Disappointed fans wondering when a “killer app” is going to arrive that is made specifically for the Nintendo 3DS have company: none other than the House of Mario itself. Nintendo’s president, Satoru Iwata, admitted the system’s shortcomings to investors.

“We were not able to launch Nintendo 3DS at a time when a sufficient number of strong software titles were ready,” Iwata said.
