Take the Wii U for example. Seriously, just take it away. It’s a better system than lots of people give it credit for, but it was a failure out of the gate and it never found its footing. Another console that stumbled early thanks to Nintendo’s poor planning was the Nintendo 3DS. The system eventually found a dedicated player base, but it took more time than it should have. Going back further, another huge misstep was Nintendo’s failure to embrace CD technology in the Nintendo 64. That started Nintendo’s unfortunate trend of turning away from third-party developers who then flocked to the competition.

Speaking of competition, at one point in the ‘90s, after the release of the SNES, Nintendo had the chance to partner with Sony on a new piece of hardware. The plan failed, resulting in Sony’s release of the PlayStation and its successors, a set of consoles that would give Nintendo a trouncing most console generations. Then there was the Virtual Boy, which, the less said about it the better. And Nintendo’s utter failure to embrace the internet until way after its competitors had. In terms of peripherals, you can’t do much worse than the Power Glove even though it looked so cool! Even Nintendo’s latest big releases, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, have their share of mistakes. Without further ado, here are 10 unforgettable Nintendo video game mistakes.
