Reggie: ‘How could core gamers feel left out?’

Many gamers were apparently disappointed with the lack of “core” titles at Nintendo’s E3 conference last night, but Nintendo of America boss man Reggie Fils-Aimes doesn’t understand why they all feel left out.

“How could you feel left out? The Animal Crossing that we’ve been hearing about that people wanted,” he told G4. “Fully connected to the internet, go to other people’s towns. Plus as I said, Grand Theft Auto on the DS. How do you feel left out with those types of announcements?

“Make no mistake, Mr Iwata said quite clearly: Mario teams, Zelda teams are working, they’re bringing product out for Wii this generation. We’re going to continue to bring all our best franchises to both of our key platforms and continue driving that experience both core as well as brand new consumers.”

To be honest Reggie, we don’t think the problem “core” gamers have is with the quality. It’s the quantity.

Thanks, CVG
