Feature: Nintendo in 2012 - Part One

Not so long ago it could be argued that Nintendo was having some relaxing times, with DS and Wii systems flying off shelves and console rivals rushing to the platform in order to hop on the motion-control train. Of course, technology and the gaming industry evolve, and in 2011 Nintendo found itself trying to revive a struggling new handheld, just as Wii started to gasp for breath. Nintendo's tasks for 2012 seemed clear: get the 3DS into the game with serious sales, build excitement for Wii U, and try not to let anyone notice the gradual abandonment of Wii.

Part One of Nintendo Life's review of 2012 looks at the first half of 2012, which was mostly about 3DS, with a bonanza of marketing noise and big announcements culminating with E3 in June. (3DS, Industry, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

Poor nintendo.. I was really hoping they learned their lesson but i guess not.. Hopefully their nx 1st party exclusive is jaw dropping because everything so far seems so bland.. Not bad in any way but not all that exciting either.. Firmware update the hell out of wii u & add accomplishments, cross game chat, improved load times, more demos, etc..
