Two weeks ago, the biggest platformer on the Wii U was a very good one: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
Today, the same thing happened with a lot of indie games.
The game that sold millions of copies across the first three months of 2016 was now out of a job, as Nintendo announced that it had scrapped the game after only one week.
While Nintendo has a history of making big changes to its games, the Wii Remote and Wii U GamePad weren’t the only things that suffered.
In many cases, the game’s developers were struggling to stay afloat, and the company didn’t seem to be able to do much about it.
Nintendo of America CEO Reggie Fils-Aime blamed the loss on a number of factors: poor performance on the new Nintendo Switch console, a lack of the kind of updates that gamers have come to expect from the company.
“The Switch hardware is going to be a massive leap forward for Nintendo and a huge leap forward in the gaming industry,” he said at the time.
“We’re excited about the potential of it and the power that it will bring to our gaming ecosystem, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure that the Switch is the platform for this.”
For most of 2016, Nintendo was the biggest player in the video game industry, but 2016 was a different story.
For the first time in history, the company’s top console was a new device that, while a great improvement over the previous generation, still required a lot more effort to play.
“Nintendo is going through a time of transition, but the Switch has shown us that Nintendo is able to adapt and thrive in that time,” Filsaime said in January.
“I think that’s why, in the future, we are going to see a lot bigger changes and a lot deeper improvements in the Nintendo Switch ecosystem.”
That was a strong statement.
At that time, the Switch was a bit of a novelty.
And it was an early failure.
The Wii U had been a smash hit, and it looked like Nintendo was going to take the next big leap forward.
The Switch was supposed to be the new platform.
It was supposed be the future of gaming.
But for some reason, 2016 ended up being a bit like 2013, with one of the biggest, most successful games of all time failing to make it to market.
And in the wake of that failure, the Nintendo Watch is a bit less than a year old.
And as it turns out, the way that Nintendo handles its hardware problems is just as important as the hardware itself.
The new consoles that are supposed to replace the Wii and WiiU have to be built from scratch, and they have to support a massive amount of new technology.
But as the Nintendo NX has shown, there’s a lot that Nintendo can learn from what happened in 2016, and that lesson applies to all of its hardware.
The Nintendo Switch was the first console to support Bluetooth, a feature that would later be extended to the GamePad and the Switch Remote, and a feature found in the PlayStation 4 Pro, which the company later added to the console.
It’s also the first controller to support HDR, which was announced alongside the Switch and GamePad.
But while the Switch’s hardware is designed to run on the latest, best gaming hardware, there are some things that the company has to learn from 2016.
Nintendo’s Switch hardware will have to run a lot less battery life The Switch’s battery life was a huge hit, with people finding it was very much worth the wait.
According to Nintendo, the battery life on the Switch “was significantly better than on any other system we have tested.”
That meant that when the Switch launched in November, it lasted for eight hours and 40 minutes, which is almost a full hour longer than the average Xbox One or PlayStation 4.
The console’s battery can be expected to last longer than that if it can handle a lot longer games.
But that’s not what matters.
The real test comes when you play games like Grand Theft Auto V. The Xbox One Pro and PlayStation 4 S both last longer on batteries than the Switch, but it’s not because of battery life.
It is because of the games themselves.
“There’s a huge difference between the Xbox One and PlayStation Four,” said Josh Miller, a software engineer at Nintendo.
“With the Xbox, if you’re doing a high-end game like GTA V, it will last longer because of all of the hardware.
With the Switch it’s because the battery is just so good.”
When it comes to battery life, it’s worth looking at the games you’re playing, and figuring out how much time you can get away with.
For GTA V and Grand Theft AutomV, the average PS4 Pro and Xbox One S lasted for around 10 hours and 45 minutes.
With GTA V for the Xbox and PlayStation 5 Pro, the PS5 lasted for about 15 hours and 32 minutes.
