I'm so proud of Nintendo and their strong ambitions to never give up, despite the hardships they encountered with past consoles. This goes to show their overall power in the gaming world.
There's truly no other company that can bounce back so quickly like Nintendo. Iwata, Gunpei, all the legends are carrying them to victory!
