In an interview with Forbes, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata apologized for the company’s lackluster E3 media briefing and said that while it chose not to display more core games, that doesn’t mean that the developer isn’t working n them.
“If there is any perception that Nintendo is ignoring the core gamers, it’s a misunderstanding and we really want to get rid of that misunderstanding by any means,” Iwata said. “We are sorry about [the E3] media briefings, specifically for those who were expecting to see Nintendo show something about ‘Super Mario’ or ‘Legend of Zelda.’ However, the fact of the matter is the so-called ‘big titles’ need a long, long development period. … We really didn’t think this year’s E3 media briefing was the time to do so.”
Sounds like the same old song they did at last years E3…maybe these guys need to be grilled by a reporter that has some cajones and call them on their crap.
