Reggie: It’s a mistake to say core gamers have been ignored

Admittedly, Nintendo’s holiday 2009 lineup is much better than last year’s with the inclusion of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. As far as the whole year goes though, there have also been a number of remakes/upgrades/compilation releases. But Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO of Nintendo of America, believes that it’s a mistake to say that hardcore gamers have been ignored.

“…But I think it’s a mistake to say that we’ve ignored the gamer or that we don’t have products for the core gamer. I mean, New Super Mario Bros. has every gamer excited. Just the little tidbits that we’ve shown about the new Zelda for Wii has gamers tremendously excited. We’re going to continue to bring great content both to that experienced player as well as the brand new player, and that’s what we do really well.”
