Granted, I bought a Switch but not a Wii U but I was in college when it was big and mainly played Melee. But I'm very curious why the Wii U did so poorly (link to Nintendo console sales figures here) after a wildly successful Wii system. Lack of software can't explain it, it's not like the Switch had that many games to start off either. And the concept of the Switch is very similar to the Wii U. I do think the Wii U's name sucked but I can't imagine that caused it alone (also I imagine that Nintendo had focus groups on the name while planning it). So what exactly is it? Portability alone? I don't know that many people where that's the main thing they get out of the Switch. But it's got to be something.
