Post Nintendo Investor Meeting - Jan. 30, 2014
Lots of stuff announced, but here is what I've read so far: Basically it looks like Nintendo is bringing DS to Wii U, implementing more NFC on Wii U, licensing out their characters more often, & developing non-wearable tech. Oh... And Mario Kart 8 is coming this May! Thoughts?

Yeah those were a mistake, but I think of the awesome Zelda games done by Capcom (Minish Cap and Oracle series). Those have been very solid games, and if they do more games like that, I'm all for it. If it's Other M, they can release that on other consoles.

I think if they are able to let some others develop some of their characters, we may actually see some series return. Perhaps Star Fox, or F-Zero or maybe someone else to take the reins for Kid Icarus. Good things can happen when Nintendo assists in the development or is careful about their characters.

@Hattrick - you missed the hardware upgrade for the "fast load". Coming summer - you can start up the GamePad, and instantly load a game without having to navigate to the home menu. It shows recently played titles to choose from.

I did include it in the blog post, but after seeing your note here, I did clarify it a bit more by adding in an additional sentence that describes how/why those games will be available for the quick-start.
