Michael Pachter, the videogame industry’s favourite analyst has spoken again. Analysts, for whom it is apt to have the word â€œanalâ€ in their titles on account of the amount of faecal matter that they spew from their mouths, sometimes do actually get things right – and I suspect this will be one of those times.
Pachter reckons that sales of New Super Mario Bros Wii, the 4 player co-op Mario game that harkens back to the series’ halcyon days will â€œShockâ€
â€œThis game defines the NintenDad, it defines him,â€ said the analyst. â€œSo yeah the bored housewife bought WiiFit to get in shape and do yoga [but] this is the first game that I’ve seen on any Nintendo system that’s complete throwback that I can play with my kids. As a NintenDad, I’m psyched to play this game.â€
Considering the system’s monumental 60 million-strong userbase and the universal appeal of everyone’s favourite rotund Italian, mushroom-stomping plumber it’s not hard to agree with him on this.
