Nintendo is really screwing up.
I'm such a fan of their main franchises that I don't really care. I have the Wii U, am enjoying it, and can't wait for Metroid, Mario, Zelda, Star Fox... whatever.
But I don't see a single reason why a casual gamer would've picked this up. Or a teenager who isn't as in love with the classic franchises as I am. It really is a mess.
