Q-Games president Dylan Cuthbert believes that Nintendo have the innovative talent to craft new IP that will make the Wii U more compelling to consumers.

With the console’s sales failing to meet even the company’s own expectations, it is software that is regularly seen as being a crucial to its recovery.

“I think software,” Cuthbert replied to Siliconera, asked what Nintendo must do to address the situation. “If they are going to win they are going to have to figure out the games.

He continued, “They probably need like new super IP, a special IP that makes people really interested. But they always come up with something. They are always very innovative.

“Even with the DS when it first came out people said that’s not very good and it’s not going to do very well, but it sold hundreds of millions and had lots of innovative titles.

“I think they will find something that will sell a lot. Who would have known Wii Fit would have sold like 15 million units?”

Cuthbert had previously worked for Argonaut Software prior to founding Q-Games, with which he helped Nintendo develop the very first Star Fox and its sequel.
