As disappointed as I was by watching the Direct on my iPhone at work, when I came home my kids(4,6) were actually watching the demo's via the eshop on Wiiu.... And they were absolutely thrilled.

'Dad, we just saw a game where we can battle with Mario and Donkey Kong' and 'also, a Mario Kart, but we don't need that because we have that Sonic whats it called racing game', where my son replied 'duh, but that one doesn't have MARIO'. 'But dad, please come watch, we saw a Mario game like on mom's 3ds and it's that same game but we can play together'. 'Yeah, and a game with adorable animals which you can take care of and there is a boy and girl version'.....(pokemon x/y).

.....well, at least they liked it and it seems that I know where my gaming budget will be spend on. Only thing I love more than gaming, is watching them play, learn and cooperate. Well Nintendo, good job. Maybe I was looking at this from a wrong point of view, and is it not you who went wrong, but did I outgrow you. At least the kids will have a safe gaming invironment to start learning the how games, internet and communication works.

What the world needs is more geniuses with humility, there are so few of us left

Good point.  My daughter is still too young to play, but when she's as old as your kids I want her playing Nintendo for all the reasons you mentioned.  

 

Not just for the safety, but for the simple joy of gaming that Nintendo games bring.

Well, not to piss anyone off, but children are Nintendo's main demographic.  From what I heard, they did everything right.

Great story there!

Always good to see kids trying to get their parents play with them and sharing stuff that makes them happy!

I'm glad to hear your kids like the news today. That's why I love Nintendo, because when my kids are old enough to play, I can sit down and enjoy the game with them.

This is what it is all about in 'Nintendoland'. I cannot wait to play the new Mario with my 7 year old. She has had trouble with the 3d games, but this will get her going.

People keep on saying that Nintendo needs to change with the times, but they forget that what makes Nintendo is that it stays in the timeless wonder of childhood. You grow older, but there's always someone discovering Mario for the first time.

Which is why I laugh at those who complain how everything nintendo is just rehashes of the old. Nintendo's target audience might not remember the old.
