Reggie Calls Wii U A “Failure Forward” Because It Led To Switch

Reggie

Reggie Fils-Aimé may no longer be the president of Nintendo, but he’s forever in our hearts – and, if he keeps giving lectures on his time with the Japanese company like the one he did yesterday at Cornell University, that’s going to be the case for a long time.

During the lecture, Reggie – who is now the university’s inaugural Leader in Residence – spoke about a wide range of topics, including the ill-fated Wii U. The successor to the insanely popular Wii, this system aimed to introduce the concept of asymmetrical gameplay to a whole new generation of players, but consumers didn’t respond and it has gone down as one of Nintendo’s most costly hardware flops – despite playing host to some stunning games.

The lecture isn’t available online at the moment (it’s coming, though), but ResetEra user Theorymon has posted up some brief impressions and notes. During one section, Reggie admitted that the Wii U was a bust, but called it a “failure forward”, since it led directly to the creation of the Switch. As we all know, Switch is anything but a failure, and has put Nintendo back at the forefront of the games industry.

Do you think the Wii U was a mistake worth enduring in the light of it leading to the Switch, or are you of the opinion that Reggie’s outlook is a little too positive? Let us know with a comment.
