Power Button - Episode 129: Nintendo's Road Ahead
May 18, 2014
Where does Nintendo go from here? The company is facing serious problems as its flagship Wii U continues to sell at a very unprofitable pace. On this episode of the Power Button podcast, Blake Grundman and I discuss Nintendo's issues, identify their problems, look at the recently announced Nintendo figurine plans, and speculate on how the company can turn things around. As part of this conversation I talk a lot about my new Wii U, my favorite games so far, what I'd change about the hardware, and offer my general impressions as an owner of the console. Not to be left out, we also hit the 3DS for a moment as Blake talks about Mario Golf: World Tour. We have an hour of conversation for you primed and ready to go.
