Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president Martin Tremblay believes the Wii U will benefit from recent software reveals.

While doom and gloom tends to be the name of the game many think the Wii U is playing, there are still embers of hope for Nintendo's long struggling console. Most notably, Nintendo's recent E3 presentations unveiled a slew of first party exclusives that Nintendo hopes will help move Wii U's from store shelves to living rooms. According to some, the Wii U's resurgence is just a matter of time.

"We're a believer on the Wii U," said Martin Tremblay, president of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "Honestly, we hope everybody's going to work out. It's just good for the industry." While some publishers have been backing away from the Wii U in light of its ongoing sales problems, Warner Bros. has been fairly consistent in its support. The publisher has previously brought games like Batman: Arkham City and Injustice: Gods Among Us to the console and will be releasing titles like Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure for Wii U in the future.

"I think the console has been off to a slow start, but I think they're going to fix the problem," said Tremblay. The biggest problem in the past he says has been a lack of content. "I think [Nintendo] showed tons of new content [at E3] that will re-energize the platform." Nintendo would probably agree with his assessment. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime recently indicated that the company expects the Wii U to make up some ground in the coming holiday season.
