Nintendo has learned their lesson from the Nintendo 3DS launch.
The Wii U will launch with several content-rich titles, Satoru Iwata confirmed in the financial briefing.
The Nintendo 3DS, which launched in March 2011, was perceived as having a less-than-stellar launch lineup. The overall performance of the 3DS led Nintendo to drastically reduce the retail price just a few months into the system's lifespan.
Nintendo is vowing not to make the same mistake with Wii U, promising a few rich titles right away at system launch later this year. Iwata stated that the full details of the Wii U launch, except date and price, would be announced at E3 2012.
