Feature: Looking Back at Six Years of Wii

It’s now nearly six years since Wii arrived on the scene. Despite incredible sales across the world – the highest of this generation — it's arguably been a difficult period for Nintendo, with the concept of motion control and a perceived shift towards more family-orientated games alienating a percentage of the traditional fanbase. It would be easy then to assume that the last six years have been bad for Nintendo fans, but in reality, Wii has given us a tremendous amount of content on a system that has been technologically surpassed for half a decade.

So with that in mind, and before the humble little system is sidelined by its HD successor, Nintendo Life looks back at what will soon be the last generation; looking at some examples of where Wii went right, and where it went wrong. (Industry, Nintendo, Wii)
