It's no secret the Wii U is struggling financially, but Nintendo doesn't seem to mind. While Microsoft and Sony are enjoying over 10 and 20 million units shipped, the Wii U is just barely over 9 million despite having an extra year on the market. Poor sales have even led to major publishers like EA dropping Wii U support (their coming soon page doesn't even list the Wii U or even the 3DS even though Peter Moore claims Nintendo is a "great partner").

Scott Moffitt, the company's vice president of sales, explains why Nintendo isn't worried about a lack of support:

quote Financial Post
"Our job and our goal is through our first-party games, to build the installed base up so that it makes it easy for third-party publisher to bring their third-party content to our systems"
It makes sense, really. Nintendo never really has been big on making more money than the competition, but their games have spoken for themselves over the years. The Wii U was originally marketed to try and bring more core gamers back to Nintendo over Sony and Microsoft, but that hasn't quite panned out. Reviewers and gamers alike both seem to love Wii U games for the most part, so it's hard to say that the system is a failure. It may not be bringing home the bacon like the PS4, but the Wii U does have quality games that pretty much everyone can enjoy, and that's what really counts at the end of the day

Possibly looking to "smart devices" as a means to expand platforms Despite holding a "powerhouse" platform in the 3DS that continues to reach new milestones in the U.S. alone, Nintendo is still weighed down by a stagnant response to the Wii U.

When Sony and Square Enix announced to the world that a remake of Final Fantasy VII was definitely happening at this year's E3, the Internet and the convention hall erupted. Many are still skeptical given the numerous false promises we've been given over the years, but it's actually happening (we hope). A remake of this magnitude will obviously take time. Square Enix isn't dumb enough to just touch up their flagship franchise's bestselling entry, back away from remake and call it a remaster, then rerelease it on PSN for the PS4. Final Fantasy VII has sold almost 11 million copies across all platforms, including Steam's 2013 re-release of the initial PC port. Many fans have speculated that the remake will be released in 2017 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of VII's initial release on the PS1.

The subject of a remake has been something Square Enix has dodged or denied for years, but after announcing that it's happening this week, game director Tetsuya Nomura revealed in an interview that he wants to do more remakes of classic Final Fantasy titles. The only catch? He doesn't want to do VIII or IX. While remakes of both Squall and Zidane's adventures would be welcomed by many fans and certainly criticized by others after retelling Cloud's story, Nomura was thinking further back to another fan favorite: Final Fantasy VI.

Speaking to various media outlets through a group interview session at E3 on Tuesday, Nomura was asked by VentureBeat if there was any interest in remaking Final Fantasy VIII or IX. He decided to stretch further back in the series catalog, stating:

quote VentureBeat
“Considering that we have remakes of Final Fantasy up to IV and then we have VII — I’ve been working with Mr. [Yoshinori] Kitase since Final Fantasy V, and we’ve noticed that V and VI are missing. That bothers me,” Nomura said. “How come we skipped over those two?”
Terra's adventures in VI are almost as beloved as Cloud and company's struggle against Sephiroth. While it certainly hasn't sold as many copies as VII has, it was just as loved by critics. A remake of Final Fantasy VI would certainly be a welcome addition to many a RPG fan's library, but what platform(s) would it be on? What kind of direction would the art take from the original 2D sprites? The iOS port is certainly prettier than the original SNES release, but it's still 2D. Would Square Enix wait for a special occasion like the game's 25th anniversary in 2019 or even the 30th in 2024?
