Sega Europe president Jurgen Post remains hopeful that the three Nintendo exclusive Sonic games will help boost Wii U sales.
During an interview with MCV Post discussed the recent three-game deal with Nintendo, as well as his concerns regarding the Wii U's slow start. Post says that Sonic is a good fit for Nintendo, as "historically Sonic games have always sold very well on Nintendo platforms." According to Post, Sega and Nintendo have always worked well together, noting that "the first game Sonic debuted on after we stopped making hardware was a Nintendo platform."
It was reported yesterday that the Wii U is selling at a loss, as retail giantAsda in the UK has suspended Wii U stock.
When asked if the Wii U's slow start is a concern, Post admitted it is, but remains hopeful that Sonic can turn it around. Claiming that Sonic: Lost World "might just be our best Sonic game yet", Post is confident that its release will help boost sales of the console.
Post holds hope for the console, particularly after Nintendo's E3 presentation, saying he thinks it help "people think that things might change."
He goes on to point out that the mention of the 3DS price drop at E3 could point to a price drop for the Wii U.
The Wii U sold just 160,000 units globally in Nintendo's first financial quarter. Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata accepted the blame for the poor Wii U sales earlier this year, and has now pledged to "strive to regain 'Nintendo-like' profits" in the current fiscal year.
