Mark Rein: Parents Are “Probably Ready To Buy Their Kids” A Wii U

There has been a certain vibe of doom and gloom around the Nintendo brand (despite the fact the 3DS has been mostly breaking sales records) but Mark Rein, VP at Epic, believes the Wii U will be successful.

“I like the Wii U. I think E3 will be a big eye-opener for people,” he said, speaking to Eurogamer.

“It’s a great brand that a lot of parents really trust and they’re probably ready to buy their kids an HD Wii that does that much more than just being an HD Wii.

“I’d love it if they’d done it last year, but I’m excited for them to do it this year. I’d be shocked if it doesn’t do well.”

Personally I was a little underwhelmed by the Wii U at last year’s E3, but I’m sort of hoping to have that opinion changed by proper gameplay footage at this year’s E3.

I want to believe!
