Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has once again turned his attention to Nintendo, discussing the company within the latest episode of his weekly Pach Attack show.

He shared his thoughts having been posed the question as to why Nintendo have only chosen to release the Wii Mini only across Canada, but also alongside the Wii U.

Pachter then seized the opportunity to explain that the company’s pursuit for quality ultimately means everything arrives far later than it should do.

“I just think Nintendo’s a few years late,” Pachter expressed. “So, the Wii U is the Wii HD, it’s coming three years too late. The Wii Mini was a great idea back in 2008/2009, they probably should have brought it out then – they’re way too late.

“Poor Nintendo, I think they try way too hard to get things right and it takes a long time. The eShop is seven or eight years too late, online multiplayer for Nintendo is seven or eight years too late.

“Nintendo has got great ideas, it’s just that they’re great ideas from the last decade. The Wii Mini is one of them.”

Ouch. Do you agree with his remarks?

Pachter previously commented that no one would support the Wii U, Nintendo’s global president Satoru Iwata recently stating that the console was “selling steadily” at retail.
