Nintendo began development on the Wii directly after they released the GameCube. Every Nintendo console since the Nintendo Entertainment System had done worse than the previously released system, and Nintendo had planned to reverse this by in effect replicating the success they had with the Nintendo DS by marketing the console towards both previous consumers with games such as The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and new consumers with games such as Wii Sports, Wii Play, Wii Fit, and Mario Kart Wii.
