PixelJunk dev: Wii U needs a 'super IP' to save it

Dylan Cuthbert sure Nintendo can pull out the stops

The Wii U is not having the best time at the moment, enduring criticism and not-exactly-whelming sales. Q-Games president Dylan Cuthbert has lent his tongue to the discussion, claiming that what the Wii U needs is one extraordinary software property to tip the scales.

"If they are going to win they are going to have to figure out the games," the PixelJunk developer told Siliconera"They probably need like new super IP, a special IP that makes people really interested.

"But they always come up with something. They are always very innovative. Even with the DS when it first came out people said that's not very good and it's not going to do very well, but it sold hundreds of millions and had lots of innovative titles. I think they will find something that will sell a lot. Who would have known Wii Fit would have sold like 15 million units?"

Here's hoping. Right now my Wii U's done very little since I reviewed LEGO City Undercover, and it's not for lack of desire. I want to play my Wii U more, but I just don't care about what it's offering right now. I hope Nintendo trots out this "super IP" sooner rather than later.
