Peter Molyneux: “Never underestimate Nintendo”


Whilst sharing his belief that they may have “lost their way” with Wii U, legendary game designer Peter Molyneux has stated “never underestimate Nintendo”.

He’d been asked at this year’s Game Developers Conference, held in San Francisco this week, as to what the Japanese can do to turn the console’s fortunes around.

“Well, I mean the problem with Nintendo is that they did a fantastic job of finding these millions of new players with Wii. And the Wii U, it kind of does that but also tries to bring in the existing gamers as well, so I think they may have lost their way a bit”, Molyneux discussed.

“But they are super smart people. Never underestimate Nintendo. They are probably one hardware release away from something that utterly convinces us that they know exactly what the future of gaming should be. I wouldn’t ordain to give them advice”.
