Nice to see that Nintendo really do seem to get how to do DLC right as well.
I think the most important factor, is that the DS/3DS were able to build a huge female demographic in Japan that brought Animal Crossing, Tomodachi Collection and Rhythm Heaven huge success. That same demographic didn't quite transfer to the Wii.

Well. Questioning the Board of Directors aside, Nintendo doing big things in Japan is not the problem. It has not been for a long time. Their problem has been addressing the Western market.
