Nintendo is paying to bring games to U.S. theaters
Nintendo is offering to pay to bring U.s. theaters to games sold by its Wii U console, in a bid to win over critics who say the Nintendo console is a relic that doesn’t work as advertised.
The move comes after Nintendo said it would begin selling its Wii software on the U.K. market next month, though the company still has no plans to make the console available in the U, where the Wii U’s console is still sold.
Nintendo said Tuesday it would provide “the most complete and competitive package” for U.N. movie theaters, as well as the “most innovative movie experiences” it has made for Wii U users.
The company said the “highest level of quality and creativity” will be available to theaters, while also providing “premium service” and “excellent customer service.”
“We have committed to making U. S. theaters the most comprehensive and competitive movie experiences,” the company said in a statement.
“We will continue to make Wii U movies available to our U. K. customers.”
Nintendo, which is under fire from some consumers for its failure to deliver a “good enough” Wii U to consumers, has repeatedly said that it is committed to bringing Wii U software to theaters.
It has said it has a “high degree of confidence” in the Wii system.
The Nintendo Switch, which was announced this year, is set to hit stores in the United States and Europe next month.
The console is set for release in 2017.
