Nintendo Holding Back the 3DS Games?

Nintendo Holding Back the 3DS Software

One of the biggest problems that Nintendo faced with the introduction of their Nintendo 3DS handheld is the lack of quality software that launched with the device.  Nintendo has reassured gamers that the software that they so crave is on the way.  However, if you think Nintendo is going to flood the market with choices for gamers, think again.

Satoru Iwata explained that this over saturation is not the company’s objective during this all important first holiday season for the handheld.

” It’s so dense that, if we added any more software, the total sales would not increase,” the Nintendo president explained in a recent investors briefing.  “It’s not practical for us to put them on hold for too long, but we think that some of them may be held for a certain amount of time so that there will be a short interval between when they are completed and when they are launched.”

Nintendo definitely has a lot of first party content on the horizon for the 3DS.  Luigi’s Mansion 2, Mario Kart, Super Mario Land 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising and others are due out in short order, or whenever Nintendo feels it will be most beneficial for the device.
