Wii U needs a strong launch line-up, says Square Enix

The success of the Wii U will depend on its initial line-up and price, according to one of the leading technology experts at Square Enix.

After a confusing E3 reveal - and a problematic launch for the 3DS - you'd be forgiven for being a bit sceptical about Nintendo's Wii U. But Square Enix's worldwide technology director Julien Merceron believes that the machine will still find success if the launch line-up is strong enough.

"I'd say, don't write off the console," Merceron told "For every console it's the same thing: one of the most important things is going to be the launch line-up. We see that every time there's a great title shipping on PSP, the PSP sales go up, and every time there's a great title shipping on 3DS, the 3DS sales go up.

Ok Square, so that means you'll be releasing a Kingdom Hearts, or a FF spinoff game for it right? I want an FF tactics WiiU

I second the thing about Kingdom Hearts Wii U.

Who would disagree to Kingdom Hearts? oh wait, it must be a troll. I say KH3 should be on every system including 3DS Vita and PC.

Dunno, I just got one more disagree xD Didn't say anything about it being exclusive to Wii U (if you ask me everyone should be able to enjoy the game), I would just applaud if anything Kingdom Hearts came for the console, as I love that franchise very much (Kingdom Hearts 2 is one of my all-time favorite games after all).
