Following his public apology to investors for the company's ongoing poor financial performance, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has promised the company has learnt from the 3DS' mistakes.

Iwata's promise came alongside confirmation that the final version of the company's forthcoming Wii U console was planned to appear at 2012's E3 Expo.

"As we learned a bitter lesson with the launch of the Nintendo 3DS, we are trying to take every possible measure so that the Wii U will have a successful launch," commented Iwata on the new console's launch.

In his speech Iwata went on to address criticisms regarding the current games offered on Nintendo consoles. Iwata pledged that the new year would see a more consistent series of games and "new genres" for its ailing 3DS.

Iwata's pledge comes just after the company reported a massive 70 billion yen net loss for the sixth month period ending September 30, 2011.
