Reggie: We made Wii Music look too simple

Like Othello, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime wants you to know that Wii Music is simple to learn, but will take a lifetime to master.

“What’s powerful in Wii Music is this juxtaposition of something that looks so simple but is wonderfully difficult to master,” Reggie Fils-Aime told VentureBeat. “We may have done that title an injustice at E3 by showing something that looked so easy. We made it appear too simple. Now we’re showing the tremendous variety of instruments and tones and how challenging it is to make music that sounds good.”

Reggie went on to say Nintendo expects Wii Music to be one of the system’s top sellers. We’ll see, won’t we?

Update: Nick Chester, editor-in-chief of hardcore gaming blog Destructoid, feels exactly the same way.
