As part of Nintendo's second quarter financial reports, the company's provided the transcript of a Q&A with those at the presentation. While all of it is highly informative - and you can read it here - most of it would act as a dangerous, textual sedative to the majority of us, although some snippets caught the eye.
One question centred on how Nintendo plan to market the Wii U as Playstation 4 and Xbox One take their bows, and Nintendo President Satoru Iwata responded with an interesting little tidbit about how the company see their games now - and how they see them in 2014:
"We have an offering of software for the end of this calendar year that encourages family fun at home. Nintendo is preparing a number of Wii U games for next year that greatly appeal to highly skilled users, but at the end of this calendar year, we have quite a few offerings that can be played by the whole family, dad and the kids, or grandparents and the kids."
With Wii Party U, Wii Sports Club and Wii Fit U all on their way, it's clear what this year's family-friendly slate is made up of, but 2014's still a little hazy. Donkey Kong": Tropical Freeze and Bayonetta 2 certainly fit the "highly skilled" bill, but the promise of more has us very interested.
Similarly interesting - and also a bit lovely - was what Iwata had to say about the company's position in the industry, particularly in regard to the recent death of former President Hiroshi Yamauchi:
"Since former President Yamauchi passed away, I have been considering what he taught us in the end, and his words that the worst thing we can do in entertainment is to follow what others are doing spoke directly to my heart. Following and imitating others is the kind of reasoning that Nintendo tries to avoid the most".
