINTENDO.
THIS IS IT, KISS THAT FAT LOVABLE PLUMBER GOODBYE.
Stop worrying too much, folks.
Nintendo is one of the longest-running hardware maker in video games. Of course things look bleak but Nintendo will [u]hopefully[/u] figure out how to turn this around.
As rumors spread about what Nintendo will do; I will put in an opinion about this whole deal on how to fix Nintendo.
[li]Time to crank out those first party games that we all know and love. For example, bring out a new Zelda that isn't an HD remake. How about a new Metroid game, maybe even a Metroid Prime game? WHAT ABOUT A F-ZERO GAME?![/li]
[li]Time to redesign the ad campaign for the Wii U. We all know the ads really sucked as people did NOT know that the Wii U was a new console. Nintendo knows that they have lost the console wars with their underpowered machine, but they need to sell the fact they have all their Nintendo friends just waiting for them in the Wii U. It is time to be the secondary console, not the main console.[/li]
[li]Speaking of Nintendo friends, Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. need to get out for the Wii U. This will help boost some sales, but not enough without proper advertising. [/li]
[li]A proper Mario game. Not a Super Mario 3D World or New Super Mario Bros Wii U We Have Ran Out of Ideas Because This Was On The DS. A proper, 3D, Mario game. Something along the likes of another Mario Galaxy or even Mario Sunshine. [/li]
[li][u]CAN I STILL HAVE A NEW F-ZERO GAME?![/u]
[li]Nintendo needs to connect the accounts, and games, that users may have on their 3DS and their Wii U. Who doesn't want to play Earthbound on the go?[/li]
[li]Finally, Nintendo needs to be real with us. We know it isn't sunshine anymore at their company. They need to tell us what is up. [/li]
Nintendo, we all love you. Without you, we wouldn't be here. Please realize that you guys need to get your act together and save the company before it implodes on the Wii U. The 3DS cannot save you for long.

P.S. Nintendo, if the rumors about the Wii Fusion are right, you need to announce that at E3 or have some fucking games there to make me excited about my Wii U paperweight.
P.S.S. Bring back Nintendo Power. They had the coolest posters.
