The Wii U may not have had the best success but it is an important console in Nintendo's family and is the best thing to happen to them.
I agree the Wii U was a learning experience for Nintendo. I hated the Wii's motion controls and absolutely refused to buy the new console with the touchscreen. I have mixed feelings about the joycons. They don't look ergonomic at all, and the first thing I'll get for my Switch (it will be my next console) will be a classic controller. However I'm glad it's just thumbsticks and buttons. That's all a good controller should be. I'm also psyched about using cartridges again, and playing all the Wii U ports I missed out on. Will be lots of fun.
"bi-monthly releases of first-party titles" Unless the definition has changed, only releasing Kirby Star Allies for January, February, March, and April does not count as "bi-monthly." Agree with the F-Zero comment though.
I’m pretty certain Nintendo didn’t feel that way during the console’s lifecycle
The switch could have been the best thing that happened to the wii u considering the hardware is near identical.
